“Kition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Few Hellenistic or Roman artifacts have been found at Kition, making the site unusual and especially important. It also makes it politically delicate, as Greek Cypriots tend to be less enthusiastic about ruins of Asiatic cultural origins.

“Archeological Monument in Larnaca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

In the town of Larnaca Kition is the name of several archeological excavations made by Swedes. The main visible structures are those of a large shrine that was rededicated to the fertility goddess Astarte by the Phoenicians and four small earlier.

“great for historians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

archaeologists would love this slice of the past. Just a shame the Cypriots don't look after their national treasures a little better. Rubbish strewn about !

“Very Small Not Much to See”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Ancient Kition was very close to my hotel so I made sure I paid a visit. It's a very small archeaological site that is fenced in. There are artifacts such as pedestals and such under a roofed shed. There really is not much to see here. You can see it all in a few minutes
