Trip Planner: Europe / Cyprus / Paphos District / Paphos / Tombs of the Kings
See Tombs of the Kings, an ancient burial site of Hellenistic and Roman administrative officers and distinguished people, and their families. Just steps from the sea, the site has a typical Eastern Mediterranean feel to it, with small sand dunes, low grass and bushes, and palm trees. Take a self-guided tour among the ruins and enter the atriums carved into natural rock to see niches in the walls that were used for burials. Used between the 3rd century BCE and the 4th century CE, the site features Doric pillars and architectural styles from Alexandria, Delos, Pergamon, and Priene.

Tombs of the Kings reviews
An excellent site, but I’d recommend going here before you go to the main Paphos archaeological site, as this one is smaller. If you only have time for one, go there. If you have more time, this stop.... more

A massive site, where you can clamber around an ancient necropolis like an explorer. Really enjoyed this and would recommend a visit. The site is a bit confusing as to where all the tombs were, but...

A great morning out best done whilst not in the midday sun as its exceptionally hot, with not too much shade. There are a few strategically placed pagodas to shade you for a spot of much but not much else. If you love roaming round historical site with very little to stop you roaming this is a must for you! All the tombs are magical and just stunning to see. Their former inhabitants would have felt very blessed! I would love to know where they are now? Wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water!
This Archaeological site is very big by area and there are lot of tombs. You can have a peaceful walk all around the tombs and you can spend a good 2 to 3 hours if you visit every tomb. I recommend using the qr-codes because you learn way more and know where to look at the ruins. Be prepared that you have to walk a lot and that it may get very hot. I recommend visiting this site as soon as the site is opened for visitors so that you will finish it before noon. The entry fee is 2.5 EUR. There is an option for a guide as well with an extra charge. As there are no shops in or near by , carrying some snacks and water is a must. Overall a good place to visit for history lovers and if you are into ancient things. The toilets and parking outside is free of cost.
