Stroll Ancient Pompeii Virtually

December 4, 2009

Google Street View now allows you to virtually tour the ruins of Pompeii in 3D. Check it out here.

According to this BBC story:

Italy’s culture ministry says it hopes the move will boost tourism to the site, state news agency Ansa reports….

“Giving people a chance to take a virtual stroll through Pompeii will give an extraordinary boost to Italian tourism,” Ansa quoted Mario Resca of the culture ministry’s heritage promotion department as saying.

Very cool.
