“Interesting Experience”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Loved this place, the setting is amazing perched high overlooking the sea. The whole place is very atmospheric and the museum is well laid out and thoroughly informative. There are some amazing relics and artifacts with lots of great information about the historic site and Aphrodite. The cobbled ramp up to the museum can be difficult to climb/descend in sandals/flip flops. Worth the entry fee and would definitely go back again.

“Thoroughly interesting historical site.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Thoroughly interesting. This site has the advantage of small plaques dotted around to inform you of what you are currently looking at. There is also a small museum situated in the restored medieval manor house with many artefacts from various digs. Underfoot is a little rocky so wear good footwear. There's also a cobbled ramp in the courtyard that leads to the artefacts which would be tricky for pushchairs or wheelchairs. WC is at the opposite end to the entrance so bear it in mind when planning your route around the site. Parking isn't directly outside the site entrance but is just a short walk and is sign posted, and its free! Worth the €3.40 each in.

“Great History”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Excellent site of ancient history. A must-see for Kouklia visit. Well preserved, and worth a visit even for the Aphrodite mosaic alone.
