Google World Wonders Project Explores Famous Places

The Google World Wonders website is a fun one for explorers and travelers everywhere. The project uses Google’s 360 degree panoramic camera technology to capture both the interiors and exteriors of a number of fantastic locations around the planet and then put it online for all of us to enjoy. The results are Google Street View for some iconic destinations, not to mention a gigantic distraction from our daily lives.

Some of the more interesting locations available include Stonehenge, Versailles, the Swiss Alps and both Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks. They also have the interior of Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic hut, which should prove of interest to many readers, as it still contains gear and other artifacts from the British explorers visits to the frozen continent.

If you’re looking for the opportunity to travel the world today without ever leaving home, then you’ll truly enjoy what Google has put together here. Be warned however, after you’ve finished strolling along the Banks of the Seine in Paris, you may wonder where your day went.

  1. Unfortunately I don't the The Blue Grotto's interior will show up but what a great thing!

  2. The Tower of Hercules is an ancient Roman lighthouse on a peninsula about 2.4 kilometers (1.5 miles) from the centre of A Coruña, Galicia, in north-western Spain. The name Corunna is
    said to be derived from the ancient column. The structure is 55 meters (180 ft) tall and
    overlooks the North Atlantic coast of Spain. It is almost 1900 years old, was rehabilitated in 1791, and is the oldest Roman lighthouse still used as a lighthouse.
