House of Dionyssos, Pafos
Unbeknownst to some holidaymakers who want to see a bit of history and culture, the mosaics housed within the House of Dionyssos, in Paphos, are actually outside. They are situated in what is now an archaelogical site which was - many centuries ago - a house. So what? You might say.
Well, there are some things to consider in that case. Firstly, if it is really hot, as it frequently is during the summer, you should take a hat and carry a bottle of water around with you as the mosaics are not all in one place, they are on several different sites and there is a distance to cover between each one. I remember my surprise at this aspect, the first time I went!
Secondly, wear comfortable shoes...there is no point wearing high heels!
Thirdly, allow time. Don't try to do everything in one day (as many people do because Paphos is home to many interesting sites). The mosaics take time to see. Time to read about them, time to walk between them, time to look at them, and time to return again to the main gate when you're done.
They are well worth visiting - as some date back as far as the 4th century! [more]
