The oldest, 9.000 years & still populated, city on earth

What are the three oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world?

I don’t know about three, some other posters have done a great job of pointing those out.

There is one place in southern Italy that should be given some attention. Matera, Italy has caves, Sassi di Matera, that are thousands of years old and, according to anthropologists and archaeologists, have evidence of being continuously inhabited since 7,000 BCE.

According to Wikipedia:

“Matera is the only place in the world where people can boast to be still living in the same houses of their ancestors of 9,000 years ago. “

MMatera was once classified as Italy's SHAME, & it was probably so, until the 50s & 60s) but it is now a fantastic place to stay, see and visit for a few days, we highly recommend it.
