Your Base - Hotels in Paphos

Once the ancient Greek and Roman capital of Cyprus, and now a UNESCO-World Heritage site, Paphos is a pretty port where modern amenities provide holiday creature comforts without diluting the wonder of the upper town's historic sites. Bars and restaurants line the picturesque harbour front, while palm-fringed boulevards and flower-decked courtyards radiate charm and conviviality.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly from the UK to Cyprus, and upon arrival meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your Paphos hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to rest, relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Day Two

An included half-day guided tour of Paphos, conducted by a local guide, will bring to life this fascinating place, including the extraordinary 'Tombs of the Kings' burial site, the famous Paphos Mosaics housed in ancient Roman villas, and the Byzantine Church of Ayia Paraskevi. There will also be an entertaining stop to see how 'Loukoumi' - the Greek Cypriot version of 'Turkish' Delight - is made, and after the tour you may wish to visit one of the excellent museums that bring added insight to this historic settlement.

Day Three

Today's second included tour heads into the truly spectacular Troodos Mountains, which rise above the plains and the coast, which have been home for centuries to remote villages and religious communities, and are the site of several wonderfully decorated Byzantine churches, tucked away in the forested slopes. The tour calls first at the wine-producing village of Omodos, with its white stone houses and ancient
monastery, before winding its way through the pines to Troodos village itself. Other highlights of a memorable day will include ancient Kykkos Monastery, famed for its mosaics and frescoes, and its Byzantine Museum, Throni Park, burial place of Archbishop Makarios, Cyprus' first president, and Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, with its important icons.

Day Four

Join today's optional excursion and journey beyond the political divide of the 'Green Line' into Northern Cyprus, occupied by Turkey since 1974, and a stunningly beautiful region of mountains dotted with ancient villages, leading down to a tranquil coastline. The day will include visits to the Gothic Bellapais Abbey, made famous by author Lawrence Durrell, and to the coastal port-town of Kyrenia, with its picture-book harbour and castle.

Day Five

Today is free for rest and relaxation in your chosen hotel and its surroundings. The harbour-front bustles with life, while the Old Town of Klitma, on its rocky plateau, is a colourful alternative. There is so much to do in and around Paphos, with sights to see, shops to discover, and even nearby golf courses to tempt the energetic.

Day Six

The highlight of today's last fascinating included excursion will be the visit to historic Nicosia, island capital for more than 12 centuries. Divided in 1974 by the 'Green Line'
separating Greek and Turkish Cypriot territories, the city is both a modern, bustling metropolis, with tree-lined boulevards and a sophisticated cafe culture, and a fascinating gateway to the island's turbulent past. Enroute, you'll call at the important pre-historic site of Choirokoitia, and the day will be completed with a visit to the picture-book village of Pano Lefkara, with its narrow streets and white-washed houses.

Day Seven

A second optional excursion offers the opportunity to step back once again into Cyprus' fascinating past, on a full-day tour that includes a visit to the magnificent
2nd-century B.C. Greco-Roman amphitheatre at Kourion - passing the fabled 'Aphrodite's Rock' en route, where the goddess is said to have risen from the waves - as well as taking in the extraordinary mosaics of the 'House of Eustolios'. Other highlights of the day will include a traditional Cypriot lunch and a visit to colourful Limassol's old town and the picturesque village of Lania.

Day Eight

Bid farewell to Paphos and the hotel, and transfer to the airport for the return flight.

We had a very good holiday. Budget hotel ( Agapinor) in Old Paphos away from the busy main hotel area was peaceful and fine for us. Enjoyed the included excursions which were well organised. We walked a lot in the beautiful sunshine, swam in the pool and off the beach at Coral Bay. Local buses frequent and very reasonable. Easy jet were excellent but flight changes meant early morning arrival 00.45 at Bristol Airport, not something we would have chosen.
