If you're the sort of person who wants their weekend break destination to pack a lot of punches, then Paphos might be right up your street. Where else than in Cyprus would you find a city bursting with culture, Roman ruins, great restaurants, and lovely beaches? Get your culture fix at the Tombs of the Kings dating back to the 4th century or at the town’s famous Roman mosaics. Wander on through the streets of the old whitewashed part of town, browsing through souvenir shops and bargaining with friendly merchants. The Cypriot way of life is laid back, so embrace the relaxation and while away the hours in the sunshine, working your way through a traditional Greek meze dinner as the sun sets. Paphos is a perfect town for strolling, with seafront promenades and even a medieval castle to explore. Thrill seekers can head a little further along the coast to Limassol, where the waterpark has enough slides and rides to keep anyone happy and refreshed on a hot Cypriot weekend break.
