Once divided into two geographically-separate areas, Kato (lower) Paphos and Ktima or Pano (upper) Paphos have gradually expanded and joined to form one large town. There are so many historical and archaelogical sites within upper and lower Paphos that UNESCO decided against listing them all separately and simply added the whole town to its World Cultural Heritage List.

Characteristically, however, Kato Paphos and Ktima remain very distinct from each other. Both have their own historic and cultural sites and attractions but Kato Paphos is the beach, harbour and tourist resort, whilst Ktima is the residential, retail and commercial area.

Kato Paphos

Under Roman rule, Kato Paphos was the capital of Cyprus. With the decline of the Roman Empire, the capital moved to and remains at Nicosia. Nowadays, Kato Paphos is the 'Western Cyprus Riviera' and most hotels, bars, nightclubs etc, in the Region are situated along this coastal strip. Many Cypriots, as well as international tourists, choose to spend their holidays here and there can be no better recommendation than local recommendation.

Despite its abundance of bars, restaurants, tavernas, take-aways and UK fast-food chains, Kato remains relatively quiet after-hours. Most establishments close by midnight, by request from the local population, and only the nightclubs and licenced late-night bars continue till the early hours. These tend to be based in the lively, non-residential 'Bar Street' area so are easy to find, or avoid, depending on your point of view.

Charming and picturesque in Kato is the pedestrianised harbour area adjacent to the Byzantine Fort, built to protect the harbour from invaders in times past. From here you can take local cruises and glass-bottom-boat trips, which run several times daily in the long summer season, or just relax and enjoy the view from one of the harbour-side fish restaurants or cafes. Scuba-diving is particularly good in this area and there are many interesting sites and wrecks to explore.

Places of interest/activites in Kato include: The mosaics of Paphos, The Tombs of the Kings, The Medieval Fort, Panayia Chrysopolitissa Church and Byzantine Basilica, Aphrodite Waterpark and Paphos Aquarium


Built on an elevated, rocky escarpment, the central town area of Ktima was perfectly designed to make itself virtually impenetrable from attack. To the casual observer, Ktima seems at first to offer little - it's not particularly pretty and the once thriving market for local produce has been almost completely taken over by shops and stalls targeting the tourist market. However, you will find cafes and tavernas with panoramic views offering more traditional Cypriot food at very low prices, intricately-designed jewellery and silverware, and a variety of local crafts and ceramics. Familiar shops in the area include Next, M&S, Mothercare, Reebok, Mango etc, and there are many smaller boutiques offering designer clothes and footware of high quality at good value for money. Here, as across much of the island, hairstylists, nail technicians, gyms and alternative therapy centres are easy to find and affordably-priced.

Places of interest/activities include: Archealogical museum, Neo-classical architecture, central market, the Hammam and, of course, some serious retail therapy.
