Staying at home has become an indispensable collective imperative. However, nothing prevents you from taking advantage of modern technologies to enjoy some virtual tours in some of the most exclusive and difficult to visit locations in the world. The most fascinating? Certainly visits to some of the most iconic castles and palaces in the world.
For lovers of French history and art, it is possible to conduct a virtual tour in the incredible Palace of Versailles: at http://www.chateauversailles.fr/decouvrir you can access a huge amount of interactive and non-interactive material, including a tour that can be done with a virtual reality helmet. In addition, it is also possible to access the “virtual exhibitions” of the works contained in the Royal Palace, with explanations and high resolution images for a more in-depth tour.
For lovers of the English Royals, however, the Royal.uk site allows a brief but interesting navigation inside the Queen’s rooms Buckingham Palace (you can find it at this address https://www.royal.uk/virtual-tours-buckingham-palace)ì, a trip to some rooms of the Windsor Castle (https://www.royal.uk/virtual-tours-windsor-castle) and in those of Holyroodhouse, residence of Queen Elizabeth in Scotland (https://www.royal.uk/virtual-tours-palace-holyroodhouse).
