Create an itinerary including Kato Paphos Archaeological Park
A World Heritage Site, Kato Paphos Archaeological Park features monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, including some of the finest mosaics in the Eastern Mediterranean. See remnants of Roman villas and fortresses, some of them with floors made of colorful stone, representing scenes from Greek mythology. Take a walk through the arid lands, over dunes, and among ruins, and look for monuments such as Ancient Odeon--a 2nd-century theater built entirely out of limestone blocks--and Saranta Kolones, which features remnants of a Byzantine castle destroyed in a 1222 earthquake.  Plan to visit Kato Paphos Archaeological Park and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Paphos attractions using our Paphos sightseeing planning app.

  • Great food and very friendly and attentive staff. We came also on Sunday and there there some live music and great atmosphere. 100% recommended! đź‘Ś
  • Some aspects are really nice and enjoyable but what ruined our visit was that they had already closed the house of Dionysus (main mosaics rooms) well before closing time. No one was there nor told us anything at the front when we were buying tickets.
