Tombs Of The Kings - Review
Though not quite as majestic as the necropolis of the pharaohs in Egypt, the tombs here nevertheless have their own gravitas. It’s unfortunate, but most of the artefacts that might have been buried here are long looted, leaving only the solid rock Doric architecture. It’s thought that the walls were once decorated with frescoes and covered in stucco. Stairs lead down into rectangular courts where loved ones would conduct a ceremonial meal on the death anniversaries of those buried here.
Though the tombs were never actually used by royalty, but rather hundreds of aristocrats, an atmosphere of mystery and stillness pervades the air here. This might be due to the prominent Egyptian influence that seems to have gone into the tomb’s construction. Outside the oppressive tomb, there is the wonderful openness of the sea. The place is otherworldly.

Tombs Of The Kings, Paphos Reviews
Extremely interesting. You don't have to be a history buff to be impressed by the scale of this ancient site. How they made this is incredible. Worth a visit. It's a big site so take water (especially in hot weather).
Amazing place, thoroughly enjoyed it. Cost us 10 euros for four adults and 3 kids. As you get further in the tombs get better and more interesting. Bit tricky in places to get down to the tombs - sort of place that in the UK health and safety would stop you from seeing into many of them - just have to be a bit careful with small kids. Well worth a visit.
Excellent place if your interested in tombs.. the tombs weren’t actually of kings more so with well off people. Easy walking all on the level with great views across to the coastline. You’ll need plenty of water in the summer months as it gets very hot as not much cover.
Just scrapped a four star review. The Tomb of kings are essentially holes in the ground where rich people (not kings) were laid to rest. On the plus side this is a cheap day out but, be warned, apart from lots of rocks, there is very little there! The area is vast and there is little shade, no cafe and only a water fountain for refreshments. Having said that, you can explore the tombs and relics up close with no restrictions! If you like archeology and Cypriot history, this is a lovely day out
Super place to visit - brings out the explorer in you! Amazing hidden chambers. Whilst not at all essential, bringing a torch can add to the experience. Well maintained. Toilets on site. Free parking. A quick visit would be an hour, but allow more if you have an 'Indiana Jones' side to you!
