On your next trip to Paphos make sure to consider our Paphos car hire services as your main means of personal transportation around the town. This place is considered to be the mythical birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite and is divided in two sections with the upper section of the town being up a hill and representing the commercial center of the place with the lower part of Paphos being where the main archaeological points of interest can be found alongside hotels and tavernas.
The town is served by the small Paphos Airport which can tend to be rather busy however you can employ our Paphos car rental services to have a care of your choice ready for you at the airport at an hour you decide, so you could basically get off the plane and then as soon as possible start driving towards your destination, no wasted time.
Once in town there are a number of attractions that you’ll want to visit starting with the Paphos Achaeological Park where you can visit the House of Dionysos and the House of Theseus both of which are large Roman villas featuring some wonderfully preserved mosaics.
Then there’s the Paphos Fort which can be found at the very tip of the marina, from afar it looks like a squat box but which boasts a very colorful history both as a fort and as a prison. The building you see today was built in 1586 by the Ottoman Turks and was last used for one of those purposes by the British.
Despite its Egyptian sounding name, The Tombs of The Kings doesn’t actually contain the burial place of ancient kings, instead the individuals buried there were high officials and other rich citizens. Visiting the tombs is something definitely special as some of the larger ones were carved into solid rock for the comfort of their inhabitants, unfortunately the tombs were robbed a long while ago but the complex itself is interesting to see.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in Paphos so make sure that you employ our Paphos car hire services in order to enjoy as much of what the town has to offer as possible.
