Despite having no tombs of kings, this was an interesting archaelogical site, which was cheaper than I expected to enter and was larger than first anticipated. Very interesting!

Wonderfully built tombs from the Hellenic period. It is amazing to think that they were built so long ago. A must for anybody interested in archaeology visiting Cyprus. I have been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Just make sure you bring a sun hat and water as it does get very hot in the summer especially July/August.

Not as good as I expected big change from 1981 when last there They should have left the main tomb as it was in 1981 then people could have seen the one and only tomb as it was then.

This is a massive area to explore, take plenty of water if it is a hot day and be careful to plan your route if you have difficulty walking. I'm not sure how suited this site is for wheelchairs, at times on the rougher ground I wished I was wearing proper hiking boots. Very reasonable entry fee for what should... More

Go underground and find the last resting place of dignitaries from the time of Ptolemy. Carved from solid rock and complete with Doric columns you will be amazed at the House of Dionysos. Beautiful mosaics that show that the love of wine definitely started here in Cyprus. You will think the mosaics were completed only yesterday such is the vibrancy... More

Well worth a visit. The tombs make for an interesting walk, and seemed to stretch quite far and wide. Lots of walking and climbing needed to see the best views from above and below, but definitely worth it. Also some fantastic views out to sea to be had across the site. Value for money-wise, this place was great - it... More

Wander through the graves of the past. Look in awe at the building skills. Touch the stones which are hundreds of years old. Admire the views Well worth a visit and so cheap

This is an amazing place to visit - really makes you think about the past and is very good value but you do need to allow plenty of time and take some water as you will get hot! The only drawback at the moment is the roadworks along Tomb of the Kings Road which seem to be taking forever -... More

Very interesting site, lots to see and beautiful views. Quite a bit of walking on uneven ground, including stone steps
