There are few better places than Paphos for love and romance, the goddess Aphrodite’s birthplace. Whether you’re committing for a lifetime, or reaffirming your love, it provides the perfect backdrop, with some of the most beautiful and romantic locations. And with all-year sunshine practically guaranteed, you are certain to have a day to remember.
The smell of jasmine fills the air and the night cricket’s song accompanies the clinking of champagne glasses. Plan an outdoor wedding ceremony, book the town hall or a medieval chapel for your vows. Drink a toast to your future with one of the oldest wines in the world, part of a 4,000 year old tradition of winemaking on the island. Impress your guests with a lavish banquet of local dishes or international cuisine.
And after the excitement of the day is over, allow yourself to relax and be pampered at one of Paphos’ many top class hotels, or feel closer to nature in an authentic back-to-basics family-run establishment.
And when you’ve had enough of just lazing in the sun, Paphos also offers you history and tradition as well as great places to explore. Imagine you’re a worshipper of Aphrodite as you wander among the ancient ruins of her temple, or admire where she rose from the sea, or the grotto where she took her beauty baths and frolicked with Adonis, her lover. Find inspiration for your dreamhouse in the fabulous mosaic floors of a Roman nobleman’s villa. Think knights in shining armour as you visit medieval castles. Or just explore the unspoilt countryside with its charming villages and slow pace of life or the natural wilderness of spectacular coastlines. Pafos has it all.
