Paphos Off The Beaten Path: 44 reviews and 104 photos
Most people visiting the Tombs of the Kings will only bother with the main tombs, but it's worth exploring some of the smaller ones not mentioned in the guidebook. These, I think, give a better impression of what the site was originally like.
The two Roman altars carved into the side of this tomb (badly damaged by quarrying) are typically Roman in style, and lie above the 'loculi' where bodies would have been placed.
There are other carvings dotted about the site, so it's worth going off the main paths to explore.
