Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, and during Byzantine (Byzantine Empire) rule it was known as Neapolis (new town). Limassol's historical centre is located around its medieval Limassol Castle and the Old Port. 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. To the west of the city is the Akrotiri Area of the British Overseas Territory (British Overseas Territories) of Akrotiri and Dhekelia.

Limassol ranked 87th worldwide in Mercer's Quality of Living Survey (Mercer Quality of Living Survey) (2012), between Bratislava and Tallinn.
