Hire a car in Paphos
Mezze, mosaics and mountains. How could the birthplace of the Goddess of Love not be a romantic destination?
Paphos is a lovers retreat without even trying. Swirling, teal waters create foamy tides around Aphrodite’s Rock, and perfect sunsets accompany evening dinners. However, there is also an abundance of history and nature to discover in and around the city.
Cyprus is filled with exciting places to drive to. Further round the coast are Egyptian-looking tombs; although the luxury of these ancient structures feels more appropriate for the living. The Troodos Mountains dominate the landscape beyond the city borders, and petite mountain villages surrounded by pine forests are hidden in the hills.
