If you are on holidays in Cyprus, you must visit Paphos Mosaics. It was very interesting to see the Swastika and the Star of David next to each other in total harmony in Paphos Mosaics, Cyprus. Both symbols were worshipped in old days, many people hate the Swastika for the wrong reasons, but actually it is a symbol for prosperity... More

Situated on the harbour front near the castle it can get busy in the car park so be prepared to walk, we visited on Sunday morning in winter and struggled to find a spot Extensive site and good value at 4.50euro but again Very limited information about the site so you don't get to understand its history or significance of...

If you want to see the most amazing Roman mozaic floors in the the world then Paphos archaeological site is the place for you. Situated on the sea front at Paphos Cyprus is a vast site. This is a UNSCO world heritage site for a very good reason. Not only do you have a full Roman city excavated and visable... More

This was a great way to spend some time during the cooler months in Cyprus. Great mosaics and good value at €4.50.

The site as a whole is not as good as the Kourion site,closer to Limassol, but the mosaics here are the most intact. It is worth a visit if you are in the area, although access to the buildings is limited more here too.

This is a very large area right on your doorstep in Paphos. Quite a lot of walking to get round the whole site and little shade in the summer months. There was a vending machine in one of the buildings but no café. There must be much more lying under the top soil waiting to be discovered. A fascinating insight... More

This is an extraordinary place and not to be missed experience. The signage and remnants of Roman houses overlaid over Greek is an excellent. Allow more time than we had.

If you are anywhere within striking distance of Pafos this is a must. There are much bigger archeological parks elsewhere in Cyprus which contain more ruins, though The Pafos park benefits from being comparatively compact and flat. What is so fantastic are all the mosaics. There are so many that the majority are alas, covered in protective stone chippings until... More

Once you find this its a great way to spend a few hours, were comfortable shoes as its mostly rough ground and make sure you take a drink with you in summer. Its really impressive to see how well thing were made when you think if the limited resources they had.

A very impressive display of the old mosaics and ancient living conditions in Cyprus. The amphitheatre has amazing acoustics.
