Aradippou is situated in Southern Cyprus, a small distance from the International airport of Larnaca. The village used to be traditionally for farmers but its view changed after the Turkish invasion in 1974 as well as due to the economic explosion which followed. In the present day Aradippou constitutes a nodal point at the international road network of the island and the nodal transportation of Rizoelia which is known to every Cypriot.
