On a 45-minute guided tour of the site, visit a Greco-Roman theater formerly used to host gladiator tournaments and the House of Eustolios, replete with well-preserved mosaics and baths.
Proceed to the town of Paphos, where you’ll have 2.5 hours to purchase lunch in a local restaurant and visit the House of Dionysos, famed for its mosaics. A guided tour of the site is available for around $6.
Then, on the journey back from Paphos, you’ll stop at Yeroskipou village to sample Cypriot delicacies such as Cyprus delight, similar to Turkish delight. See, too, the alleged birthplace of Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and love, in Petra tou Romiou and hear of ancient Greek legends.
Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Ayia Napa hotel.
