Visit Paphos - Best of Paphos
The entirety of this Mediterranean city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for it’s immense historical, archaeological and mythical significance. It’s primarily renowned as the birthplace of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite and its citizens are said to be the descendants of Aphrodite and Adonis. Furthermore the city is famed for it’s extremely well preserved ruins from Roman times. Its surroundings are almost spiritual, with miles and miles of sandy beaches, tranquil monasteries in the mountains and a very friendly people. Paphos is divided into two parts, the inner commercial town and the tourist centric Kato Paphos area closer to the sea. The shopping (which is nothing too noteworthy) is more intensive in the commercial half of town. The city does not have much to offer its visitors in terms of cuisine, but one can always venture out to one of the local villages for proper Cypriot food and atmosphere.
