Google Adds New Street View Imagery of Historic Sites


Google has added some historic and architecturally significant landmarks in Italy and France in its Street View feature of Google Maps, including UNESCO sites in Rome, the center of Florence and chateaux in the French countryside.

In addition to seeing the exterior of archaeological sites like the Imperial Forum and the Colosseum in Rome, you can now explore inside the Colosseum.



In few clicks you can navigate through centuries of history. Start at the birthplace of Rome, the Palatine Hill, the Appian Way and the Thermae (Baths).

After wandering around Rome, you can fast forward in time to witness the celebrated architectural wonders of the Italian Renaissance, including Giotto's Campanile (bell tower) and Brunelleschi's Cupola (dome) in Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence.

In France, you can view picturesque chateaux and indulge your fantasies of living like French royalty by taking a virtual stroll around the beautiful Fontainebleau.
