We were lucky to visit in April when the wildflowers were in bloom which were beautiful, but the main attraction here is to see the mosaics. It's mosaic floors are smaller than the Villa Romana in Sicily, but some of the artistic work is more superb. Definitely worth a visit. Make sure you take your student card - free entrance... More

It is worth visiting for the archaeology and mosaics alone but we were lucky enough to come in April when the spring flowers were in full bloom absolutely amazing ! But that's not all the bird life was fantastic too. Swallows everywhere as well as many other species.

We arrived by car into Paphos and found parking in the enormous seafront landscaped parking lot which was very English in style and most welcome. We were right next to the entrance to the site and went in. It was Good Friday and the weather was superb-we were greeted by fields of wonderful wildflowers with poppies, rapeseed and various other... More

Spent about 2.5 hours exploring the park this morning.The entrance is hard to find- keep walking along the habour side until you get to the mosaics bar. It's hidden behind there.The park itself is very exposed on the headland , but there is shelter from the sun both under trees and man made. There are 3 lots of toilets scattered... More

A visit to this archaeological site is definitely worth every penny @ only €4.50, more amazing and covers a large area inside than look from the front, excavation of house of Theseus and Odysseus and Orion plus amazing views across Paphos.

An amazing site full of brilliant artifacts. Well preserved, maintained and presented covering a large site that is easily accessible . Since the first visit many years ago, the area has improved many fold. The mosaics are impressive all over the site and the walks between areas have spectacular sea views. Spend a few hours wandering the site and don't... More

I could not believe the condition and size of the preserved mosaic tiles from 1700 years ago. Many of the facial representations show detail that seems to come from more recent times. Thank god that pathways have been constructed that will prevent these treasures from being destroyed.
