This is a huge site and I have never seen so many mosaics and of good quality before, the remains are massive and across a large area, very historic, my only recommendation would be for them to creat a definitive route and some shelters as it gets very hot in the sun. Perhaps good for a cooler day or late... More

The archaeological site of paphos is accessible for an entry fee of just 4.5 euro. The interesting site has mosaics made between 300 bc and 300ad. The mosaics can be found in the houses of aion, theseus and especially the house of dionysos. It also has a odeon and forum from around that time that are worth a visit. It... More

This site is vast and is wonderful to walk around, you try to imagine how the people lived. The mosaics are fantastic. It can take 2 or 3 hours to walk round, so make sure you take water and use plenty of sunscreen.

The site is by the harbour and is an interesting place to spend a couple of hours.There is a very reasonable entrance fee and a simple map of the ruins but it can be very hot and dusty.

Its amazing that in the middle of this tourist resort town there is this stunning archaeological site. The place is huge and there is loads to see. It's just great to be in surrounded by stuff from the classical Greek and Roman eras from between 3000 and 1000 years ago. There are little signs around telling you what things are... More

I really enjoyed my walk around and my grandchildren were fascinated with the history. Don't forget to take water with you as on the day it was very hot walking around and make sure young ones are well covered from the sun.

This park encompasses a large area, but other than the amphitheater and one temple containing a large collection of well preserved mosaics, it is mostly just ruins. It needs a lot more excavation.

worth to see, but rather in the afternoon when the sun is not as hot. We liked the beatiful mosaics, created thousands years ago by precise work of then artists. They look as up-to-date as they were created now, the faces, expressions, eyes, decorations...

The Paphos Archaeological Park is perhaps the highlight of our visit to Cyprus, it is made of several different areas which have their own pieces of historical artefacts such as mosaics, paintings and buildings. It will take a few hours to see everything this park has to offer as it is a very large area to explore. It is definitely... More
