Create an itinerary including Tombs of the Kings
See Tombs of the Kings, an ancient burial site of Hellenistic and Roman administrative officers and distinguished people, and their families. Just steps from the sea, the site has a typical Eastern Mediterranean feel to it, with small sand dunes, low grass and bushes, and palm trees. Take a self-guided tour among the ruins and enter the atriums carved into natural rock to see niches in the walls that were used for burials. Used between the 3rd century BCE and the 4th century CE, the site features Doric pillars and architectural styles from Alexandria, Delos, Pergamon, and Priene.

  • There are some old tombs cut into the rocks by the sea, it is interesting to go and visit as you can go inside them. Would benefit from some information boards with more explanations.

  • Very fascinating place, could spend hours exploring in the tombs. Remember and take water with you, we went on a very hot day and forgot and had to cut our visit short because we were very thirsty...

  • Absolutely fantastic, visited here with 2 Girls aged 10 & 11 and we all thought it was amazing. So interesting. Super fun to explore, walking down flights of stairs to get into the tombs lined with columns. What's not to like, my girls loved it and we would highly recommend.
  • Even though it is a very incredible place to visit, I felt that the authorities and the people working there could have done much more for the improvement of the facilities. For example, a map of the place could have been easily made, explaining the whereabouts of every tomb and their location. Instead, you find yourself walking in the 40°C heat without knowing where to go exactly or even which period every tomb is from. In conclusion, an interesting place to visit that could be much improved to make it as enjoyable as it could be.
