Walk down the streets of Pompeii right now

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

Google Maps has added Pompeii to its street view function!1 That means you can wander its ancient streets as soon as you stop reading this without spending a dime.

Just go to Google Maps, type in Pompeii Italy, then drag the little yellow man icon from the zoom controls onto the street. The ones that are included in street view will turn blue.

I had to hunt around a little to find the ancient city as opposed to the (relatively) modern town. Just look for “Pompeii Scavi” (Pompeii digs) and drag the little man there.

Here’s a shortcut
