Paphos ranks among the world’s top sport training destinations. The existing high-level infrastructure meets the demands of the most intensive, professional training programmes. The Paphos Airport and the direct flights to European capitals and Middle Eastern cities makes it easily accessible from all parts of the world.
There are many reasons why athletes are drawn to the city where Aphrodite, the Goddess of Beauty, was born. There is the exceptional climate, the range of technologically advanced sports facilities, the high-quality service industry and the short distances between the city, sea and mountains. From training grounds to gyms, from Olympic swimming pools to mountain biking routes, there is everything the modern athlete could ask for.
Cyprus is engrained with history. In fact, the entire town of Paphos, is a designated UNESCO Heritage site. Most of the archeological attractions in the city, which has been inhabited since Neolithic times, are easily accessible. Its glorious Roman mosaics are just a stroll from the bustling harbor and part of a wider archeological park. Just half an hour from the city lies the wild and beautiful Akamas Peninsula at the western tip of the island. Akamas Peninsula is home to Baths of Aphrodite, a shaded natural pool and shower where the goddess beautified herself, according to myth. Ref: CNN Travel
