Discover ancient ruins in Paphos District

Set among wildflower-strewn fields, the Paphos Archaeological Site has been towering over the island since the 4th century BC.

Save your appetite for fried halloumi cheese, creamy hummus and rich eggplant moussaka. Not to mention fresh seafood hauled in from the Mediterranean. While eating out is a treat, local markets make home-cooked meals a tempting option, especially when they're enjoyed from the terrace of a Paphos District vacation rentals villa.
