We have heard so much about this area and decided to go. Amazed at how huge the area was. Fantastic setting and the breeze off the sea helped. Half way round the is a hut which has vending machines. ..just what we needed. Why don't we see more of these in tourist areas. ..not expensive either. Allow half a day... More

A great way to see some proper history. The mosaics tell their own stories and have been kept on the whole very well. Our toddler loved running around the ruins so overall a good morning out for all.

Give yourself plenty of time explore the whole site, worth wearing sturdy shoes, and also make sure you have a bottle of water with you as the site is spread over a large area so be prepared to walk a fair distance. The world famous mosaics are really stunning. In the House of Dionysus you view them from wooden walkways... More

Wonderful mosaics, amphitheatre, etc. and good views of the lighthouse, all very interesting and accessible IF you can find your way around as signposting was a bit 'thin'. Would have been happy to pay double the entrance fee!

Superb site full of roman ruins, mosaics and historical buildings. Right on the seafront on a headland. Good loos on site ( a real bonus given the usual state of Cypriot loos!!!)

Lots of interesting things to see and some beautiful views as well, we'll worth a visit especially as it's only a few quid to get in. Lots of information boards and plenty to see.

The mosaics are the main attraction but the ruins themselves are impressive. There are also good views of the lighthouse and the coastal path. Some of the mosaics have been covered up to protect them. Understandable but they need to be displayed. The internal signposting is not always clear - I am still not sure whether we managed to see...

Spent an afternoon here and there is plenty to see and go for the paltry entrance fee. The mosaics especially are stunning and you can actually clamber around many of the ruins rather than have to look at them behind a rope. There is not much shelter or shade so on a hot day I would recommend a hat and... More

It's easy to forget these mosaics are 2000 years old. The artistry is amazing. The site it's is quite big and does not have a cafe only vending machines. Go early in the day to miss the coach tours and take water. There are 2 sets of toilets. Another bonus is the bird life. An introductory video in the visitor... More
