The experience of historic urban environments remains an ideal context to probe questions of urban identity. The Eastern Mediterranean preserves significant examples of cities whose continuous history can be traced all the way back to Prehistory. In particular, the capital of Cyprus is considered amongst the most contested urban environments having historically layered pasts and perplexing present-day realities . This paper proposes a methodology for the cross-disciplinary study of complex urban realities, with the use of advanced technological applications for the formulation of real-time virtual environments that create spatial data of user behaviour in and around monuments of cultural heritage.
