Much better than expected, interesting history and a great place for spotting wildlife. Take some water as you can cover a large area.

It’s a surprisingly large site which is definitely worth visiting if you’re into history. When you go there during the hot day (like me), take a bottle of water, good shoes (no slippers) and a hat. It would be good to get some printed information (a leaflet) with your entrance ticket. Toilets are available only behind the entrance.

This is a huge area, along the coast in the north of Paphos. No Kings were buried here, in spite of the name, but countless graves can be seen in this necropolis. A lot was damaged over the years, especially when they made a quarry here, but some beautiful and interesting spots remain. The number of graves already visible is... More

About a mile (1600 metres) from the Tomb of the Kings Mall it is an easy walk up the main road to the Tomb Of The Kings itself past the many eateries and bars along the way. The Tombs themselves are intriguing and mysterious with their catacombs and vaults. It is spread over a large area so be prepared to... More

This is a fascinating place and well worth the 2.50 euros entrance fee. As another reviewer said, it’s like being on the set of an Indiana Jones film! You can go down into the tombs, wander along underground passageways, and generally have fun exploring! The entrance is on Tombs of Kings Avenue – a 5 minute ride on the 615... More

Guide book was a literal translation, made no sense. No Kings were buried there!! Very open and exposed area, make sure you take a hat and water. Signposting not that great from the road

Please take water, we had frozen some and as it melted as we walked around and drunk it, we got envious glances off those without any drinks. This is amazing value to get into; 2.50 euros per adult and then walk around for as long as needed. The different tombs are incredible, some are more ornate than others, the access... More

we have been here a few times over the years of visiting Cyprus. It is, to use a cliché, mind blowingly wonderful that there is so much history to see, at close hand. Well worth a visit, go as early as possible, as it gets very very hot.
