Limassol is one of the busiest ports Mediterranean transit trade and the largest port in Cyprus. It has also become one of the most important tourism, trade and service-providing centres in the area. Limassol is renowned for its long cultural tradition, and is home to the Cyprus University of Technology. A wide spectrum of activities and a number of museums and archaeological sites are available to the interested visitor.

Consequently, Limassol attracts a wide range of tourists mostly during an extended summer season to be accommodated in a wide range of hotels and apartments. A large marina is currently being constructed near the old town. Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion and during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis (new town).

Today the city spreads along the Mediterranean coast and has extended much farther than the Castle and Port, with its suburbs stretching along the coast to Amathus.
