    What to do in Paphos?

    1. Among the unmissable things to see during a stay in Paphos is the Archaeological Park. This is characterised by its magnificent mosaics that are quite simply breathtaking. Within the space of 6 metres you can marvel at two mosaics created six hundred years apart yet still intact... it’s hardly surprising UNESCO has classified this as a world heritage site.
    2. To round off a wonderful day, what better than horse riding in the Paphos hills to watch the sunset? It’ll be an unforgettable moment.
    3. The Mediaeval Castle of Paphos, built over a thousand years ago, is emblematic of the city. This fortress looking out over the Mediterranean served many functions over the years (including as a prison, and a salt warehouse). You’ll be transported on a journey through history!
    4. The Tombs of the Kings archaeological site, dating from over two thousand years ago, is both mysterious and fascinating. Immerse yourself in a maze of staircases and columns to discover all the secrets of these catacombs!
    5. The Saint Neophytos Monastery is 9 km from Paphos, in the mountains near the village of Tala. Although it might seem hard to get to, your efforts will be rewarded once you see this magnificent building. The frescoes and Byzantine icons inside will take your breath away.
    6. Aphrodite’s rock will transport you back more than three thousand years! They say that it was here that Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, rose from the waves. Let your imagination wander as you gaze at this rock, preferably at sunset. Romantic experience guaranteed!
    7. If you need to cool down or relax, take a trip to Coral Bay. This beautiful sandy beach with its transparent water will give you all the relaxation you need. For ramblers, there are lots of walks, or simply take a stroll around the port and city of Paphos.

    Practical information for your trip to Paphos

    • Brussels Airlines flights arrive and depart from Paphos International Airport, which is just under 20 minutes’ drive from the centre of Paphos. There are also two bus lines that cover this route.
    • Time zone: UTC/GMT+3.
    • Currency: The local currency is the euro. You won’t have any trouble finding cash machines (Visa, MasterCard and AM) and paying by bank card.
    • Telephone calls and Wi-Fi: The dialing code for Cyprus is +357. You will have no trouble finding Wi-Fi. Indeed, Wi-Fi networks are available in the airport, and in many of Paphos’s hotels, restaurants and cafés.
    • Electric sockets: These have a standard voltage of 240 V. If you use “European” plugs, you will need an adaptor. You do not need an adaptor for British plugs as the three-pronged plug is standard.
    • Travel information: European Union citizens do not need a visa for a stay of less than 3 months in Cyprus. An identity card or passport is sufficient. Take note, the Cypriot government does not allow entry to tourists arriving from the north of the country. The following cities have been declared as illegal ports of entry:

    What to do and not do in Paphos?

    • If you are thinking of visiting religious sites, you should dress appropriately in keeping with Cypriot culture, so no shorts and t-shirts, please!
    • Do make use of the buses which are very well organised. Buses come fairly frequently, and the stops are strategically placed. It’s a good alternative to a car.
    • In the south of the island the first language is modern Greek, whilst in the north it’s Turkish. However, many Cypriots from the south part also speak English, even in rural areas, and sometimes even a little French. So, you won’t have any problems communicating.
    • Since 1974, the island of Cyprus has been divided into two: the northern part, controlled by Turkey, and the southern part, officially the Republic of Cyprus, which is the only part recognised by the international community. It is possible to go from the south part of the island to the north part, but you’ll need to go through checkpoints. Make sure you carry a valid piece of identification with you. If you hire a car, be aware that you’ll need to take out additional insurance to visit the Turkish part of the island.
    • If you hire a car, remember that in Cyprus they drive on the left, as they do in the United Kingdom. Road signs are often translated into English.
    • If you want to buy souvenirs, go to Limassol. The historic centre is full of charm... and handicraft boutiques!
