Worth a visit
Aug 2020
Really enjoyed this interesting archaeological site, so much to see. Took a few hours to walk the whole site so go early to avoid the heat of the day.

Follow the paths and you see everything. You can even walk where all those centuries ago feet trod where you walk. An excellent place to visit.

Amazing tourist attraction
Mar 2020 • Couples
The House of Dionysus is amazing. To walk around and see the layout, width of the walls & the stunning details in the mosaics is mesmerising. Just go to the harbour and get a ticket then as you walk round you’ll see the descriptions.

Wow - well worth visiting
Feb 2020 • Family
The time and expense it must have taken to complete the breathtaking mosaic floors back in the third century, is just staggering!! These are so well preserved too!!
This was our second time visiting the site!! The first time was ten years ago and we were lucky enough to see archaeologists uncovering some of the floors!!
This time, visiting in winter months, quite a few of the exposed (outside) mosaics were covered to protect them, but that didn’t detract at all because the most beautiful mosaics are all in permanent housing, so can be viewed whatever the weather!!

Loved the walk around the sight. Good sea views and wild flowers.

House with Lovely Mosaics
Feb 2020 • Family
One of the most interesting places in Paphos Archaeological Park. Many beautiful mosaics protected by the house that resembles old Greek or Roman villas

Take a guide book and binoculars
Feb 2020 • Couples
Overall rather disappointing despite the promise of the build up. The gruff man on the desk informed us that the Dionysus building was closed! The visitor centre was of disappointing standard. The lovely vast site has very little information in the majority of areas. The ongoing work has no information to engage the public. The highlight for me was the abundant wildlife for which binoculars were helpful. I saw birds I'd not seen elsewhere in our week in Cyprus. The flowers too could so easily have been made a more prominent part of provided information. To me the place needs a serious makeover to bring it up to date as a premium visitor attraction.

Was Part Of Our Cruise Bus Tour
Oct 2019
It is about a forty five minute bus tour from our ship but well worth the visit. Gives one a good overview of roman life many centuries ago in a climate controlled building. Pamphlet is available in gfive languages but Russian appears to be the main language spoken here. Beware of a vendotrs trying to sell you things but being a tourist trap thann what can I say here. Admission is part of your bus tour package.
