Well there nothing live visiting a bit of a historical site when on holiday and to be dairy it dont get much better than this. I didn't know what to expect from this day out, but this place travels through time. For the small amount u pay, this is a truly spectacular place, from the Romans through the centurys, it's...

The mind boggles as to how many people worked on the mosaics in this world heritage site. The conservation is of the highest standard and no doubt there is more under the ground than above. What a shame that Cyprus doesn't have the people and finance to unearth it all. Don't miss this place at all costs. Breathtaking is a... More

We walked from Paphos along the coastal route past the lighthouse and the castle to visit this park. It's a beautiful walk and has been paved for the Cultural Capital which Paphos has been awarded for 2017. The Kato Archeological site is very large and you can spend several hours here. Students have free entry to all historical sites which... More

We were blown away by this place, it's huge and there is so much to see you could spend the day there. Amazing mosaics and ruins. Would definitely go back, and such a bargain at euros 2.50

The Archaeological Park is really worth to visit. The park is quite big and you need to have at least 2h to see everything. Mosaic at Dionisos house floors are really amaizing. The ruins are beautiful some columns and arches still preserved. The colour of the stones take you back in time. One of the best places to visit in... More

Best visited on a cool day in Summer or during the Winter - it's still warm in December around 20 deg C. There is a free carpark at the harbour right outside the entrance. Some fascinating info about Paphos and its long history.

We came here to get more of the history of Paphos and to see the mosaics that everyone keeps talking about! We spent half a day here as the site is very large and we would come again if we ever came back to Paphos. We came on a very hot day and there were plenty of vending machines that... More

We went to the Tomb of the Kings later afternoon and it was still very hot and this was in October! However we did go round most of the tombs and the children really did enjoy being able to go into the tombs. My children were 5 and 8 and they did enjoy the visit but there is a lot... More

The Mosaics are the reason to visit and they are the best preserved I have seen but the area is lovely for a walk and is along the shore
