We liked that we got a map of the ruins when we bought our tickets. It was easy to figure out what we were looking at, and the descriptions at the sites were great as well. We think some of the outdoor mosaics were covered up, but there were still a lot to see inside the buildings. It was pleasant... More

This is a fantastic place to wander around looking at Romania villas and amazing mosaics. We spent a good 3 hours seeing most of the site. We had lunch at King's cafe just outside the entrance on the harbour side.

This has got to be on everyone's list to visit. Took well over 3 hours to visit it all, House of Dionysus is covered, the mosaics are just truly magnificent, entry costs 2.50 euros and is extremely good value

If you want to be able to clamber about on ancient ruins with hardly any restrictions as to where you can go, then this is the place for you. The area is vast and contains incredibly well preserved houses and the surrounding buildings. You can get right up close to the ruins which help to bring it all to life.... More

This was good value for money and interesting, bit windy and fresh at this time of year. Would recommend it, allow lots of time and wear sturdy shoes

We have seen some stunning Roman sites both in the UK and abroad - Pompeii and Herculaneum being particular highlights but the mosaics on this site top them all. They are simply stunning. The site itself is situated at the end of the old harbour in Paphos. There are buses that run here, and boats and there is a large... More

Go there on a sunny day as there is so much ground to cover and a lot of walking to be done. It is a lovely unspoilt spot whch hasnt been overly restored so that you get a sense of it being part of the landscape and not the other way round. Reasonably priced entrance fees. Enjoy!

Living near some great Romania mosaics in the UK I wasn't sure what I'd see at Paphos, but the detail and level of preservation on these was incredible. On the whole the site was easy to navigate and there was enough information, but it would have been great to have at least photos on display of those mosaics currently covered... More

No leaflet guide, just very odd map - difficult to work out, no idea what was where. Quite a lot of walking, but amazing mosaics.

Beautiful part of the coast near the harbour. Good selection of mosaics and ancient house remains from 1500 years ago. Good value at 4.50 Euros so worth spending time here when in Paphos
