Located on the southwestern tip of Cyprus, Paphos has many different archaeological sights and it is renowned as the birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. The town is situated between the coast and the Troodos Mountains and it has grown in recent years as a tourist destination.

There is also a commercial center to the city as well as a newly built "promenade" that travels from the marina along a long coastal path. This route offers excellent views, especially during the morning or evening hours when the sun is low.

Saint-Tropez

Saint-Tropez is a town in southern France west of Nice, in the Var department of the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region. Saint-Tropez is located on the French Riviera. It was a military stronghold and a fishing village until the beginning of the 20th century. It was the first town on this coast to be liberated during World War II (as part of Operation Dragoon). After the war, it became an internationally known seaside resort, renowned principally because of the influx of artists of the French New Wave in cinema and the Ye-ye movement in music. It later became a resort for the European and American holiday and a goal for tourists in search of a little Provencal authenticity and an occasional celebrity sighting.
