Located on the southwest coast of Cyprus and with only 50 thousand inhabitants, the entire town of Paphos is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in large part due to its mythological roots.
One of the most visited sites in Paphos is Paphos Castle which was originally built by the Byzantines in the 12th century and now serves as the cultural centre of the town.
Uncovered after nearly 16 centuries under the earth, mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus and Aion are extraordinarily well preserved.
Paphos International Airport (airport code PFO) flies nearly 2 million people into and out of the city each year. Cyprus Airways, Jet2, and Thompson Airlines fly from Paphos most often.
From crystal clear waters to mythological foundations and expansive underground tombs, Paphos has much to offer.
