Sunny with a cooling breeze - another fine Cyprus day. It's also a "rest" day with time to visit other sites.
We visited Kourion, some 60km distance from Paphos on the south coast. Kourion is one of the significant archaeological sites in Cyprus, strategically located overlooking the Mediterranean, originally settled by the Mycenaeans in the 13th century BC.
Two outstanding features include the reconstructed theatre destroyed by an earthquake (as were many sites in Cyprus) during the fourth century AD. The theatre is now frequently used for cultural events. The House of the Gladiators, which was perhaps a training area, features a well-preserved and stunning floor mosaic depicting gladiators in conflict.
Finished the day with good company enjoying a fine fish meal at a Paphos taverna.
