Huge site with some fantastic mosaics, some are housed under cover. Some housing still to be constructed, so some of the mosaics outside are covered to protect them from the elements and are not on view.Birdlife on this site great.

An extensive site and the need to take your time to walk from one the well preserved mosaics of the Roman villa complex. Justly a World Heritage Archaeological site but the interior signposting leaves something to be more helpful. The Hellenistic theatre is easily missed being on the south slope of the hill cut into the rock of the hillside.... More

Loved the scenery. Please allow yourselves at least good 2 hours to walk around the park, one of the must see attractions if you are in Paphos

This is another large outdoor site, make sure you are wearing good shoes as there is a lot of walking and lots to see, took about 6 hours to see the lot. The mosaics are mixed of inside and outside areas and and are in perfect condition, in the same park there is a lighthouse, an amphitheatre and the ruins... More

What a place! My partner and I paid €9 (for both of us) to explore this incredible historical site and it was well worth the price! It was very big and enough to explore. We would without a doubt visit again! Definitely a must see!

Within walking distance of the tourist area,the amphitheatre remains in great condition,Sitting on the seats,where ancient greeks sat,and feeling the atmospheric nature of this attraction,is a must see if you visit Paphos.Mosaics are also nearby,discovered by a farmer in 1922,and also well worth a visit.

Lots to see and walk through. The weather was cold and windy but sunny nonetheless so were able to enjoy the day. If visiting in January make sure you are dressed for the weather.

Spread over a vast area, the site comprises ruins and mosaics dating from 2AD. The finest mosaics are found undercover in a vast purpose built viewing hall, with bridged walkways along the original flooring. There are tombs and caves and a spectacular odeon in amazing condition. Most areas are accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs but not all. We spent over... More
