Cyprus Visual Diary – The Road To Limassol

It is time for the third part of my Cyprus Visual Diary (remember I took you to Latchi and to meet the Cyprus cats). I am taking you on the road between Pafos and Limassol, where many historical treasures await. The most breathtaking being the Rock of Aphrodite, which you access through a dark tunnel under the motorway… Only to emerge on the other side blinded by the beautiful sights. Not unlike being born again. Have a look at the photos below and as usual I selected some addresses and there is a foursquare map embedded at the bottom of the post.

Petra tou Romiou, also known as the Rock of Aphrodite is a stack of sea rocks in the Pafos area of Cyprus. According to ancient tradition, Aphrodite, goddess of love and fertility was born from the waves on the site.

Kourion Amphitheatre can hold up to 2000 people and is still used for Summer performances.
