“Great Place To Explore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Not been to Paphos for around 10 years or so and amazed at how this site has been developed. Huge area to explore with ruins, mosaics and lots of interesting bits to see. Takes good couple of hours to get around if you see everything or as others have said you can just home in on the mosaics. Well worth a visit if you are in Paphos and being so close to the harbour theres a number of good cafes/bars to have a sit down after your visit. Worth highligghting its also dead cheap !!

“Great way to spend the morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Really enjoyed our morning strolling around Kato Paphos in the cooler morning temperatures. For a very reasonable charge of 3euros 40cents you get entry to this place and its amazing to see how well the mosaics in the roman villas have survived and also how intricate they were in the first place. The site is huge and you really need to make sure you see everything as some of it is quite hidden. We found an excellent underground passage running under one of the structures so look out for that. How riding a horse in blistering heat can get rated above a place of such significant archaelogical importance I will never know - surelt this is no.1 in Paphos.

“Amazing mosaics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This was our second visit, the last a few years ago, and they have improved the visitor center. It is a huge site if you want to explore it all, but the mosaics are the best part and these are easier to get round. There is an interesting little film showing in the visitor center explaining the mosaics which is worth seeing first. Most of the mosaics are undercover and simply amazing, the pictures are so detailed and finely done, and so many. Evidently there are even more but they have been re-covered with sand until they can be protected with a roof. It is definitely worth a visit, but don't forget the sun screen.
