Around Pissouri

The motorway has brought Pissouri closer to the larger cities and resorts of Limassol and Paphos, Pissouri is about a 30 minute drive away from either Paphos (Pafos) or Limassol (Lemesos) for those who want to see more urban life than Pissouri can offer.

Fasouri Watermania 

Lots of water fun with kiddie pool for the little ones to safely splasharound.

Nominated in top 3 of Europe's leading water parks. Shuttle buses run from the Paphos tourist area to and from the park.

Aphrodites Rock

Aphrodite Rock, located off the shore along the main road to Paphos is, according to legend, the place where Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love was born. The beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters make the site a popular spot.

Tombs of the Kings 

A large necropolis lying a little over a mile (two kilometres) north-west of Paphos harbour in Cyprus. The underground tombs, many of which date back to the 4th century BCE, are carved out of the solid rock, and are thought to have been the burial sites of Paphitic aristocrats and high officials up to the third century CE (the name comes from the magnificence of the tombs; no kings

were in fact buried here). Some of the tombs feature Doric columns and frescoed walls. Archaeological excavations are still being carried out at the site. The tombs are cut into the native rock, and at times imitated the houses of the living.

The Kourion

Looking out over the Mediterranean from its cliff top, Kourion is the most spectacularly located ancient site in Cyprus. First settled by the fierce Mycenaeans, the city reached its apogee in Roman times, as evidenced by remnants of the empire such as its great stadium, theatre and lavish public baths. As in many of Cyprus's greatest ancient cities, the cults of Aphrodite and Apollo thrived here, and both of

these Hellenistic deities have shrines here. Wandering through Kourion's ruins, it is not hard to imagine the city as it must once have been: one of the jewels of Rome's eastern possessions, until its destruction by an earthquake in 365 AD
