“Ancient Larnaca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

A bit difficult to really imagine and get the layout of, especially if there's building-work going on right next door, but worth a visit to see where Larnaca began.

“Historical place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

A place filled with history. I recommend visiting only if you are interested in ruins and patient. Also, a guide is of great help. Also, don't forget to have water with you, especially if it's a hot day.

“Kition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 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.
