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.
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.
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.
We are on the road in Cyprus by rental car. For our first tour we have chosen the Troodos mountains.
