St. Solomon’s Catacombs A Pleasant Myth This was an interesting visit but the historical significance of this site is questionable. Make sure that you also climb on top of the catacombs which has some interesting remains. The site is very poorly marked with almost no explanation. Needs some further development.

Please mind your head when going down the stairs! Don't think I'm the first person to walk away with a bashed head. Also, a torch would be handy. I love exploring / ruins, but there was not much to see here. There are more catacombs directly across the road mostly surrounded by a metal fence, combine the two to make... More

Best to book sea trips in the Harbour, cheaper than Hotel Rep and more destinations, will cater for all age groups, excellent service

2 mins from the major UNESCO archaelogical site in Paphos. Worth a visit as the catacombs lead to some good views, a large site called 'St Paul's Pillar' and a new area being excavated which includes a theatre. Catacombs accessed firstly down uneven steps, further up the road you climb up some rough ground. St Pauls Pillar area has wooden... More

From reading previous reviews, the tree with all the tied fabric in was the dead giveaway. Just as we were driving past we spotted it and decided to bob in. We bought an ice cream from the neighbouring shop and walked to the tree. A bit of a magical mystery tour! Steep steps and low ceilings- be warned! The caves... More

Interesting to see the catacombs - it's a small site so only a quick visit. Sensible shoes preferred as the steps are uneven. Shame there's not more information there. Also tried to see the larger catacombs over the road but closed - however you can get a good view just by peering over the edge.

A place of interest on a stroll around Paphos, free to look down the catacombs but unsuitable for wheelchairs.
