My partner wasn't sure about visiting this but we both had a fab time. Free to wander and explore with many subterranean tombs to climb down into and then through. The view over the Med was great and at €2.50 admission per person you just couldn't be robbed.

you need to like old ruins, but to me once you have seen one you have seen them all and like all tourist visits they have to make money

I visited Cyprus in the 80's when I was serving in there I had a week in Paphos so it was nice to re visit this antiquities site! it is so fascinating to see how people lived & how they lived all those years ago. The site is well worth a visit

This is an impressive site, but the name is very misleading. It's a tomb used by privileged and rich citizens of the area and NOT Kings. Despite that, it has some interesting History and artefacts that includes very good example of Roman mosaic tile floors. Information boards is the only history available and definitely undersells this value. Very reasonable entrance... More

Went over xmas and had a few hours wondering around this site, was interesting but I wouldn't call it amazing, need strength and stamina of a mountain goat climbing in and out of the tombs,lol, its definitely worth a visit but far better places in paphos, take good shoes as not for flipflops.

This is quite a big site and if you roam round the whole site it can take quite a few hours we went in December but would imagine it would be very hard work in the middle of summer as there is no cafe. You need flat shoes and it is not for the infirm, however it is very interesting... More

Decided to make a trip to see this "attraction". What a waste of a morning. All I saw was rocks cut out with holes in them meant to be tombs. And you are told that were are no Kings buried here so a very misleading title "Tombs of the Kings". Don't waste a day of your holiday, better off shopping... More

It was quite interesting and worth a look. Quite easy to walk around and go inside the tombs and it was surprising how many there were.

It's much more pleasant to wander around the ruins and mosaics on a cooler December day than in the height of summer. With information in English and Greek you can find out about the Roman way of life, Greek history and some of the mythology from the island's history.
