You can read details about the US cities on the SketchUp blog. They mentioned Florence in a tweet, and it indeed had quite an update as well.

    I love Italy!!! I’m going back next year and just can’t wait. FYI I booked my trip through Tuscan Way, found at . Has anyone used them before? I chose the “La Locanda Wine Tour” and am sooo excited.

  2. How can I download the 3d city file?

  3. Tommaso — No need to. Just make sure the “3D buildings” layer is turned on, then fly to those cities. The 3D buildings will automatically begin to load.

  4. HI Mickey,
    I would like to export the 3d geometry to some kind of 3d software (sketchup for instance),
    It would be very helpfull for some architectural concept analysis.
    Only a little part of 3d buildings are avaible on 3d warehouse,
    Is there a method to export the geometry?

  5. Sorry, but I don’t know of any way to extract 3D data for buildings that aren’t in the 3D Warehouse.

  6. great Going google i think in future google is going to lead the world .Nice 3d view of these cities .
