Big area to cover, interesting visually, gets very hot when not inside the burial sites. Could do with a replica of how they actually believed the tombs looked, for reference, as all the tombs have been looted, which leaves a lot to the imagination. Not much information available.

It is an abomination to even attempt to get to this lovely historic site - the road Tomb of Kings is a nightmare and a hazard from one end to the other - permanent works going on that never seem to achieve any progress let alone look like they will ever be finished - a nightmare and serious hazard- we...

Maybe a little artistic license with naming, but an interesting visit. 5 of us (2 under 10) & an evening visit. Kids loved it, adults soon worn out with the steps. Incredible place really. No royalty, but if I had discovered it, I'd be calling it Tomb of the Kings for sure. Do it & take water & decent shoes.

Suitably low priced attraction because there isn't a huge amount to see. Guide book useful and good use of signs around the site to give information about the tombs. Be sure to bring water as there is little shelter from the sun and no cafe on site.

Took my two boys to Tomb of the Kings as they enjoy all types of history. They found it very interesting as you could actually go in to some of the tombs and there is information around to tell you about each bit. I would recommend that you go in the early morning as you are out in the blazing... More

You cant visit paphos without seeing this historical sight. Go early in the morning as it gets very hot by lunchtime and there isn't a lot of shade.

If you are looking for something different to do while on holiday away from the normal sunning yourself on the beach this is a great way to spend a couple of hours to break your day. Very ancient site and fun climbing in and out the tombs! If you have small children with you then please keep them close as... More
