Petra Tou Romiou - Paphos Harbor - Paphos Castle -Panagia Chrysopolitissa - Tombs of The Kings
We drive from North Cyprus to South Cyprus. Paphos is on the west. 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.

We had a fabulous tour with Sirin. She worked with us to do all of the things we wanted to do. And, she went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with everything. We are interested in the ancient sites near Paphos, and Sirin took us to as many as possible. We are also interested in fine wine. She took us to a marvelous winery. We wanted to go to a crusader castle and she took us to a beautiful one. She is a lovely person and very well informed. Sirin is an exceptional guide and we loved our trip.
