Roman, Byzantine, Greek and British influence have all had a bearing on life in Cyprus as well as many others. Today, Cyprus offers an extraordinary blend of east and west and attracts millions of visitors every year. Its historic ties with the UK and the Islandtos friendly, welcoming inhabitants make it a firm favourite with British holiday makers.
Paphos was also the Roman capital of Cyprus and is now listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Only a stone's throw away from the birthplace of Aphrodite, the legendary Goddess of Love, is the village of Pissouri perched on top of a hill with a panoramic view of the bay enclosed by Akrotiri Aspro.
The island's landscape is as varied as its cultural influences, rising from sandy beaches and rugged coves across the central plain and up to the Island's rugged backbone of pine covered mountains. In the winter you can ski on the slopes of Mount Olympus and still be back on the beach by dusk for a relaxing dip.
