Situated on the south west coast of Cyprus, Paphos holds great appeal to visitors of all ages. Steeped in history, with a wealth of ancient sites, some dating back to the 4th century BC, paphos is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Island's capital in Roman times, and many archaeolgicical sites, is to be found in Kato, or lower, Paphos, whilst the old town known as Ktima sits further inland, high up on a rocky plateau. The surrounding area is countryside, rich in vegetation with banana plantations, citrus groves and vineyards which lead on inland to the gentle foothills of the Western Troodos Mountains

My First Trip to Cyprus

I've been to Paphos in Cyprus once about 4/5 years ago, I enjoyed it that much that for my 1st holiday alone without my mom & dad.

I am going with plans to go and see all the sights again and try to get to other places that I didnt see before. I am going with my boyfriend who hasn't been to cyprus before and I'm hoping that I can get him to see and do things that I did the first time I was there and more.
