Let’s be honest — travel isn’t really on the cards for us at the moment. With most of us stuck inside, the most we’re traveling is from the living room to the bathroom. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t explore the wonders of this world. More and more attractions across the globe are starting to offer virtual tours of their palaces, their heritage sites, and their national parks. These are some of the best — and you definitely don’t want to miss out.
Machu Picchu, Cuzco
Normally, anyone wanting to visit Machu Picchu would have to fly to Peru and then take a few-day trek to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. With this immersive virtual tour, though, you can rest easy knowing that you can check out the Inca site from your very own couch. How cool is that?
The Louvre, Paris
Known for some of the most impressive artwork and antiquities that this world has to offer, The Louvre is one of the most iconic museums of all time. From the Mona Lisa to Egyptian artifacts, The Louvre normally costs a pretty penny to navigate. It’s now free with The Louvre Virtual Tour, though.
The Acropolis, Athens
The Acropolis is an ancient wonder that has seen visitors within its midst for centuries, but what if we told you that you could visit it from your living room? The Acropolis can be seen even if you don’t like flying and if Greece doesn’t float your boat.
The Vatican, Rome
No trip to Rome would be complete without a trip to Vatican City — technically classed as the smallest country in the world. As the home of the Pope and the iconic Sistine Chapel, you can rarely take photos when you travel here. However, if you take The Vatican Digital Tour, you can check out the breathtaking artwork and architecture on offer.
So, which of these virtual tours will you take first?
