If you are interested in Roman art this is a good place to visit for the wonderful mosaics. also at this time of the year the wild flowers on the site are magnificent are the birds that are also plentiful. On the other side of the road are the ruins of Paphos Basilica with more mosaics and the St Pauls... More

This is an excellent way to spend a few hours, roaming the fairly extensive site of roman ruins, with many of the mosaics from the houses revealed. Very interesting pace to explore some of the history of Cyprus, and reasonable prices for entry, being less than 5 Euros for adults, and 2.25 for concessions.

The best mosaics on the island and the most interesting historic sites around. Worth a few hours, smaller crowds if you get there early. Avoiding the bus tours made it that much better.

Excellent place to visit if you like history or roman artefacts/ruins. Very informative and not expensive. The mosaics are incredible and very well looked after. Take water as very hot but it does have water vending machines halfway round. From the kings road catch the 615 to the harbour and the entrance is off the car park in front of... More

This UNESCO World Heritage site is an absolute must, the very first place to head to when in Cyprus. What amazing mosaics, seldom seen in this quantity and in such a well-preserved manner. The ones in the House of Dionysos are truly exceptional, almost seem like the floors are carpeted. But one should start with the smaller houses first, the... More

Huge site to walk around, didnt realise that it was as big as it is! Take water on a hot day as it takes ages to look around, there are water vending machines on site though. Very interesting, mosaics are beautiful. Only thing is there is only one entrance/exit so to get out is a pain having to walk back... More

This is a great sight of archeological wonders and only 4.50 Euros entry fee, the site is very well laid out with lots to see and explore with lots of knowledge about all the different ruins and mosaics, would certainly recommend a visit while in Paphos.

The archaeological site is next to the Harbour and was 4.50e entry when I went. Most of the best ruins are actually near the entrance, but the place itself is really wonderful to walk about in, like a big nature reserve, lovely scenery, lizards of all sizes, just wonderful for those who love walking and exploring, the mosaics are quite...

Worth spending an hour or so looking at the remains and the mosaics in particular. Very barren. Take water.

Yesterday my partner and I decided to go sightseeing as the weather was not great, as it happened the weather was perfect for such a place. This is set over a large area and had the sun been beating down we would not have enjoyed it as much. It cost 4.50 Euro to enter and was worth it. The history... More
