A great experience for all ages, explore underground, overground and inside locations for mosaic flooring in abundance. Spend at least 2 hrs or much longer to see everything available.

Lots of interesting tombs to explore! We spent a good couple of hours here. It's not an attraction for everyone - but the history surrounding it all is fascinating.

A wonderful and special place but without any infrastructure ... Very sad if you are talking to a Heritage Site of the UN. The tombs were hard to find because the prospect of the site did not show the map of the road to them. It is a very big site !

Bear in mind there are quite a lot of steps into the tombs so you need to take care. We never did find the paintings on the north wall of tomb 6! Interesting though but little shade unless you are down in the tombs themselves.

This is a large site with a lot of steps and uneven ground and a café with somewhere, if I had somewhere to sit I would have spent longer there.you need a break to take it all in. When we first arrived in Paphos we walked past the enterance many times thinking it was public toilets.

Excellent value for money - E2.50 and your free to stay as long as you want to. Lovely & peaceful place even if your not really into archaeology.

There's no shad or sitting places and it was absolutely boiling. Take an umbrella with you and lots of water. There are no vending machines or shops to purchase water.

Well worth a visit and costs €4.5 - get the bus from the harbour. Takes about 1 hour to walk around all the tombs.

Dirty and poorly presented and maintained. A bad impression for tourists and visitors to Cyprus. Not recommended.

stayed in Pahos with my partner and um-d and ah-ed about visiting the tombs. Glad we did - was a nice hour or so's trip with some good photo opportunities but I wouldnt go out of my way to visit. Interesting for those who are in to architecture/historical places. Personally not my bag, but my partner loved it.
