Pafos is a combination of many things: a cosmopolitan holiday resort with spectacular countryside nearby, and many fascinating historical sites. The region offers the possibility of enjoying both the sea and the mountains, as well as giving a taste of the island’s cultural heritage with its many archaeological sites.
You can feel the romance in the air as you walk where Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty, once roamed. Swim in the sea by the rocks known as Petra tou Romiou, where she is believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or visit the grotto near Polis where she supposedly bathed. Undoubtedly these are just some of the reasons that make Pafos such a favourite with couples getting married or honeymooning.
