If you've come to Paphos, you simply must come here. The mosaics are incredible. There are lots of them, and it's incredible to think that they've survived. The House of Dionysus especially is mindblowing. And for €4.50 it's an absolute bargain.

Wear a hat, strong sunscreen and proper shoes - it's hot and the park terrain is a bit rough. Bring cold water too, though there are drinks machines next to the House of Dionysus and a nice cafe outside.

Pro tip: The visitor centre is air-conditioned and has a really interesting film about the site. It's worth cooling off here both before and after seeing the sights.

Very little shade so take water and a hat. The mosaics are among the largest and best and most detailed I have ever seen. All are in situ. Quite astonishing. A must if you like art and history

If you go and see one place in Paphos, this should be it. The mosaics are AMAZING. The rest of the site is not quite as impressive, but the 4.50 entry fee is well worth it for the mosaics alone. It does get hot here - 2 tips:

the visitor centre showing a short film is air conditioned

there is a small hut with vending machines selling water next to the House of Dionysus which was a welcome relief!

If you are even remotely interested in local culture, this place is a must see! A well preserved ever changing Archaeological site that shows beautiful ancient heritage.

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.
