Be prepared to walk. It took us a good 2-3 hrs to walk the site but the archeological treasures it contain are well worth the effort. Greek and Roman villas with almost the finest mosaics I've ever seen, an ampitheatre which still has its acoustics, an underground early Christian complex and an earthquake ruined medieval castle, the architecture is fantastic.

Much enjoyed the park where it seems every invader has buried their dead in extensive and interesting tombs and other interesting relics.

The Katos Paphos Archaeological Park made for a nice day out. We spend a couple of hours here and had a blast. There are a lot of cool things to see including excellent ocean views, a lighthouse, nice well preserved mosaics, and lots of Roman history. The price is excellent as well as others have mentioned that already.

This could take all day to look around as there is so much to see from houses with fabulous mosaic floors to the amphitheater. You need good shoes and don't go when it is too hot and take a drink with you. Great value for money at 4.50 euros this is a must see.

Spent a fantastic few hours around this site, some of the mosaics were in such great condition, the way that they are preserving the mosaics is fantastic,id suggest some sturdy shoes, ie trainers as unlike me I went in flipflops,lol, and another item is water, take a bottle as so dry and dusty,altogether a really worthwhile morning.

We came upon this World Heritage Site after walking a short way from the bus station in Paphos. It was very spread out, so not a place to go when you've only got half an hour to spend! The wonderful mosaics were a joy to see. They had been excavated, but left in situ, with a building put over them... More

Very well presented site. Very good information. Although having information in braille i think is very niche for a visual feast. In any case, the mosaics are sublime and well worth the visit.

We spent a wonderful morning at this park where they have uncovered some fabulous mosaics and the amazing odeon. I would recommend a bit of research before your visit as there is limited information available once you enter. The entrance fee of 4.5 euros pp was excellent value and the facilities within the park were spotless - really well maintained.
