Paphos Archeological Park has a wealth of history of which the Roman era is most prevalent. Wander through the remains of Roman villas admiring an array of well preserved mosaics in the House of Theseus and House of Dionysos to name but a few.

Really enjoyed visiting here, very very hot so make sure you have fluids with you. The place is magnificent to say how old it is, incredible to think they still put shows on it must be really good, although I think sitting on the steps could be quite uncomfortable.

I'm sure you'd get a lot out of a visit if you're a history buff- the place is a World Heritage Site after all. Trouble was, for us it was a very hot walk around a few ruins with little shade and few facilities. The mosaics are impressive in their own way but - call me a Philistine - once... More

Amazing site! I must admit I didn't think it would be so great, but I was left speechless after I visited it. There are so many well preserved mosaics and ancient walls, you could imagine the antiquity coming to life. You need a good pair of walking shoes, hat, and as much water as you can get if you plan...

you enter this from the Heritage centre by the harbour the mosaics of the houses are amazing and as you wander around the site you find this odeon each of these stones is at least a cubic metre in size. well worth the visit but you will probably want a second day for everything here.

It is possible to spend the whole day here for the cost of a beer. Take food and drink as there is only a small vending machine with a few snacks and drinks. No bins around so please take wrappers/bottles back with you or sit and eat near the centre. It was a truly enjoyable day out with no rushing... More

This is a truly beautiful archaeological site, I would recommend a visit to this park, there is no cafe or restaurant so go prepared on a hot day

Lots of interesting ancient archaeological ruins to marvel at, but go early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the heat of the day has gone down and best carry water.

As a family with both teenagers and a twelve year old, we thought we would visit this site as we'd heard good things. I can certainly say that it didn't disappoint! It's a big site and you'll do a lot of walking so trainers are very advisable! The mosaics are truly amazing given their age! Absolutely fabulous! We also liked... More
