“Really interesting”

Kition Archaeological Site
Ranked #37 of 74 things to do in Larnaca
Attraction details
Reviewed December 4, 2013

If you like history you'll enjoy just being here - thousands of years of time passing under your feet. Well signposted and lots to read about the history of Larnaka from its early times. Go early morning or later in the day to keep out of the heat though!

This one is spread over several areas of town, and Larnaca covers much of the old city in any event. Not well marked. Does not tell the story well.

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.

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.
