Google and Culture Ministry – more virtual Italy

‘Google e il Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali presentano un nuovo tour virtuale delle meraviglie d’Italia su Street View’ [link]

Or rather, having previously rendered a visit to the Uffizi Gallery superfluous, Google, in a joint project with the Italian Ministry of Culture, have further expanded their Streetview offerings to take in yet more landmarks in Italy. To whit:

• Roman Forum, Rome
• Colosseum, Rome (book tickets for the Colosseum)
• Appian Way, Rome
• Diocletian Baths, Rome (included in Rome Pass)
• Villa Adriana, Tivoli (Rome)
• Archeological area, Gabii (Rome)
• Villa D’Este, Tivoli (Rome)
• Ercolano digs (Naples)
• Venaria Reale (Turin)
• Historical centre of Florence (ticket booking for Florence)
• Capodimonte (Naples)

No Venice as yet, the trike has no periscope.
