Paphos is famed for its archaeological sites. It’s believed to be the birthplace of Greek Goddess of love and beauty ‘Aphrodite’. Paphos proudly boasts the remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs that belong to Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods.
New Paphos is the modern city that incorporates the harbour. The crystal clear water attracts divers to explore underwater ruins and wrecks. The water temperature ranges between 16 to 27 degree Celsius which is perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling. Fishing is also a popular activity that can be enjoyed all year round.
