5018 TarseúsTarsus, the leading city in ancient Cilicia (a province between Syria and Asia Minor), located about 10 miles inland from the coast of present-day Turkey.

Tarsus has remained continuously populated for more than 6,000 years, making it (perhaps) the oldest city in the world still in existence.

[Some feel Damascus is older, which also claims this distinction.]
