One of Europe’s top-rated waterparks, Fasouri offers attractions for the whole family, including obstacle courses, multiple slides, and paddle boats.

Tombs Of The Kings
Located in the city of Paphos, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to a network of underground tunnels leading to the tombs of wealthy families. These tombs are believed to have been used since the 4th century B.C., making them some of the oldest remains of ancient Cypriot civilization.
Built by Venetians in the 16th century, this fortress in Northern Cyprus was later occupied by the Ottomans. Included in this castle is a shipwreck museum and a chapel dedicated to St. George.
