Very close to the accomodations. The Tombs of the Kings is a large necropolis lying about two kilometres north of Paphos harbour in Cyprus. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Great for familes all children love to go exploring, take plenty of water with you this site has very little shade unless you are in the tombs themselves.

A spooky area along the coast road, this is a UNESCO World heritage site that has to be seen, don't go at midday in the summer, it's hot!!!

The Tombs of the Kings are a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site, dating from ancient times and easily accessible within Paphos.

a wonderful collection of ancient burial tombs. The entrance fee is low and well worth a visit if you like historic sites that offer something different. The sea views are beautiful from the Tombs.

Busy area with plenty of shops and bars, plus can go down to the Lighthouse and Beach Bar, also look around the architectural sites.

This is most definitely a must when visiting Cyprus.
Experience the culture and last resting places of Kings, stroll around huge tombs, indulge your self in raw history.
Once again a stones throw from Regina Gardens.

Interesting, deep, extensive and ancient tomb complex not far from Paphos. A good place to take the kids for a bit of culture when they get bored of the beaches

Third century BC, Hellenistic necropolis containing well preserved tombs.

The Tombs of the Kings have their name to aristocratic officials who, due to their high position, could theoretically be considered kings. The area is also called "Necropolis" and is a huge open area that extends to the sea and is worth visiting not only to walk inside the graves but also to get away from the noise of the city. The ticket costs just 2.50 euros. In the summer, have a hat and water with you because the heat is stuffy.

UNESCO-Kulturerbe im Westen von Zypern bei Paphos: In den Königsgräbern wurden zwar gar keine Könige beerdigt, sondern Beamte. Trotz dieser kleinen Einschränkung: Die Felsen mit ihren Bauwerken in unterirdischen Höhlen sind auf jeden Fall spannend. Allerdings fehlen oft Hinweistafeln, so dass nicht immer ganz klar ist, worum genau es sich gerade handelt. Reiseführer mitnehmen oder sich noch besser einer Führung anschließen, ist zu empfehlen.

Μεγαλοπρεπείς τάφοι, λαξευμένοι μέσα στους βράχους, ένα μοναδικό θέαμα που σε αφήνει με το στόμα ανοιχτό. Άλλοι περισσότερο κι άλλοι λιγότερο καλά διατηρημένοι, το σύνολό τους καλύπτει μια τεράστια έκταση και δημιουργεί ένα θέαμα μοναδικό. Δεν είναι τυχαία η ονομασία τους, η οποία οφείλεται στη μεγαλοπρέπειά τους καθώς στην πραγματικότητα αποτελούν ταφικά μνημεία αξιωματούχων. Προσοχή απλά στην ώρα που θα τους επισκεφθείτε καθώς το καλοκαίρι η ζέστη είναι πολλή ενώ θα ήθελα και επεξηγηματικές πινακίδες με περισσότερες πληροφορίες.
