the mosiacs are most interesting. definately worth a visit. The visitor centre explained all about the park before walking about. Inexpensive - only 4.50 to get in. Clena toilets at entrance. It was raining on our visit so glad of the little bus shelters to hide in.

Made it here on a nice sunny day, which definitely makes a difference. It was of interest and more to see that you might think. Only 4.50 euro to enter so worth a visit. There were toilets scattered around and water but it could get hot on this site on a very warm day.

It was very interesting and some of the murals were fascinating. The history of the park was given in good detail and there was lots to see. However, on a normal hot day in Cyprus, it can take the enjoyment away. Take lots of water and an umbrella for shade.

There is so much more to this site than it first seems. We took friends who were visiting Cyprus and at first thought it was a bit expensive but we now know we didn't allow enough time to see it all. 3 hours walking around and we still had not seen everything. The Roman Amphitheatre is amazing to see as... More

I agree with all the great reviews that this park has received. But it needs a lot of work to make it disability friendly. It's a huge site and this will take time.

Atmospheric site on headland. Main reason for visiting was to view mosaics but the best site was closed for renovation. Could only look at what I'd missed in the visitors centre film show. E4.50 when main place of interest is closed is a bit much

This is a breath taking archaeological site with several large excavations of Roman villas with brilliant mosaics. There is also a market square, amphitheater and the remains of a basilica. We made several visits because there is so much to see. In February the flowers are an added delight especially the wild cyclamen. Any birders will also be delighted with... More
