The longest phase in the cell cycle is called G1. It's the phase before the DNA replication. So the cell is actually preparing for the other steps of the cycle.
 
Its duration depends on many things : it depends if the cell has everything needed to enter the rest of the cycle. Also it depends if it is a procaryotic or eucaryotic cell. For eucaryotic cell it depends if the environment is sending positive signals for cell multiplication.
 
That's why this can last between minutes (procaryotic cells), to hours (yeast) or even years (liver cells).
