Tour the Eiffel with Google Museum View
Google and its 360-degree Street View cameras have headed off to the Eiffel tower in Paris to capture views on its three visitor levels and offer an unprecedented panoramic vista of Paris.
Google explains that to capture the images, its Street View team joined the queue and followed the footsteps of the seven million visitors who annually head up to the viewing platforms on the second, third and top floors .
Take a look at the results which are part of its cultural institute programme taking a virtual walk through hundreds of museums, cultural institutions, and archives — to show artworks, landmarks and world heritage sites.
