If you are in a hurry, you can get to Old Paramali by driving along the main Paphos-Limassol highway and leaving at Paramali. However, we prefer the more leisurely pace of the coastal road, and that means a drive past the birthplace of Aphrodite.

This wasn't here the last time we drove down this way. Or we didn't notice it, anyway. It's a nice idea. Sort of Make Your Own Picture.
