Take a Virtual Tour of Machu Picchu, One of the New 7 Wonders of the World

Briefly not­ed: Google will now let you pay a vir­tu­al vis­it to one of my favorite places on the plan­et — Machu Pic­chu, the great Inca ruins locat­ed in the Andes in Peru. There’s noth­ing like vis­it­ing Machu Pic­chu in per­son. But if you can’t get there, you can do worse than take this tour.

Take a train ride through the Andes, to this his­toric site. And once you’re there, vis­it the His­toric Sanc­tu­ary of Machu Pic­chu, includ­ing The Tem­ple of the Three Win­dows, the Tem­ple of the Sun, the Astro­nom­i­cal Obser­va­to­ry, and the Sacred Rock, among oth­ers parts of this UNESCO World Her­itage Site. You can also explore more Inca arti­facts over at the Museo Machupic­chu at Casa Con­cha, which holds the largest col­lec­tion of such arti­facts in the world. Hap­py trav­els.
