History and culture
When it comes to cultural holiday destinations, Paphos is about as good as it gets. The whole resort is an ancient wonder that draws thousands of holidaymakers year after year. The famous castle on the harbour, the Tombs of the Kings and the breathtaking birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite are just some of the places that everyone should take the opportunity to see. Not to mention the vast archaeological park, brimming with prehistoric remains.
Night life and dining
Paphos is definitely not lacking in bars and restaurants. You’ll find an excellent selection of places to eat and drink around the harbour. Enjoy a walk along the promenade and take your pick out of the many waterfront cafés and bars where you can enjoy a bite to eat or a refreshing KEO. But if you’re looking for a big night out, head to Agiou Antoniou Street, otherwise known as ‘Nightlife Street’ or ‘Bar Street’. It’s here that you’ll find the highest concentration of bars in the city.
