“Wonderful”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Marvellous archaeological site of various tombs for local aristocracy of ancient times. You gaze in awe at the tombs carved out of the solid rock which you descend into down steps and are able to walk around like a building beneath the surface. Fascinating. It is a large area to explorer not far from the town on the road going North.

“Interesting to look at”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is quite a large site and will take you a while to look around if you look at everything. You can actually go down into the tombs and explore as you please. Fascinating to look at and some great photo opportunities to be had here. It would be nice if more information was laid on though, there is a bit about the time period and the general use, but it would be good if there was more explaining the lay out and the use of the different compartments there are. I wouldn't recommend going during midday as it gets hot walking up and down the steps after a while and there isn't many shady areas in the site. We were able to get the bus there from Paphos Harbor (1 Euro) and the bus stop was right outside the entrance. Well worth a look!

“A must see in Paphos”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Cost just over 3 euros admittance fee. I liked the fact that you are free to roam all over the site, and to go into the tombs themselves.
