A simply stunning UNESCO World Heritage site, Machu Picchu is a visual wonder that just has to be seen. You no longer need to fly all the way to Peru to see it in all its glory, however, as the virtual tour is comprehensive, immersive, and filled with fascinating insights.
OPEN HERITAGE SITE
Check out thousands of churches, temples, statues, monuments and more on Google's Open Heritage site, where they strive to digitize the world’s culture. You can even walk the streets of Pompeii in their street-view mode.
Take your own online tour of Paris's most famous museums' exhibition rooms, galleries and architecture.

As one of Germany’s largest museums, Pergamon has a lot to offer – even if you can’t physically be there. This historical museum in Berlin is home to plenty of ancient artifacts including the Ishtar Gate of Babylon and, of course, the Pergamon Altar.
Madrid's must-see art museum has the works of some of the continent's most celebrated artists like Rembrandt and Dali available online.
Explore the masterworks from the Dutch Golden Age, including works from Vermeer and Rembrandt. Google offers a Street View tour of this iconic museum in Amsterdam, so you can feel as if you’re actually wandering its halls.
VAN GOGH MUSEUM
Anyone who is a fan of this tragic, ingenious painter can see his works up close (or, almost up close) by virtually visiting this Amsterdam museum – the largest collection of artworks by Vincent van Gogh, including over 200 paintings, 500 drawings, and over 750 personal letters.
This less well-known gallery houses the art collection of one of Florence, Italy’s most famous families, the de'Medicis. The building was designed by Giorgio Vasari in 1560 specifically for Cosimo I de'Medici, but anyone can wander its halls from anywhere in the world.
The Museu de Arte de São Paulo is a non-profit and Brazil’s first modern museum. Artworks placed on clear perspex frames make it seem like the artwork is hovering in midair. Take a virtual tour to experience the wondrous display for yourself.
NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ANTHROPOLOGY
Built in 1964, this museum is dedicated to the archaeology and history of Mexico’s pre-Hispanic heritage. There are 23 exhibit rooms filled with ancient artifacts, including some from the Mayan civilization.
