A recap of our ‘Virtual Tours’ series
Last year, we showed you a series of museums, galleries and attractions across Italy that offered virtual tours. This allowed you to see these monuments from the comfort of your home plus serve as inspiration for your future getaway.
With travel still restricted around the world, we thought this is a good time to remind you of these virtual tours. Below you will find links to all of the virtual tours, plus another we recently featured on Facebook. While these excellent resources aren’t as good as being there, let your mind wander to a time in the near future when you can visit Italy once again!
