Pafos - Paphos Resort
Every summer at the old harbour the Paphos Aphrodite Festival presents a classic opera. Just outside the walls of the Medieval Fort, music lovers experience three days of the love, passion and tragedy of the opera under the stars.
Previous productions here have included perennial favourites Aida, Carmen, Toscaand Rigoletto.
There are subtitles both in English and Greek, and organisers advise light jackets and shawls as the sea breeze can get a little chilly towards the end of the performance.

What to See...
The whole town of Paphos is included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world heritage. Wherever one treads in Paphos one comes across its glorious history which dates back thousands of years, when the cult of goddess Aphrodite who emerged from its seas, flourished in this beautiful part of the world attracting many visitors from inland and abroad.
Today it is a growing harbour town, but in Hellenistic and Roman times it was the capital of Cyprus. Still under the spell of her Beauty-goddess, the area retaining her magic has remained intact by time. It seduces its visitors with its majestic landscape, lovely coastline, historical treasures and delightful villages where tradition is still a way of life. Kept in harmony with nature are divine mediaeval monasteries, which lie peacefully in the Paphos heartland.
