Located on the south-west coast of Cyprus, the ancient town of Paphos has been a popular holiday destination for thousands of years. Paphos was thought to have been the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, and pilgrims travelled from across Greece to worship at her temple. You’ll find ancient ruins and archaeological sites across the south, while the north is a bustling modern centre.
