It may be far too hot to take in all the sights but it would be brilliant to get to walk among lots of history if you are a culture vulture. Visiting places like Kato Paphos Archaeological Park actually costs a fortune but not in this big site with even a very helpful information centre. It can be a hot experience, not much cover from the sun, but very worthwhile with breath taking mosaics and architectural remains. Take plenty of water, take your time and enjoy all the park has to offer. The mosaics are the main attraction obviously but the various ruins all lend to the atmosphere. There are cold drinks machines in the center of the park and its location by the harbor area makes it easy to retreat to a cafe for recovery after hours on a hot day. Alternatively, you may go early before the heat sets in for shaded areas along the way. You cannot live in or visit Cyprus without visiting the Paphos archaeologies. This is where history was made.
Ayios Neophytos Monastery, just like Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery in Cyprus, is well worth the drive up into the hills to spend a hour in the monastery grounds, church and museum. In addition, spectacular views, car park, toilets, shops, and cafes are bound to be a further attraction that lines the serene location top of the hill location. Go into the caves carved into the rocks to see the stunning 12th century remains. The church that is beautiful inside and out is a welcome relief from the heat with lovely flowers everywhere and is a holy place indeed.
