This is a wonderful site to visit. Lots of walking but the mosaics are truly stunning and in wonderful condition. Spend an hour or 4 hours at this site and it is so cheap you can go twice!

We drove from Lefkosia to Paphos with the main goal being to see the archaeological park. The mosaics are spectacular and the organisation of the exhibit it good. It's a shame that so many remain covered (although at present, this is essential to protect them until they can be housed appropriately). I've seen many mosaics and these are incredible in... More

You really have top pace yourself and allow a half day plus for this experience. the extent of the numerous Villas is mind blowing. It puts the UK Roman remains into the shepherd hut size. The completeness and detail in the mosaics is astounding. At 4.5 Euros each its certainly good value. Take plenty of fluids around with you if... More

Some of the best Roman mosaics in the world make this place a must to visit. It's cheap as chips - only 2.25Euros for OAPs. However it's a long walk round especially if it's a hot day so take water

Nice big area of archaeological interest, close by the harbour. Worth a visit. Entrance price was €4.50 each and was well worth paying.

Quite interesting and has a few good photo opertunities and was in our opinion worth a visit to pass a few hours. Don't book this with a tour guide as its very cheap admission and if you can get here under your own steam you will save a fortune.

There is so much to see in here. Ok, the ruins do not rise much above floor level - mostly, apart from the Asklepeion, the Odeion and the fort - but the mosaics have to be the main reason to come here. They absolutely make the whole visit. So many individual scenes were so beautifully represented it;s hard to believe.... More

A vast site, with more still to be excavated, that offers something new around every corner. A small amphitheatre is enchanting, but the BIG attraction is the huge range of well-preserved floor mosaics. I have never seen so many, nor so well preserved, all in one small area. A real delight is that there are so many mosaics that they... More
