Amazing exposed foundations and mosaics. You really get an impression of the size of these buildings, built 2300 years ago. I've knocked off a point because it costs €4.50 entry, and it really wans't very well signposted considering how big a site it is, so you end up missing stuff.

Unbelievable how these fantastic mosaics have survived from the 2nd century AD. Not to be missed at any price and the site is easy accessible.

this was yet another great place to visit, good shoes and lots of water before you go on site and a camera is a must even if you buy the great site magazine at the entrance.

This place it amazing! The mosaics are breathtaking, the site is huge, you could spend more than a day here. The downside is there is hardly any interpretation boards or information on the site so it's guess work as to what most of the uncovered buildings are.

Visited as part of the visit to the whole site and the mosaics are incredible with so much colour still remaining in all the intricate work. Definitely worth a visit but need a few hours to appreciate everything fully

If you want to see preserved mosaics at their finest, visit this enclosed site. Absolutely beautiful.

This building covers some of the most beautiful mosaics, we have seen, and is part of the Paphos Archaeological park.The cost for the entrance to the park in September 14, was 4.5 Euros each and well worth.Just remember to visit either early in the morning or after 5 pm, as the site has very little shade during the heat of...

Just came back from a holiday in Paphos, Cyprus. We visited this attraction and really enjoyed it. So much history and incredible well maintained. If you like a bit of culture, history and mythology, this is a great place to visit.

It is part of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, which means admission fee of 4.50€. Worth visiting though, to see really old mosaics of hunters, tigers, boars, drunk Greeks and stories of seduction and mythology.
