Fantastic archaeological site, worth the cheap entry. Well preserved mosaics and ruins, very interesting. Wear a hot and take drink with you as vast ground to explore and can be scorching hot. Amphitheatre and a lighthouse very interesting place.

This place is amazing but there are massive caveats. In August its just way too hot no matter the time of day. We started at 8:30 and were melting by 9. There is a lot to see but my word there is an insufficient amount of information about what you are looking at. We knew it was old but couldn't... More

We visited the park on an August morning and although it was around 11am, it was still very hot. The park itself is an open site of ancient ruins and uncovered Roman houses, with some great examples of mosaic floors. There are some good places for photo opportunities including the stone pillars and the high point close to the lighthouse,... More

This is a large archaeological park, which is only accessed from the Paphos harbour area. Inside it are various area of archaeological remains: to the north is the option of walking on the remains of the Roman city defences and explore more of the rockcut tombs/catacombs. In the centre is the lighthouse with some of the best views of the... More

We spent an hour at the park in August which was too hot really but well worth it. We spent the time looking at all the amazing mosaics and structures of old villas - didn't make it as far as the amphitheatre which was a shame but the mid-day heat got the better of us. This park would be worth... More

My friends wanted to visit here so I tagged along,it costs around 4€ pp to enter. It ended up being a really interesting afternoon,they have clear signs on each room ,on the ruins so you can just imagine what the houses used to be like. It was really hot and dusty ,so take lots of water with you-although you can... More

The entry price is so reasonable it's worth paying just to see the mosics, which are very interesting. The rest of the site is very historic and well worth the extra time spent but if you have teenagers in tow, just the mosaics are worth the visit. Very hot in July/August but still a well worth while visit.

Lots to see. I wasn't expecting anything so big here in paphos. Try to go when it is a bit cooler or take lots of water with you! It is a bit of a shame you can't see everything on the other side of the park as it isn't very accessible.

Great value, we went twice! Some truly amazing mosaics and significant and extensive structures of old villas - which you get to experience very close up. Take a sunhat and plenty of water, although there is a vending machine place towards the middle (water 50cents a go - also v reasonable).

My word it is hot here in August. Very hot. Even at 4pm it was a struggle. But worth it - an incredible amount of history that gets your imagination going. Which is just as well as there's not a whole lot of information on what your looking at. If you're coming to pafos particularly to see this site then... More
