    Information was very good in different languages and braille. It was well signposted and had a couple of vending machines and toilets throughout the park. A really enjoyable visit. Allow time as it can take time the park is spread of a wide area.

    Well maintained burial site spread over a large area on the outskirts of town. Some of the underground burial chambers are easy to access. Well worth visiting for a couple of hours while in Paphos

    If you can schedule your visit for the sunset time and you will encounter spectacular experience. Also there will be very likely less people.
    The archaeological remains of Kourion important ancient Greek city-state on the southwestern coast of Cyprus. The archaeological site is divided into the 11 parts linked by well maintain paths. Some good signs in English. The first striking structure amphitheater, was built in the 2nd century BC and extended in the 2nd century AD. The theater has been restored, and is now used for open-air musicals and other performances. Interesting is also early Christian Basilica or House of Gladiators both with interesting and well preserved floor mosaics.

    I have took public bus as I come bz car but there is regular service (line 16B from Limassol)
    Open September 16 - April 15, daily: 08.30 – 17:00 / April 16 - September 15, daily: 08:30 – 19:30. Admission €4,50, worth of every cent. The ticket is bought and the boom gate then you park at big parking at small visitor center with toilets

    Came here last week with my son as we were staying within walking distance. What a beautiful little church – the interior was a delight and the surrounding trees layered in colourful ribbons were gorgeous. The view was also stunning and we stayed until sunset. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Nice stretch of harbour that loops around onto a breakwater in order to provide some shelter for the fishing boats and yachts that moor here.
    The castle is situated at one end of the breakwater and the road then loops back and there are ample shops, cafes and restaurants fronting the harbour so the visitor can sit back and watch the world go by.
    day trip boats are also based in the harbour including the glass boated boat as well as larger vessels that take visitors to other beaches and coves.
    The main bus terminal is also situated very close by as is the Kato Archaeological Park with it's amazing and wonderful mosaics.

    The jewel in Paphos' crown, in fact, that should read in the crown of Cyprus! Amazing mosaics that are absolutely stunning!
    The House of Dionysus is located quite near to the entrance of the archaeological park and it is, on it's own, well worth the entrance fee but that is only 2.50 euro per person. The main part of the House is protected in a building which has been purpose built to stop the archaeology from being ravaged further by the elements. once inside the protective building the visitor walks on a raised level and looks down onto the mosaics.
    It is well worth spending some considerable time looking and marvelling at the mosaics and there are explanation boards above each mosaics to explain what they represent and the story they tell.
    There is also a QR code that the visitor can download in order to get an audio guide of the site.

    To reach the sea caves from Ayia Napa is easy by car, bike or by the local bus (101/102) to junction dusty road leading to the sea. When you reach the caves you will be astonished. The 10 meters high cliffs and rock formation crystal clear water make this place stunning. You can jump to the sea, or discover the caves, to climb down the rock to the sea is manageable for general fitness person. There are ropes to support you while walking and discovering the caves or just jump into the sea, swim or snorkel. If you want to spend more time here bring food and drinks with you, during my visit there was small food track to get some drinks and snacks.

    Legend has it that the caves were used by pirates and smugglers of the Mediterranean to hide their treasures and store prohibited goods.

    Saturday 8th October and we walked along the Molos, the Promenade in the City. This palm tree lined walkway which stretches for 1.2 kilometres along the seafront.

    It is flanked by the Sculpture Park on one side and the sea on the other. We did find ourselves popping in and out if the Sculpture Park to look at the sculptures.

    Along the way as well as cafes and restaurants there was a children's playground, public toilets, exercise equipment and a number of water features, not forgetting the juice bar in the shape of an orange

    A number of wooden decked walkways and jetties jut out into the sea which double up as viewing points along the Promenade and out to sea. There are plenty of benches to rest up on or simply sit and watch people passing by.

    At the far end of the Promenade, by the Cultural Wave Sculpture, there are views further down the coast towards Deniz Yolu beach and 28 October Avenue.

    Having walked to the end of the Promenade we crossed over and walked back towards Limassol Marina, along Spyrou Araouzou, the road parallel to Molos. This was rather disappointing as we found it to be all a bit run down and decapitated, when compared with the wonderful Molos.

    We stayed at Salamis Bay Conti Resort Hotel and from here walked along the golden sands to this magical ancient city. Honestly, the absolute best way to see it. On your own with the little leaflet supplied and simply explore - it’s huge best to get off the beaten track and follow the paths to the basilica, olive mill and Roman villa - not to mention the ancient street. Yes, the ‘main’ attraction is fabulous and in itself should not be rushed - we spent the day there. There’s a lovely little restaurant Bedi’s I think just down from the carpark for a delightful lunch break half way through the visit.

    Should not be missed! We visited 3x , first on coach tour then twice from the hotel.

    Built in 1572 and former inn and stable now turned into bustling cafes and shops with good prices for local products. In the middle the courtyard dominates a Islamic chapel, close by less busy similar but smaller structure Kumarcilar Han.
