Paphos is the ideal holiday destination for culture vultures who love the sunshine. You’ll find countless historical sites and monuments to explore, ranging from the birth place of goddesses to the burial sites of kings.

There are a number of things to cross off your list of things to do in Paphos. Visiting the ancient castle, exploring the massive archaeological site and discovering the Tombs of the Kings just scrapes the surface of this popular resort’s historical offering.
