Went early in the morning in November. Had the place to ourselves. Agree with others - poorly signposted. However, pretty cool place! Enjoyed playing around in the tombs and tunnels. Took some neat pictures, with the sun coming in at odd angles into the tombs. Cheap attraction - 2.50 Euro.

Have been here twice - most recently last week. It is a truly remarkable place - all the more surprising bearing in mind it is one of the less inspiring parts of Paphos. The tombs are very impressive and not a little eerie. Would recommend avoiding a visit in the heat of the day though. Also - note that it... More

We arrived a little late to really sample everything on this site, but nevertheless saw some very interesting tombs. It is kind of spooky especially close to dusk, and a much bigger site than I expected. This is certainly worth visiting if you are in the area, though the road outside is undergoing construction so can be a little tricky... More

A big sight so plenty of places to explore and get away from crowds when they are about and still see interesting things.

The 'Tombs of the Kings', in Paphos, date back to the 4th century BC, and are carved out of the solid rock. They are not actually kings' tombs, but are the tombs of important people and officials who lived at that time. There is also an extensive gallery of huge mozaics, some of which are still undergoing restoration. There are... More

I visited the Tombs of the Kings a few years ago and enjoyed seeing the architecture that went into some of the tombs. a lot of them are very similar, but there are a few that are truly worth going to see. the site is immense, so don't go if you are afraid of walking, and the tombs are not...

There is so much to see spread over quite a distance so take your time and if it is a hot day take water with you. I'm sure if Cyprus had the money or could find a rich benefactor so much more could be found.

Really glad I visited this place but there was precious little info on site about the history of the place. Almost all the tombs are badly damaged by quarrying on the site - many of them now standing high above current ground level as the stone has been removed from around them! If only we could go into the tombs... More
