things to do

Kourion, near Episkopi, Limassol, Cyprus: head down the mountains, spotting wild sheep as you go. Although it’s outside the official Paphos region, the ancient site of Kourion is worth the detour. Perched dramatically on a hillside overlooking the sea, this is one of the most important archaeological sites on the island. Its magnificent 2,000-seat amphitheatre is still used for summer productions, maybe you can visit one!
Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, Pano Panagia northeast of Paphos town in the foothills of the Troodos Mountains is this 12th-century monastery, which contains a museum celebrating Byzantine art. The sight is beautiful on its own, but the views over cedar and cypress-covered hillsides makes it even more spectaculair.
Troodos Mountains for a change of scenery, you could always go to the Troodos Mountains for a nice and quit walk. It’s the largest area on the island, with Cyprus’ tallest peak, Mount Olympus perched on it! Start at the foothills near the sleepy old villages and terraces filled with olive groves and vineyards.
