Historical adventure on the doorstep at Paphos

Very interesting and well presented archaeological site. It's bigger than you think. Take water and sun cream. the mosaics were amazing - best I've ever seen.

This, like Kourion, just down the coast, is another Roman site set on the coast with amazing views of the sea. A huge area, it takes a good 3+ hours to get around and look at everything, and the mosaics here are some of the best I have ever seen. We didn't find a cafe on the site although there... More

This place is impressive when thinking about the age in which it was constructed and how vast everything was. But on the whole it felt a little lacking. About a quarter of the way round it felt like we were just trying to make the most of our €4.50. Interest faded pretty quickly. We had visited Tomb of the the... More

Set on high, overlooking the rugged coastline and beautiful blue sea, the mosaics on this site are truly wonderful and well worth a visit. Even if some of them are still covered over, there are many to see and the quality of preservation, excavation and display is exemplary! Look at the many greek mythology mosaics in particular, and imagine how... More

what a wonderful place! Access around this park was made easy with a free map of the site. Viewing platforms made it easy to access the mosaics and ancient buildings close enough for photographs to be taken. There were plenty of information boards that explained the history of a particular excavated area. Helenic,Roman and Byzantine periods were covered. The entry... More

We found this place purely by accident by the harbour. It was cheap to get in, and the mosaics & ruins were quite amazing. We were very grateful for the visit & inspired by what we saw

The site is quite big and spread out over a large area. Make sure you visit early morning or mid afternoon to avoid the midday sun. Take a bottle of water as there are vending machines only on this site. Work is also ongoing excavating in some areas but overall an extremely interesting place to visit.

An awe-inspiring place over a vast scale, even on a second visit. Be prepared to walk a lot but you will be rewarded with the amazing excavations that you'll see. Some of the floor mosaics are not covered up so couldn't be seen this year, presumably to protect them but there are plenty still on show. Well worth a visit... More
