Near the port of Paphos is the main entrance to a remarkable excavation site. The Paphos Archaeological Park is a cultural highlight for me during our trip to Cyprus.
Cyprus is the third largest island in the Eastern Mediterranean, geographically part of the Middle East. Politically, the Republic of Cyprus is a part of Europe through its membership of the EU. This is why I am listing the island in the Europe section.
During our research on Cyprus we repeatedly came across pictures of a gorge on the internet. It was clear that the Avakas Gorge belonged on our to-do list for the stay in Cyprus.
We made another tour by car and drove towards the north-western coast of the island. On the way we visited some smaller destinations, of which I would like to introduce only a few places here.
Not far from our hotel was one of the most famous excavation sites in Cyprus. The King’s tombs of Paphos attract visitors from all over the island and have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1980.
1318 meters high in the mountains of the Marathasa Valley is our last destination of our discovery tour in the Troodos Mountains in Cyprus. Here is the Kykkos Monastery, one of the most beautiful monasteries in Cyprus.
Our hotel was located in Paphos, a city in the west of Cyprus. This location proved to be ideal, as some of the most interesting sights are located in the Paphos region.
We have made several trips into and around the city and I would like to introduce some interesting, curious and also beautiful points.
