Larnaca City Info

Larnaca or Larnaka, is a popular city on the southeast coast of Cyprus. The major international airport of Cyprus is located in this city. Larnaca Cyprus is the oldest city of Cyprus and was originally known as Kition, or Kittium. When you pick up your Larnaca car hire you can tour around Larnaca and witness the first settlement at the spot which was founded by Noah's grandson Khittim. Unlike other ancient cities of Cyprus, which were abandoned by their inhabitants, Cyprus Larnaca from the time of its founding 6000 years ago, has existed and still exists on the same site. In ancient times, Larnaka was known as Kition, or (in Latin) Citium. The biblical name Kittim, though derived from Citium, was in fact used quite generally for Cyprus as a whole, and occasionally by the Herbews for the Greeks and Romans. Originally the principal Phoenician colony in Cyprus, it later became a part of the Hellenistic world. The ancient site is at the north end of modern Larnaca Cyprus. The earliest remains go back to the Mycenean age and seem to mark an Aegean colony, but in historic times Citium was the chief center of Phoenician influence in Cyprus.

The advantages of Cyprus Larnaca as a tourist resort are numerous. The town is large enough to give everything one may need but still is not overcrowded especially at its beautiful beaches which extend for 25 kilometers.
