Larnaca (also known as Larnaka or Λάρνακα) is a city in Cyprus located on the southern coast 40km southeast of Nicosia. It has an international airport and is the main entry point for tourists into Cyprus. With 85000 inhabitants it is the third largest city in Cyprus. The area of Larnaca has been settled at least since the 13th century BC (city-kingdom of Kition, whose ruins are in the northern part of Larnaca). The city was later ruled by the Phoenicians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks and Ottomans. Larnaca has a nice long beach and an adjacent harbour. Except for a medieval fort and the church of Saint Lazarus there is not that much in terms of tourist attractions.
