Well worth a visit reasonably priced like a lot of historical sites in Cyprus some stunning mosaics most areas unrestricted access the site is spread over a large area so go prepared very little shade so hats are a good idea there is a small place with vending machines to get cold drinks but little else .

This was very reasonably priced for the amount on show. We were there in spring and the wild flowers were amazing. Not great when pushing a buggy as the ground is very uneven in places but really worth the effort. It would be a shame to visit Paphos and not visit this sight.

Like many of the archaeology site in Paphos, it is very interesting but there are not enough direction signs and it is definitely not wheelchair friendly.

The House of Dionysus is one of the areas of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park that showcases mosaics under the protective roof and they are on display all year round. It is a great place to get familiar with the detailed art work of the ancient craft and polish up on the stories of Roman mythology.

Fascinating how they made such beautiful artwork that has lasted so long, and survived so much. Good place to visit to pass the time and see how people lived centuries ago.

A must see. Lots of mosaics, well preserved. The house is also covered so you can get our of the heat and sun for a little time.

The mosaics housed inside the buildings on the huge world heritage site were stunning and well worth a visit. not so good outside was the fact that most of the mosaics were covered with sand probably to protect them from the elements.

Part of the Kato Paphos archeological park, The House of Dionysus alone is worth the entry fee, which is slightly more expensive than the other parks but still only €4.50. The entire house is enclosed in a protective building with walkways all around allowing you a perfect view of some of the finest mosaics I have ever seen. Superb artwork... More
