The region of Paphos is home of many archaeological sites are historically invaluable, with Katos Paphos declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Kato Paphos archaeological Park includes sites and monuments from prehistory to the Middle Ages, and remains of the Roman period as the mosaic floors of four Roman villas.
The complex also includes the monuments of Asklipieion, Odeion, Agora, “Saranta Kolones” (Forty Columns) Fortress, “Limeniotissa” Ruins of the first Christian Basilica and the “Tombs of the Kings”.
The historical centre of Paphos, dominated by the castle fortress of Lusignan, has a beautiful coastal pedestrian street adorned with tall palm trees and lined with luxury hotels and lavish restaurants. Follow it until you reach Paphos marina and look for the ideal tavern to enjoy a hearty fish dinner, preceded by hors d’oeuvres on large communal platters with sauces made from organic vegetables grown on the island. The port is the nerve centre for tourists, where you can dine the whole year round on the sea, which by night reveals its moods – from the gentle lapping of calm waters to the thunderous roar of a storm.
