Could spend hours here. How on earth did they build these magnificent catacombs. They are endless. Easy and cheap to reach by bus. Pop into the restaurant opposite the entrance for good quality food and friendly service

Loved the fact you get to wander about the site freely after paying the small fairly priced entry charge. Toilets are on site by the entrance, but bring water - there are no refreshements on site and you will need a drink while you are walking around as there is a reasonable amunt of ground to cover. Well worth a... More

The Lonely Planet says you need at least two hours - you don't. The tombs are interesting (although they are a bit repetitious after a while). While some tombs are quite amazing (e.g., Tomb 3), others are not so extensive and when we visited, access was closed to one. More information about the tombs and the people who created them... More

Extensive site, but short on sign-posting but easy to see all of in one visit. Amazing rock tombs, well worth the clamber down into. Keep children supervised; there are some unfenced drop-off's and steep uneven rock steps into the tombs. Eight tombs to see and read about but there are many more, well worth it with the entrance fee at... More

Visited the Tombs of the Kings during a very hot day on 12th November whilst out in Paphos for a week. It costs 2.5 euros to get in. Wasn't a great deal to see to be fair. Lot of ancient rock style ruin buildings. There are no tombs to be seen as they had obviously been exhumed a long time... More

This place is really good to see but the information boards can be hard to decipher in that what they say is hard to relate to what you see on the ground. If you can relate the information boards to on the boards to the view in front of you the then there is an amazing amount to be seen,... More

Felt like I was wandering through a building site. Nice views of the coast, but not really much else to keep you there.
