From the birthplace of Aphrodite, where she reputedly rose from the waves
to the Tombs of the Kings, a complex of rock cut tombs dating back as far
as the 3rd century BC just on the edge of Paphos, Cyprus has an amazing array
of historical sites, which are just a short drive from many of our Cyprus villas.
Pictured above is the amazing Roman amphitheatre at Curium, just outside
Limassol on the Paphos side, where performances are still often put on. On
the same site there are some tremendous mosaics and other Roman excavations.
Visit the castle at Kolossi, just outside Limassol, and imagine you are a
Knight of St John on your way to the Crusades, or visit one of the fascinating
monasteries around the island.
Or take a walk near Polis to visit the Baths of Aphrodite where according
to legend the goddess used to take her beauty baths in the pool of a natural
grotto, shaded by a fig tree.
Nearer still, in the harbour at Paphos are
some amazing mosaics (designated a World Heritage Site) and a small amphitheatre,
which again is still used for performances.
Just a few suggestions - there are many more places of interest.
