We will make a stop at the marketplace and then move on to the beautiful mosaics in the house of Dionysos, which are considered among the finest in the Eastern Mediterranean. Then there are the mysterious vaults and caves, the Tombs of the Kings, the Pillar to which Saint Paul was allegedly tied and whipped which. will follow on this itinerary.
Paphos also contains many catacomb sites dating back to the early Christian period. The most famous is Saint Solomoni Church, originally a Christian catacomb retaining some of its twelfth century frescoes. A sacred tree at the entrance is believed to cure the ailments of those who hang a personal offering on its branches.
To turn to another century altogether, we visit an attractive fishing harbour near the Medieval fort. You will have some time to wander and contemplate the connection between the ancient world and the present as you wander around the old fishing harbour. You will have some free time to shop before you enjoy a lovely lunch.
