We are closed in our homes due to the pandemic, schools, shops and restaurants have been closed and flights suspended. Faced with four walls and an inability to get out, we prepared a list of best virtual trips. We may not physically be able to travel, but we can still dream and look forward to a brighter future.
The Sistine Chapel is certainly one of those places that everyone must see at least once in their lives. Whether you’ve seen it before or just planning a trip to the Vatican, with a virtual trip, you can get a closer look at the famous ceiling and Michelangelo’s masterpiece The Last Judgment.
The Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is famous for its unique architecture and great location on the shores of Sydney Harbor. This virtual tour goes beyond the famous exterior and shows what is happening inside the walls. The 360-degree tour includes a brief appearance by cellist and then prominent opera singers. Take a virtual tour.
Great Pyramid Of Giza
Great Pyramid of Giza is considered as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and is the largest of the three pyramids outside Cairo. The site consists of a sphinx and three large pyramids representing the tombs of Pharaoh, which were built thousands of years ago. Although this virtual tour does not offer an inside view of the structures, it does offer a view from the top of each pyramid that visitors do not have access to.
With the wonders of the world, thanks to Google Arts & Culture, you can also walk the Rome Colosseum. It is Italy’s most famous attraction and one of the most visited places in the world. You know how they say – “All roads lead to Rome!”
Taj Mahal, India
The Taj Mahal Mausoleum in India is a dedication to love – it was built in the mid-17th century by Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, whom he called Mumtaz Mahal (“the jewel of the palace”). You can now take a peek at the Taj Mahal from your home.
Grand Canyon, USA
This national park is the most famous and visited canyon on our planet. It is over 1.5 miles deep, and we are sure that you will enjoy the beauty of nature, virtual hiking or maybe even rafting on the Colorado River.
Statue of Liberty, New York
New York is almost always at the top of the list, if you can’t go, visit it at least with a virtual tour. The Statue of Liberty has always attracted the attention of tourists, and this online walk includes photos, audio, as well as all the interesting things about this site.
Norway’s Lights over Lapland project takes virtual visitors on a mini-trip north of Europe in search of polar light. It’s not the same to see aurora borealis live and on the web – but hey, you know what they say, better than nothing.
The Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam houses the largest collection of this artist. Subjects and work styles changed throughout his life, but he is remembered most for his numerous self-portraits. Through Google’s Art and Culture exhibition, viewers have access to hundreds of his paintings. The museum plans to provide 4K resolution video clips, which will allow viewers to have private tours of the museum.
