A beautiful view of Roman life in Cyprus. The site itself, but the sea with lovely breezes is very beautiful. A wonderful glimpse into the life of wealthy Romans. The mosaics are wonderfully well preserved with such action and color. The whole site is large and you can just do the mosaics or wander further around the whole site to... More

Travel through Ancient Greek, Roman ruins. Large site needs at least two hours to get the full benefit of a visit. Similar to the Tombs of the Kings which is up the coast about 2 miles. Great for flora and bird life.

Large site, plenty of mosaics. Work still obviously going on. Lovely to just roam around at leisure. Set on the coast, so can walk along from here to the Tombs of the Kings.

Quiet when we visited. Great to see all the archaeological ruins although some of the mosaics were covered with sand I guess yo protect them. Some info about why would have been a useful addition. Only €4.50 per adult.

This is a large site, so wear comfortable shoes and in the summer, be aware that there is little shade. Remember to pick up a free map of the site at the ticket office as this will help you navigate. The outdoor mosaics are mainly covered with sand for protection at the moment, so you won't be able to see... More

Unlike many attractions in Cyprus, this is easy to find. Park at the huge,free car park at the harbour and the entrance is right on the harbour. Do not worry if you arrive near closing time as the exits are turnstiles. The site is enormous, so take water if it is hot. The site would rank 5 stars if it... More

A must to visit when you are at Paphos. The entry fee of €4.50 is good value. We spent 4 hours walking around at our leisure. The Mosaics are well worth the fee, they are some of the best preserved we have ever seen. We had a long rest at the amphitheatre a good sun trap. Take plenty of water... More

A must see when in Pathos. Huge site with plenty of view points with descriptions of the buildings that once stood. The highlight has to be the amazing mosaics both outside and under cover. Well worth the small charge.
