“Not a lot to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This site is currently being upgraded with more information boards recently erected. Nevertheless, there is no guide book or leaflet and this would be no more than about 30 minutes of interest hidden away in the city centre of Larnaca. UNless you are an expert on the history/culture, not much to see.

“hard to find”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

it seems like the site is abandoned, no ticket office, no information board, not what I've expected from such an old and famous historical place.

“Amazing Site”

This is a small but Amazing site worth the effort to find it if you love history, a step back in time, go early in the morning as it gets so hot opening hours Mon-Fri 8am-5pm.There is a pathway/ramp for disabled people.

“Archaeological Wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a very old part of Laranca, dating something like 7000bc. The Kition Museum tells the history of this area and is well worth the visit

“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.
