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.
Paphos is the fourth largest urban area in Cyprus. The city itself has about 27,500 inhabitants.
The port city of Paphos is located on the south-west coast of Cyprus.
The region around Paphos is one of the most visited holiday destinations in Cyprus.
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.
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.
