Before going here I would read up and google this place it will help you understand what your looking at, there is not an over abundance of information available on site. It cost 4.50euro to get in, it is set out over a very large area, take plenty of water, sensible shoes and sun hat.

Large site steeped in history with incredibly well preserved mosaics. Well worth a couple of hours if you are in Paphos.

Of great interest to me--go early it gets hot. Mosaics were especially good. Parking is easy & cold drinks available on site.

A very impressive chapel with gold/platinum chandeliers and wonderful mosaics and icons.One icon in particular, apparently crafted by a Saint was the focus of hundreds of pilgrims daily..this could be a bit overwhelming.

Run your imagination . It will be great. In the summer you need - water , sunglasses, cap , and about 1-1,5h. Good price for a ticket (only 4,5E).
