this looks like an interesting place, but sadly all the English guides had gone! I got the gist translating from a German guide but missed a lot. The staff in smart uniforms seemed to settle for a quiet life in the heat.... Oh that it could be so much more but the edge was missing, shame. Take water, it was... More

This is very accessible and right next to a KFC - only 2.50 to get in so may be worth a quick visit if you are in the area It is pretty interesting to see these sites but you won't be rocked or amazed by all the views! also it was pretty hot so you won't want to be outside... More

This asite was fascinating, well signposted and easy to access. Take a hat though it gets very hot in the sun. Well worth the trip.

If you can tolerate the heat and dust this is well worth a visit. Extraordinary excavations displaying how the other half lived (died?) and the ingenuity of later civilisations in making use of the stuctures. Great value for money as with all the historical sites around Paphos.

Even Cyprus is one part of Greek culture i must write the true. I wait more from this area. Almost without any popular advertise, only some signs in streets and a big area without any help. The road is very comfused with many cars some moments in the day (specially when the stores close or open...).

stopped here during the bus tour.. bring shoes because its mostly a pile of rocks here. There are some stunning vista's and views. Tombs are somewhat creepy. Worth a look if you're in town but make sure you bring plenty of water!

Worth going just to say you have been there but not a lot of information and not a lot to see really - best view was the sight of the wreck just off the coastline
