Wasn't all that much to see really there was no king ever buried there at all as it tells you after you have paid to get in but it is a nice walk if nothing else .

Well worth a look if you are at all interested in history and archeology. Excellent value as the money is used to keep uncovering and researching this site.

Tomb of the Kings was the first attraction we visited in Paphos, and even though we had plenty of water, we were unprepared for for how hot and humid the environment would be. However, for 2.50 euros it is definitely worth visiting, you get to see approximately 8 different tombs and the design of some of the tombs is awe... More

We could actually see the location of this interesting historic site from our Elysium Hotel balcony. It was a warm cloudy day, interspersed with intermittent refreshing showers. I hasten to add it was the only rainy day we experienced on this wonderful island. If you are interested in archeological events, then you would enjoy this experience, though, the terrain is...

Have been many years ago, buf had forgotten how large site was. Very readonable entry fee. Only €2.50. Plenty of tombs to see. Be carefull as no safety barriers!

We went here after disembarking the tour bus. We paid 2.50 euros and should have realised at that point that it wasnt going to be anything special. The tombs are not that of Kings but wealthy people of the area, the tombs had all been raided and all that is left is some underground rooms with the holes where the... More

Excellent value at 2.5 euro each. Loved seeing some of the architecture still in place and the detail in the stone work. Huge site and make sure you have good footwear not flip flops like me! Lovely walk round in the sunshine but go early and take plenty to drink.

Very interesting if you're into archaeology. Great place to walk around and enjoy the views. Unfortunately there is little shelter from the sun and not an awful lot of information around. A good way to spend a couple of hours but be careful with what time you plan your trip!

the first thing you will see after you paid and got in is aboard saying that no king was buried there :)..do not be upset though, because there are things to see even without a king name.. the burial places are richly decorated and strange, and you can get some wonderful photos there

Good place to stretch your legs and get a way from the strip for a few hours. interesting plaques throughout the site though a bit more info would be helpful. Don't forget water and look out for the little lizards :)
