Paphos — 3 nights

The legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the capital of western Cyprus, the city of Paphos showcases an abundance of archaeological, architectural, and historical sites.
Step off the beaten path and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Spas. We've included these beaches for you: Pissouri Beach and Kourion Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Room Escape Games in Limassol City (about 1 hour away). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Nature & Parks, Head underground at Sea Caves, buy something for everyone on your list at Kings Avenue Mall, and explore the ancient world of The House of Dionysus.

Cyprus travel guide

4.1
From sandy beaches to stone castles, and from bustling nightclubs to romantic tavernas, Cyprus is the perfect destination for those who seek a complete Mediterranean experience. Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture. Beyond the divide between the predominantly Greek south and Turkish north, throughout the island you'll recognize Venetian, Genoese, British, and Middle Eastern influences. Of course, the main attraction that draws tourists from all over the world is the sunny coast, dotted with historical cities and fully equipped beaches. There is also a selection of peaceful villages, both inland and by the sea, where those looking for a more secluded holiday can retreat. A visit to the country's capital Nicosia, with its vibrant art and culture scene and numerous sightseeing opportunities, is definitely worth adding to your itinerary wherever you're staying.
