Paphos is on the westof the island. We stop at Petra Tou Romiou . (Aphrodite's birth place) to take photos. We drive to Paphos to see the Medieval Castle which was built originally as a Byzantine fort to protect the harbour. It was rebuilt by the Lusignans in the 13th century, destroyed by the Venetians and on 16th century rebuilt again by Ottomans. At Paphos harbor we drink our refreshment. We than drive to Panagia Chrysopolitissa church which was built in the 13th century over the ruins of the largest Early Byzantine basilica on the island. Within the compound you can see St. Paul's Pillar, where according to tradition Saint Paul was flogged before the Roman Governor Sergius Paulus was converted to Christianity. The floor of the basilica is covered with colourful mosaics. Ottoman Hamams can also be seen here. The last stop will be at the Tombs of the Kings which spreads to a vast area from 4th century BC. This is a great opportunity if you want to see the west of the island.

A wonderful trip with a great guide. We visited the land of Aphrodite, had lunch at the seashore and generally couldn't have asked for a better experience. AN extraordinary driver and knowledgeable guide.
