Visited Paphos Archiology Park near the harbour 611 bus from the hotel or walk next to the Deal Bar by the Alexander the Great hotel and walk along the coastline for half an hour.
€5 each to get in from memory.
It's got a map with finds all numbered and you go into a building with a screen presentation explaining the site and the remarkable finds etc.
They mosaic floors that have survived are remarkable.
Some building a had signs and information and others didn't in the heat of the day the map stopped making sense.
If only they put numbers on boards next to the archiology to match the map it would be easier to navigate.
Overall a lot of interesting history, a good morning out.
Don't get sunburnt it's very open and there is little places to go to take shelter.
Staff again a bit disinterested and no guides etc.

Over the years, this headland by the harbourside has gradually been excavated and is still turning up treasures, including most impressively mosaics. It is quite a big site and can be quite exposed, so carry water with you. There is a drinks station, but machines were not working at the time we arrived. The adjacent building holds the real treasures with lots of mosaics. Plenty to see around as you walk towards the lighthouse is the amphitheatre, and a bit further the castle. Costs less than 5 euros so well worth a look.

I am not a great history person so the Archaeological Park was a bit of a loss to me, there is hardly any information boards telling you what you are looking at and apart from the House of Dionysus it was wasted on me.

We visited this stunning park in the early evening which was such a beautiful time to visit with the low golden sun in September. The park is fascinating and such good value for money for only €4.50. The mosaics in particular are incredible - so clear they almost look like rugs. Another stand out site is the odeon, which used to be a viewing area for the theatre. The park is lovely to walk around and I would recommend allowing 2-3 hours so you can see and absorb everything. The one thing you sadly cannot control is your fellow visitors, one of whom ‘celebrated’ the mosaics which are centuries old by taking a Skype call and shouting loudly to someone for about 10 minutes. That woman’s total ignorance and rudeness were thankfully just one (very annoying) blot on what was an all round incredible visit. Definitely recommend a visit here.
