“Beutiful Archaelogical Park”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The Mosaics are stunning as is the setting. Easy to get to as right behind Paphos Harbour. less than 2 euro's. Wear comfy walking shoes as ground a bit uneven at points and give yourself a couple of hours to do the full site. If you are there in the hot summer months be aware there is little shade so go early morning/later afternoon, lotion up and take an umbrella for some shelter out the sun.

“Ensure its open before visiting”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Thankfully we got here as the zumba class using the rooms beneath were just finishing and were able to have 5 minutes to look around before they left and had to close the gates. We were expecting something a little older (or more like ruins) but that's our fault for not doing our research properly.
The site it's self is well maintained and has a wonderful view over the valley. We were informed the site is normally only open when there is something on at the amphitheatre so it would be worth checking for that first. We did visit out of season so that's something else to consider.

“Exploring the past”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had a good time looking at the ruins and the mosaic floors. We were not rushed at could take as long as we liked within the area.
