Discover the theater, the mosaics and the mythology of Aphrodite..


Discover with me the archeological wonders of Cyprus!

We will visit together Kourion, an important ancient city-state, to admire its Greco-Roman theatre and the beautiful mosaic floors that survived for centuries.
Driving west we will discover the wonderful legendary birthplace of the Goddess of Love and Beauty: Aphrodite's rock. . .
Paphos Archaeological Park is inscribed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO for its outstanding ancient remains! Let's admire the unique mosaics of Dionysos and take a look at the pillar of Saint Paul as well as the catacombs. Also we will see the ruins of the largest Basilica in Cyprus.
Next, you will have the chance to enjoy a break at the little fishing harbor and, if you like the idea, a delicious lunch in a local restaurant.
