Paphos

Brimming with archaeological and mythological fascination, Paphos is a treasure trove waiting to be explored. A morning tour commences in the Geroskipou village, famous for its sweet local delicacy known as 'Geroskipou loukoumi', whose staple ingredient of sugar is a tantalising treat. Discover the striking five domes of Agia Paraskevi Byzantine Church, a unique construction dating back to the 9th century and a sublime example of Byzantine architecture, before returning to Paphos to visit the breath-taking ancient monuments of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park. Overlooking the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea and astonishingly dating back to the prehistoric era, witness the world-famous mosaic floor, richly decorated with mythological and hunting scenes within the House of Dionysos, before ending your morning tour with a visit to St Pauls' Pillar and early Christian Basilica. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure to explore Paphos at your own pace.

Paphos

Today begins with a visit to the village of Omodos, renowned for its pretty narrow alleyways and colourful houses, stopping en route at Petra tou Romiou, an amazing geological formation of huge rocks, where, according to legend, Aphrodite was born. Embark on a short tour, commencing at the Monastery of the Holy Cross, which remarkably conceals a rare remnant believed to have been the cross upon which Jesus was crucified. Established in around 330AD, this Greek Orthodox Monastery is one of the oldest of its kind in the world. Whilst in Cyprus's principle wine growing region, take a leisurely stroll to discover the village's medieval wine press nearby, before pausing for lunch. Later, continue to the Cypriot Village of Mandria to taste the refreshing flavours of herbal tea, brewed with locally produced 'Castellanos' herbs, and finally, your last stop today will be at the rustic village of Platres; enjoy a wine tasting at the Lambouri winery, famously renowned for its Xynisteri and Chardonnay grapes, before returning to your hotel for a leisurely evening.
