“Beautiful mosaics!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

There are other big archaeological parks in other countries. This one is specially interesting for its beatiful roman villa mosaics.

“Test the accoustics!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is a superb proof of Roman ingenuity. The site is beautifully preserved as part of the Paphos Archaeological Park, and sits beside the light-house.

If you make this visit - and you really should - be sure to experience the astounding accoustics that make it the ideal venue for live performance. Stand on the paving stone in the performance area that has a hole in it (this is the centre-point) and say something......'great if you can quote a line or two from Homer!

You'll be astonished how your voice resounds in your ears (as if you were wearing headphones) - and anyone sitting in the seats will hear you perfectly. Who needs a microphone?

“The world's best value?”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Having spent many hours and many £s visiting historical sites throughout the world, the Archaelogical Park in Paphos has to be a contender for the the most extraordinary value!

For less than two Euros, you get an entire day's worth of the most breath-taking insights into ancient history, architecture, and life. The site includes several huge Roman villas with astounding mosaic floors, a beautifully preserved amphitheatre (you MUST stand on the flag-stone with a hole in it and say something......the accoustics are extraordinary!), a very early castle, and the neighbouring Tombs of the Kings - a site of several acres in which to explore ancient burial chambers hewn from the solid rock.

I could spend hours writing a full appreciation of every aspect of this astonishingly wonderful site: little wonder that it is a UNICEF World Heritage Site.

On a practical and prosaic level, the site is also superbly managed in terms of its facilities - including toilets and signage.
