Traffic Information

Unlike most of Europe, driving in Paphos and Cyprus is on the left-hand side, making it feel comfortably familiar for visitors from the United Kingdom. As a popular tourist destination, the Summer months of July and August are always busy while roads become congested during morning and evening rush hours at any time of the year.

Parking is very relaxed on Paphos. If there is a space and it is not going to create problems for other road users it is generally alright to park. Defined parking areas are very often free of charge.

Paphos is a small town with a huge amount of history. Wherever you drive you will never be far from fascinating archaeological remains. This landscape of ancient tombs, fortresses and palaces led to the whole of Paphos being designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the Archaeological Park near the harbour, you can admire the beautiful mosaic floors of four Roman villas along with the Forty Columns Fortress and the Tombs of the Kings. Carved out of solid rock these tombs were the final resting places for the town's richest citizens. The area in and around Paphos is home to numerous stunning beaches that are ideal for swimming, diving and snorkelling all year round. Just a few minutes drive North West of Paphos is Tala Village. This pretty village of traditional houses is a popular dining destination as well as home to the Agios Neophytos Monastery. If you like a more active holiday, the countryside around Paphos is ideal for hiking and cycling.

Tombs of the Kings, Pahpos, Cyprus

Sixt Tip

The oldest in the world

The Commandaria wine of Paphos lays claim to being the oldest wine in the world that is still in production. This richly flavoured dessert wine was originally thought to have been the creation of the Knights Templar in the 13th century but recent archaeological finds in the Paphos area have suggested it might date from over 5,000 years ago. Richard the Lionheart of England was so taken with the wine he brought it back from a crusade and served it at his wedding. As you explore the area around Paphos you will see vine covered hills growing the Mavro and Xynisteri grapes used in Commandaria and small independent wineries still producing it.

Sightseeing Destinations

The unspoilt Akamas Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty, perfect for a relaxing day out in the fresh air. The peninsula is dotted with deep gorges and surrounded by sandy bays.
