A lot of things to do in Cyprus. The beautiful island of Cyprus, floating on the eastern Mediterranean, claims to be the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love in Greek mythology. She is said to have emerged from the waves at Petra tou Romiou, a picturesque rock off one of the island's most beautiful stretches of coastline. The name means "The Rock of the Greek," and a frontier guard of Byzantine times supposedly heaved the rock into the sea to keep marauding Saracens at bay.

With such a long history, dating from 8200 BC, the island has a large divertion.

The city of Paphos, named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is called "Playground of the Gods. Here you can become totally immersed in Greek mythology. At the city's Archaeological Park in the Houses of Dioysos, Aeon and Achilles, you'll find ancient and spectacular floor murals depicting scenes from Greek mythology, such as the one showing Hyppolitye heartlessly rejecting a love letter from Phaedre. Love had its ups and downs even way back then! Also nearby are the ruins of the Tombs of the Kings, built between the 3rd century BC and 300 AD. Spread over a large area, these underground tombs date back to the 4th century BC. Carved out of solid rock, the tombs are decorated with Doric pillars. Although it turns out that there are no kings buried here, only high officials, the magnificence of the tombs gave the site its name. Paphos, being a port, has a medieval fort guarding the port. Built in the 13th century AD, it was dismantled by the Venetians in 1570 and rebuilt by the Ottomans when they captured the island in the 16th century. Today the fishing harbor by the fort is lined with with open-air cafes and tavernas serving tempting menus of the day's catch.

Cyprus is proud of its fine wines; you'll see vineyards all over the island. So dedicated are the inhabitants that you might see even black-clad grandmothers out pruning the vines. Visit the Cyprus Wine Museum at Erimi village near Limassol. The village is at the crossroads of the wine routes of Cyprus, close to the prehistoric settlement of Sotira, where the oldest remains of grape seeds have been found. Nearby is Kolossi Castle, a medieval commanderie of the Hospitaller Knights, who gave the name to the island's Commanderia Wine, first produced by them. Enjoy the taste of this sweet red wine at the museum after taking the museum's "journey" through centuries of Cyprus wine history.
