Virtual Tour of the Acropolis, Greece

The Hellenic Ministry of Culture has just launched an interactive tour of the Acropolis, and it's wonderful.

If you've never been there, this is the closest you will get without going to Athens.  If you have been there, the tour allows you to see things you may not have seen before due, for example, to access restrictions because of restoration work, or security.

It is very user friendly, with both horizontal and vertical controls, and 360 degree views.

Bravo! to the Hellenic Ministry of Culture.

Let's hope they expand this idea to other treasures in Athens, and elsewhere in Greece.

(Oh -- and visit Greece this year.  They need you.)
