Favorite thing: I liked Paphos very much but I recomend visiting some villages. My favorite one is Miliou village, near Polis. There are some nice (and cheap) villas for rent. I stayed at Villa Lemonia. I recomend it!!!Related to:

the mosaics of pafos
Favorite thing: When you arrive in Paphos there are several things you will want to do beside eat your all day breakfast for two pound fifty and drink a pint of ale in a real English pub. I mean you did fly all the way to Cyprus afterall, you may as well see some of the island.
The Mosaics of Pafos are a UNESCO world heritage site and comprise of numerous buildings built over the original foundations of some of the Roman dwellings built in the 3rd & 5th centuries AD. Depicting scenes of Greek mythology they are very intricate floors made of colored stones and glazed tiles. They are considered some of the finest examples in the Eastern Mediterranean, so definately worth a look-see.
Fondest memory: Nearby the Pafos harbor in the same area you will also find the Pafos Odeon, which is a half-shell terraced set of bleachers not unlike those in a colliseum. During the summer they often have musical and theatrical performances. The football pitch looks to be in pretty sad shape, so I doubt you will catch a game while you are there.
Behind the odeon is a lighthouse built a number of centuries (1500 years) after the odeon, which is used for the Old Harbor.
If you need more information about upcoming performances at the odeon you might like to call +357 26 94 02 17. Admission to the Mosaics area is CYP 1.50 per adult.
