The amphitheatre is a must to visit as it is great condition considering the age that it is. The way that it was built considering the tools that they had years ago is breathtaking. Sitting in it makes you really think about what it like in they days.

this an amazing piece of historical architecture. the amount of history is awesome, as is the acoustic engineering they were capable of.

right on our doorstep in a fabulous location. Stunning setting. Usually great music and not too expensive. Could increase the toilet facilities as there is only one ladies loo!

Loved the whole experience and the fact that you can see from wherever you sit and have a drink while enjoying the show

Worth a short hike to find this place. quite amazing examples of rock dwellings and good general archaeology. There is no charge to visit, and it's not too far from the harbour area. Make sure you go inside the rock dwellings for best appreciation of the place.

part of Paphos Archaeological Park. A largely reconstructed Odeon or theatre (not an amphitheatre which would be round like the colosseum) used for music productions. Nice to see but nothing much original about it. Avoid the middle of the day as it is staggeringly hot with no shade in sight.

Most of your writers seem to have confused the totally rebuilt Odeion in the Archaeological Park with an amphitheatre. There is a huge difference. The rebuilding of the Odeion detracts from this otherwise interesting site, though the revenue from concerts may help to preserve it. Your more few persistent, and knowledgeable, writers rightly left the side of the Park via... More

The fully restored amphitheatre is rather small but is nevertheless quite interesting. The surrounding area continues to be investigated but is not inspiring at the moment. More explanatory information would be helpful as many people were confused.
