Top 3 Things To Do in Paphos, Cyprus

I am so proud of my heritage. Half-British, half-Cypriot, I am blessed to be the child of two magnificent islands. Whilst England is the home of my everyday life, to quote Sappho's Hymn to Aphrodite, I am beyond lucky to be able to call Cyprus my golden house, my summer abode, my romantic sojourn. And every facet of Cypriot culture helps carve its status as the Jewel of the Mediterranean.

Paphos is located on the Southwest corner and was selected as the European Capital of Culture in 2017, making it a magical getaway...

Tomb of the Kings

The necropolis known as the Tomb of the Kings, dating back to the 4th Century BC, lies in Paphos. With the sunlight pouring through the open ceilings and shimmering against the sea, one is given the opportunity to reflect on the richness and beauty which is both given to us by nature, and also embellished by mankind.

Kato Paphos Archaeological Park

Similar ruins and villas are to be discovered when one wanders to the nearby Archaeological Park in Paphos by the harbour. It is easy to be dazzled by the mosaics of our ancestors and humbled by the thought that one is in the House of the beloved wine god Dionysos.

Petra tou Romiou

Personally, I cannot imagine a more fulfilling way to leave my beautiful island than jetting away after a day of pure Utopian bliss in Petra tou Romiou, more famously known as the Rock of Aphrodite. The sea is never so clear, the sun so hot, or the spirit more awake than when one is submerged in the sanctuary which birthed the goddess of love.
