Google allows you to travel the world without leaving your home

During this period of home quarantine, you’ve probably gotten bored of sitting in your room and have thought of ways to pass time. Many of us might have even used our computers or mobile phones to connect with friends, scroll endlessly through social media, or watch online concerts from our favorite artists.

Given that virtual entertainment is booming after the lockdown, Google Arts & Culture has a special offer for those who are itching to go outside and travel to their dream destination. The online platform allows users to travel “virtually” to places like museums, palaces, and opera houses. Not to mention, these historic places can also be useful for educational purposes.

Here are some of the famous places you can tour online:

Palace of Versailles

This is the famous home of Louis XIV. Here, you can visit the famous Hall of Mirrors, walk through its scenic garden, and admire some of the best artworks and artifacts in the palace.
