“Definitely worth your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Visited with family in September. Spent a couple of hours walking around enjoying the mosaics, the Odeon, the lighthouse and active archaeological sites. Even early in the day it gets really hot and there is no shade so bring a couple of bottles of water. Restrooms are at the entrance. The map isn't great but take one anyway. The mosaics were breath taking and you can take pictures of just about everything.

“unbelievable good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

For less than 4 Euros to can spend a whole day walking round the ruins of a pre-Roman town. Lots of mosaics to see, and a whole host of other things of historical interest

“Must see attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Everybody visits the mosaics on this large site and they really are worth a visit, but remember there are other things to see. This is a big site but at the small cost of 3.40 euros you can afford more than one visit. You have the old remaining walls of the city state of Paphos with the one remaining intact entrance, the Odeon and lighthouse. Don't forget the castle of Saranta Kolones tucked away in the corner of the site. This is worth a visit on its own. If you only visit one site in the area then this is the one.
Don't believe the myth that circulates that this attraction is free on a Sunday. This is a myth, you pay the same as any other day!

“Good Value (5 euros for 2)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Very good value for money and a lot of freedom to walk around at your own pace. Some more explanations of what was what would have been nice.
