A must see if you are staying in Paphos. Really interesting site with some fantastically preserved tombs. 2 and 3 the best of the bunch. Try to there early to avoid the heat, but more importantly other people if you want photos without team selfie in them!

Plan about two hours for the visit. Some great views out to sea as well. Only 2.50 entry fee, a bargain, but I think they are underselling themselves. The site has no cafe, vending, or even basic information on what you are seeing or how to navigate. I’d suggest they increase the price and spend 100 euros on a few signs, would make all the difference. Mind you, in the U.K it would be a National trust site and £15 per person and £10 to park, plus handrails galore so maybe this is the better way?

I took a short walk from my hotel to this site, although plenty of parking is available and bus stop outside. I visited late Saturday morning and my 2 hours visit was good value for the 2:50 euros entry fee. Guidebook is an extra 4 euros. Very little shade so recommend taking a good sized bottle of water. Very interesting place to visit if you are in to historical sites. Possible to access many of the tombs by steps. Not sure what I was expecting on arrival, but I had a pleasant visit. It did not take my breath away, but well worth a visit for the small entrance fee.

This is really both an interesting and extraordinary location. My wife and I visited it in early December and we had the whole place to ourselves yet the weather was incredibly warm. It was fascinating to walk around and see the many many different tombs and the work that had gone into them. The entrance fee was only €2.5 each so well worth a visit

First a tip. This is a huge necropolis and visiting it during the hottest part of the day sucks all your energy. Although there are eight tombs highlighted, I stupidly tried to look at every tomb until I was exhausted. Lesson learnt - go during the coolest part of the day and visit the major eight tombs first.

Apart from my stupidity - the archaeological site is stunning, making the €2.50 entrance fee a joke.

A must see.

After reading other reviews we decided we would pay this site a visit. We entered the attraction around about 4:00 pm after walking from our apartments around 24 minutes walk away. It was still hot.

The entrace price was €2.50 and a guide book €4.00. This is one of those places that you can wander around and explore at your leisure but after and hour and a half it was still getting better and better.

I would suggest that anyone visiting starts with tombs 3 and 4 because we ran out of time before we'd seen everything as it closes at 5:30pm in the winter months.

I visited with my husband, sister and brother in law and two young nephews in mid-October, it was VERY hot! It is great value at only 2.50euros for adults and the children were free.

We used this as a day out to catch up and we all enjoyed walking round the various ruins, clambering in and out of chambers and enjoying the views. There are so many different ruins and tombs - I am sure we didn't get round them all. The heat meant we called it a day earlier than planned but we did get round a lot of the site.

There are information stands dotted around but it could do with more as there tends to be more than once entrance to each section and if you get the wrong one, there's no information stand but this is only a minor point.

It is a really interesting place to visit and definitely worth coming too when visiting Paphos.

What an amazing place. We walked up to the site from our hotel which was around 40 minutes, it was just unfortunate it was way to hot so we didn't spend as much time as I would have liked here. For 2.50 euro each its worth every penny even the 6 year old enjoyed it. Might not be a good p,ace to go if you have reduced mobility as obviously being an ancient site it's uneven, and climbing down the steps to go into some of the ruins even I couldn't do. If I ever go back to Paphos I will make sure it's a cooler type of year so I can spend more time here and visit someof the other ancient ruins.

Really enjoyed our visit here and you definitely get your money's worth at only €2.50 to enter. You can enter, touch, climb and view the tombs with little restriction.

Be aware: there is scarcely any shade, so be sure to plan your visit wisely in the summer months so that you avoid the burning heat of the day. Also, the signs are extremely worn and consequently hard to read; it is a shame that the entrance fee isn't higher so that the site could be upgraded and maintained better.

Also, despite the name, no kings are buried are buried here at all; it's a classic case of exaggerated marketing by Cyprus to make things sound attractive (Coral Bay: no coral, Blue Lagoon: a bay, Paphos Castle: a small fort; Aphrodite's Baths: a smelly cave with pigeons and poo!)

All in all, it is a must see.

We had the benefit of having the site to ourselves. Some of the tombs can only really be seen when you are quite close to them. In total there are nine teams spread over a wide area and one of them looks like Saint Georges Chapel in Lalibella in Ethiopia. Although the site goes down to the beach it is fenced off however I can’t imagine many of the bikini clad tourists visiting the site itself during the summer. The site is very exposed and best to see first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening. The entry fee was €2.50. All they caught the terms of the kings there is no evidence of any other teams had any royal connection. The recommended visit time is two hours and we spent over two hours cutting a fair price therefore worth allocating at least three hours.

the site had lack of directions and the visitors were clueless about how to view the site, The area is extensive and without any signage or guidance, it seems we are just roaming around without much understanding of what the buildings are. a map of the site on entrance would have been good. The entry fees is very very nominal and the bus stops right in front of the venue. It's a bit tedious but its a must visit to experience the historical times.
