“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

An easy local bus ride to get to but very a hot place with little shade (unless you are in the tombs!). Not for those with walking / climbing difficulties but really well worth the visit. cheap entry too.

“Stoney...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

We felt we ought to experience a bit of local culture and that is exactly what we did. Quite interesting, only cost a few euros to get the family in. Agreed very hot but there was shade in the tombs :) Only spent an hour there but that was long enough to look around.

“Really can't leave Paphos without a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Having refuelled with a nice lunch in the harbour after visiting the "old floors" (see my other posts) we headed to the "holes in the ground". This is such an interesting site and it is great the way the tombs get more and more elaborate. Coming down the stairs into some of them are real "Indiana Jones moments". There is nothing in the tombs but c'mon people what did you expect (ref other posts). The kids loved imagining what went into each of the niche's - mum, dad, statues etc. Yes it's hot, but again I am assuming one does a bit of research into what the temperatures will be for the time they book a holiday !

“Fantastic and interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Amazing tombs well worth a visit, but don't do this at midday as there is no shade and it's HOT! The views of the beaches form here are fantastic, and the tombs are amazingly well preserved.
