    Tour the Wonders of Ancient Egypt with Google Street View.

    I don’t remember much from my trip to Egypt as a child in the mid-90s. I know that it included seeing the Pyramids of Giza, being too afraid to ride atop a camel, and rushing hurriedly from one place to another as it was part of a two-day layover with my family en route to the United States.

    Although I can’t relive those experienes entirely out of poor memory (and a serious lack of photos, come on mum and dad, really?), Google Street View’s latest offering of a virtual multimedia tour of some of the world’s most historic sites is the next best thing.

    Through it, Google takes us on an inspirational tour of the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Pyramid - the last standing wonder of the ancient world, the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure, the Great Sphinx - the oldest and largest known monumental sculpture in the world, the world’s very first Pyramid designed by the great Egyptian Architect Imhotep in the ancient burial ground of Saqqara, and so much more.

    See it all here.
