Google Street View brings you the Colosseum

If you’ve always wanted to experience the wondrous sights of one of Rome’s most famous landmarks, the Colosseum, but could never pony up the cash for a plane ticket to backpack around Europe, Google’s latest addition to Street View should make things better. Google has just announced that they’ve added a number of significant, European locations to the panoramic Street View feature available on Google Maps and Google Earth. Some of these locations include the Imperial Forum, the Colosseum, Giotto’s Campanile and Brunelleschi’s Cupola in Rome; and the Château d’Fontainebleau in France. It looks like Google is really doing its job to catalog the whole world online. Head over to the Street View gallery to explore these recently added locations.
