Cruising to Paphos

If you're looking for a place that acts as a bridge between the modern and ancient worlds, while also offering some great beaches and other amenities, then Paphos is the perfect holiday destination for you. As the supposed birthplace of Aphrodite - the Greek goddess of Love - it forms the very epicentre of the mythological realm, and also happens to be bathed in sunshine all year round.

There are loads of incredible archaeological wonders to discover in Paphos, the majority of which are located in the region known as Kato Paphos. Highlights here include the House of Theseus - who is of course most famous for slaying the legendary Minotaur - while just off the coast itself is a dramatic-looking rock that is thought to be the very spot where Aphrodite was born.

Of course, not everything in Paphos is ancient, and newer parts of town can be found along the waterfront, where tourists can enjoy an incredible selection of amazing bars, restaurants and cafes overlooking the sea. Other nearby attractions include the Aphrodite Water Park, which offers a fun day out for visitors of all ages, and the Paphos Bird Park, where nature enthusiasts can catch a glimpse of some of the Mediterranean's most stunning creatures.
