A very interesting place to visit. An ancient Roman archaeological site where you can spend a lot of time looking and reading the narration on the information boards.

This is a great trip. I was staggered by the quality of the mosaics after thousands of years. The site is huge so you need to allow a few hours to go around it (we didn't go to the tombs of the Kings - just too far) but its history is incredible. Frankly, I was disappointed with Paphos as a... More

It is worth visiting the old ruins, but unless you really like walking around in dessert conditions, I would recommend visiting first thing. they do have a couple vending machines selling bottles of water only 50cents

A very exciting day trip. Although scorching hot in the sun worth a visit. Tickets were cheap and service was fast. A peaceful place filled with incredible mosaics and ruins. Lots of interesting facts and information. The mosaics were breathtaking. We went with a family member with a massive phobia of lizards which wasn't fun as there were many scurrying... More

Very hot day - ensure you have water - it is a very exposed site, lots of rocks and bits of very old buildings!

I was so excited to find this was actually open last year as it was still being excavated every time I went to Paphos before. This was the first place I went back to visit when I arrived this year and it's a must see. The mosaics are so intricate and beautiful to look at and in places you are... More

The Archaeological park is located down by the Harbour in Paphos and is quite extensive and hot! Definitely worth a visit for a bit of culture and history especially if you're into old ruins and beautiful well-preserved mosaics. Go in the morning before it gets too hot and bring water. There's very little shade although there are the odd shelter... More

If you're in the area and looking for something to do, then 100% get yourself around this place. It's great to appreciate the history and the era. I'd only go once and wouldn't come here again, but it's definitely worth seeing the once. If you appreciate history and ancient ruins then go, if you don't have that level of appreciation... More
