Well worth a visit but make sure you have a hat and plenty of water!!! Cost 2.50 euro but if it not too hot you could spend a couple of hours on site.

It was hot the day we visited so only had the energy for so much. It was reasonable enough value to enter and it is interesting climbing down to the tombs. My 6 year old enjoyed that aspect. Worth a visit.

Very interesting although requires at least minimal background knowledge. I purchased a booklet at the gate but it turned out pretty useless, in my opinion. It contained little to no history but simple physical description of what i was looking at. As many people comment here, make sure to take water with you and maybe even an umbrella to create... More

a snapshot of our ancient history. Real tombs from 2000-3000 years ago, very close to Paphos. Take water. No shelter so take suitable clothing to prevent sun-burn

I like old stuff like this, so it was fun. Very hot during the day, and it's a big site - so take some drinks - but very interesting, and good value for money.

Tomb of the Kings was only about a 10 min walk from our hotel. It only cost two Euros fifty to get in and is fairly interesting if you like history and archaeology, glad we went and had a look.

I visited as a child on a school trip in 1972, so was amazed at how much more there was now to explore. We arrived at 9am to avoid the mid day heat but I found it almost too hot even at that early hour!

Not what I expected another untouched area, I did think it would be more glamorous, but it is nice to look around. Wear sensible shoes not like me and a lot of other ladies who had open toe flip flops on. This is a stoney area. A small charge to look around but worth it
