Very interesting area but was told there were no kings buried there just citizens. One of the places the hop on / off bus stops and an hour is just about the right time to spend there

We had a fabulous day out at this very interesting place. We absolutely loved it. If you have mobility problems I would suggest you only look, but if you're agile, you can actually duck down and go into the caves and tombs. Well worth a visit if you can squeeze it in, and only 2.5 euros each.

The entrance fee was very cheap, only 2 euros 50 when we went and there was easily enough to see there to take up a whole afternoon. It was a very interesting place to visit and wasn't too busy. One thing that it does need is more signposts to lead you to the bigger tombs as they are spread over... More

indeed this is the second archeological site of the pahos area. for an average tourist this rocks don't speak for themselves. but knowing a bit of their history, it surely is worth visiting. take 2 hours minimum

This place just shaded it for me over the Kato Paphos Mosaics, again not a lot of info available on the site, my advice google it and read about it prior to going, it will help with your imagination when walking round. You can get the 615 from the Paphos Harbour Bus station which stops outside the Tombs.

The holes in the ground[tombs[ were not for Kings as advertised,have been on more interesting building sites.Did not find it interesting in anyway shape or form.It was like they had started a project and ran out of funds as the entrance road and area is still under construction,If i had gone on a coach trip,would have requested a refund

We were impressed by the tombs. Depth and complexity of the excavation just amazing. Also a mere 2.50 entrance. There are toliets but no refreshments so take water as it gets very hot and there isn't any shade.

Great location by sea- the breeze was very welcome. Interesting enough but lost a bit of interest once I knew it wasn't a place for royalty- having been to Egypt. Glad it didn't cost too much.

We visited first thing in the morning as we came in August so wanted to avoid the midday heat. Aside from any temperature benefits, it was a great time to visit as we practically had the place to ourselves. It was fascinating to see the tombs and the site itself is really pretty. The entry fee is only a couple... More

Decided to have a lazy Sunday afternoon walking about the tomb of the kings. Whilst it would not keep a young family entertained it is a nice relaxing few hours just walking about and looking at the tombs and explanations. There is enough to see and whilst there is a bit of a lack of information for a snell entrance... More
