A fascinating journey of discovery awaits on this excursion to the west of Cyprus where you can explore a wealth of Greco-Roman, Hellenic and Byzantine antiquities and visit the popular and historically important town of Paphos.
The first stop of the day is a short coffee break close to Choroikoitia Neolithic site then on to the impressive amphitheatre of ancient Kourion. Perched on a clifftop with endless views over the Mediterranean this was once one of the most important cities in Cyprus. It was destroyed by an earthquake in the late fourth century and this ancient city kingdom is now one of the most fascinating archaeological sites on the island. Observe the stunning mosaics at the House of Dionysos and the cleverly engineered Roman bath house at the House of Eustolios.
The next stop is Paphos, where the entire city is a UNESCO heritage site. As well as the treasures of the sprawling archaeological park, there is a medieval fort at the picturesque harbour. We have free time here to explore the well preserved remains of ancient communities, their mosaics, tombs of the kings and religious sites, or choose to relax with a meal or drinks at a harbourside taverna.
Leaving Paphos we continue back along the coast to the village of Yeroskipou. Home of the Cyprus Delights, or 'Loukoumia' we can sample some of these sweet treats and pick up a souvenir or two.
The final stop of the day is the legendary Aphrodite's Rock - Petra Tou Romiou. This rock is said to be where the goddess Aphrodite rose from the waves and offers a stunning seascape. Take those all important photo's or take a swim. Legend has it that eternal youth may be granted to those who swim around the rock three times.
