Earlier this month, we showed you some great new Street View imagery that Google had captured using their innovative “trike”. Today they have just released more, including some very significant landmarks in Italy and France.
Some of the new sites to see include the Baths of Diocletian, Fontainbleau, and the Colosseum in Rome, seen here:
While these sites look great in Google Maps, remember that you can also view them in Google Earth. Thanks to the enhancements to the Street View feature in Google Earth 6, it’s now much easier to browse this kind of imagery from within Google Earth. To enter one of these areas, or any other Street View-enabled location, simply drag the “Peg Man” from the controls in the upper right corner onto the globe.
