The timeless Mosaics of Paphos are thought to be some of the most beautiful and impressive remnants inspired from Greek Mythology. The well-preserved mosaics depict scenes taken from Greek Mythology and are believed to date to around 200 – 500 AD. The most impressive are found in Greco-Roman palaces such as the Houses of Orpheus, Dionysos, Theseus and Aion. Even though the mosaics had been buried for over 1500 years, they somehow remained preserved.
The Odeion was and still is the heart and soul of Paphos. Located in the heart of the ancient city-kingdom of Paphos, this Roman amphitheatre was built in the 2nd century and used for theatrical and musical performances.
