We found it alot better to start exploring the tombs on the edge first,as all the tourists start at the begining and the chambers there were really busy.That way by the time you walk back there's hardly anyone there.If your anything like me i can't stand crowded places.Lol.
There are a hundred tombs on the site and they are cut out of the ground with a steep drop into them.Its said that there are no kings buried here but were probaby used to bury the local noblemen.When you enter the tombs some have lots of passageways to explore.
The ruins are well preserved.
You can feel they belong to you.
The pillars and corridors are a little eerie like a computer game. Tomb Raider or Doom.
There is a cafe at the tomb of the kings where you can get something to eat and drink.It was nice to go in during the midday heat which was unbearable.Opening times for the tombs of the kings are Jun-Aug daily 8.30-7.30 and Sep-May daily 8-5.
We found the bus service really good in Paphos.You can catch the bus from Paphos town center and it drops you off right outside the Tombs of the Kings.Also you only pay one price on the bus even if you get off at the next stop or ten stops away.
The best advice i can give if you are visiting the Tombs of the Kings is to wear sensible shoes,the steps leading down to the Tombs are really steep as you can see in this picture.
