One year after Google Street View went international, the number of street maps increased from just a few here and there in the urban areas of big US cities to at least 50 regions worldwide! The maps included digital postcards, fascinating virtual museums, tourist attractions, and a whole slew of natural landmarks. It’s incredible that anyone with an Internet connection can visit the White House, the Great Barrier Reef and even Stonehenge without leaving their room!
Here are our picks of the 10 best Google Street Views that show good photography and the finished product is just too good to miss.
10. Palace of Versailles – Versailles, France
You’d like to visit the legendary Palace of Versailles but you have a meeting in 15 minutes and you’re not even in France? Worry not, Google’s got you covered! Visiting Versailles in person would, of course, be a different story but beggars can’t be choosers, so pour some wine, put on a beret and admire the most opulently decorated interior you’ve ever seen and don’t forget to check out the Hall of Mirrors, while you’re at it.
