Paphos has a pretty harbour where one can still see the ancient Roman breakwater. Around the harbour are lots of taverns and bars. There are many archaeological remains such as the House of Dionysos which has a fine mosaic floor. There are several old Greek churches, and The Tombs of the Kings, which are ancient burial places, are just outside the town. Sub-aqua diving is available from several companies along the sea front. There are lots and lots of shops in this area I usually let the wife go shopping while I sample the local wine in one of the many bars.
