Unfortunately could not get inside

I was only able to glimpse it from the fence as the site was closed being Saturday. I would have loved to go in given the amazing Kition history I am reading about.

Government run site and the entrance fee is 2.5 Euro. quite big and you can see all the foundations of a group of tempals dating back to 13000 bc, i think it would have been better if we had a guide as the notice boards do not help much.

I was somewhat disappointed having travelled from Pathos to see this site. It is not well signposted (no Brown Signs) and seems to be ignored by the many locals I asked for directions. That said having finally located the site (next to the British Cemetery) there was ample parking. The entrance to the site was unimposing and not conspicuously signed.... More

A significantly important archeological site, very simple layout but more is being worked on so more to see over the coming years. Good use of raised walkway to cross the site, archaeologists were on site on my visit. Surprised not busier based on the archeological importance of this site.

Happened across this site almost broke accident looking for somewhere else. Not much to see as a large portion of it is still being excavated and access is not allowed but there are some nicely displayed archaeological finds for you to look at just off the side from it.

This place is indeed small but we didn't lack information. The guard/guide can provide you with lots of info, which is very useful as the labels/captions are close to unreadable (years spent in direct sunlight). You can see ruins of 5 temples here but no artefacts - those are in the Archaeological Museum of Larnaka (or other cities). According to... More

I rented a car from Ayia Napa to Larnaca specially to see this sight. My ancestors, the Phoenicians, were the founders of Kition. However, bummer!, it was closed on Sunday. Also, the place was hard to find. Even with GPS, I had to look around and ask the locals to find it. It is a small sight, seen from behind... More
