ARound 5 euros each to get in, located next to Harbour. Amazing mozaics and ampitheatre to be seen, people can wander around for as long as they want, good info at hand to orientate and understand historical relevance, is a hot place, so take water!! no cafe. Went back this year again as we still find it fascinating.

We enjoyed our visit but all the sites within the park were spaced a distance apart and it was not easy to decide the route from one site to another. There were no maps available and we took a wrong turn to find the exit which meant a long detour in the hot sun to find our way back

This is quite a large site that has some fascinating ruins and excellent mosaics. It does lack decent sign-posting though. The information boards at the exhibits were good but it would be helpful to have similar ones around the site generally. Some better sign-posting and a few 'You are here' boards would also help visitors to get the most out... More

As you enter the park you find yourself in some ancient times. You explore the remains of the houses, mosaics, castles.

Well restored mosaic floors with a lot more to come. Not a massive site but well worth seeing if you are interested in Roman ruins.

A must when in Paphos, the mosaics are absolutely stunning and a the ability of the artists just incredible. A steal at the entrance costs and with more to be explored by the archeologists it will only become more and more amazing.

Very large site best visited earlier on and with plenty of water. Excellent mosaics and excavated areas. Certainly worth a visit if you like to see this kind of site

Hot and dust with little information on any of the exhibits, would be more interesting if a map and guide was available

Superb mosaics in excellent condition - entrance very reasonably priced. Very easy to find. Ideally would have liked a water fountain on route.

Very interesting and reasonably priced at 4.50 euros. We spent an interesting couple of hours there. Be aware though that it is very hot and not a great deal of shade. The signposting could be better as we were looking for some areas that we could not find (nor could others). We gave up on that and we asked as... More
