The airport of Paphos (Διεθνής Αερολιμένας Πάφου) is located 6.5 kilometres northeast of the city centre and is accessible by bus.
Getting around Paphos
You can get around Paphos using the city’s extensive bus network. Fares start at 1.50€ and minimum taxi fare costs 3.64€.
Paphos’s modern part is divided in two; Paphos or Ktima and Kato Paphos.
Ktima is the area stretching at the mountainous side of the city and it’s the primary commercial and economic centre. Kato Paphos includes the area around the port, is excessively developed, with large hotels, resorts and many nightlife choices; it is also the home of most of Paphos’s archaeological sites.
You can explore both regions easily on foot, or you can take the bus.
Highlights of Kato Paphos include:
- The Medieval Fortress
- Paphos Archaeological Park
- The Tombs of the Kings
Kato Paphos’s idyllic port centres on the charming Medieval Fortress of Paphos, what remains of the Lusignan Castle built in the 13th century and rebuilt 3 centuries after by the Ottomans.
This is where you can find a wide range of archaeological sites, markets and interesting items from antiquity. Don’t miss the roman mansions, with the extremely well-preserved frescoes and mosaics.
Though not actually royal, these tombs and crypts certainly are impressive. They are said to belong to the aristocracy of New Paphos and they date back to the 3th BC – 3th AD centuries.
They were named “Royal”, due to the resemblance they bear to the Egyptian model of a tomb.
Heading to Ktima and after you have done your shopping at the city’s central market, you could visit the Byzantine Museum of Paphos, where precious collections of Byzantine icons and religious paraphernalia await you.
A few kilometres outside the city centre, the “Aphrodite’s Rock” or “Petra tou Romiou” (The Stone of the Greek) dominates the background, as a beautiful site and an interesting and legendary geological formation.
According to Greek mythology, this is the point where Aphrodite emerged from the sea. Other legends identify it as the rock thrown by legendary frontier-guard of the Byzantine era, Digenis Acritas, defending his position from the Saracens.
Paphos’s official languages are Greek and Turkish, but English, French, German and Russian are widely spoken too.
