Good place to visit to pass some time
Sep 2021
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.

Exceeded Expectations
Aug 2021 • Couples
I was not sure what to expect from Tomb of the Kings, but was pleasantly surprised. We only stayed and hour because it was too hot out to keep walking around, but could have stayed for 2 to see everything. The site is expansive with lots of ruins and tombs to wander through. There was not a clear map to follow so I am sure we missed some sites, but do not miss Tomb 3 and 4. They are amazing and you can walk into a lot of the underground tombs to explore! Just try and go first thing in the morning because the heat makes it difficult to enjoy fully.

Humid stroll through interesting tombs
Sep 2021
Worth the visit. Go early or later in the day to avoid the heat and heavy humidity which can be hefty. The site is larger than expected and the views of the sea are a welcome contrast to the burrowed tombs. Plan to walk around, up and down into the excavations. And to sweat a bit. Visitors have created a separate attraction of stacked stones that are impressive on their own mainly because there are so many of them.

We visited in August, bring water as its very hot. One can appreciate these as they are Hellenistic. A must see when in Paphos.

Hot and Dusty.

Great place to visit for a few hours. No evidence of any kings but lots of Tombs to see and the sea views are splendid. Take water in with you.

Awesome experience
Aug 2021
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.

Well worth a visit.
Aug 2021 • Couples
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.

Beautiful abd interesting place without route path.
Aug 2021 • Couples
The place itself seems quite interesting and there are quite a few tombs to see. The issue that I see here is that they did not provide us with a route to follow since we kept wandering in circles and we did not really see much of what it was offering. I would say give it a go if you go to Paphos since it is worth it but plan your route beforehand since the people at the entrance are also quite unfriendly.

Tombs with a View
Jul 2021
I visited the Tomb of the Kings during late July at around lunch time with my family. In general, we found looking around the tombs and the site interesting and quite impressive and where set in an idyllic and peaceful seafront location. However, I thought there was a lack of information and signage about the tombs to give you more information about what you were actually looking at. Although there was a guidebook that we purchased there was no map in it so it was difficult to match up the information within the guidebook to what was actually in front of us. Some advice is that it is probably better either in the morning or evening as when we arrived (after a long walk from our hotel) it was really hot and the site is exposed which makes it even hotter. The Tomb of the Kings was extremely great value as it was only 2 euros 50 for adults and children entered for free. Overall, I’m not sure I would recommend it as it was difficult to know what each of the archaeological areas were and where they pulled the tombs out of. Also, some of the locals recommended a historical site nearer the harbour.
