Street View is much more than a tool for taking an early look at the local scenery of an upcoming road trip, it’s now an easy and affordable way to see parts of the world that were once limited to a privileged group of jetsetters. Today Google announced the addition of a grand new virtual tour that lets you visit some of the biggest monuments of Ancient Egypt from the comfort of your computer.

Some of the stops include the legendary Pyramids of Giza, the Giza Necropolis and of course the Great Sphinx. Tourists can also explore The Pyramid of Djoser, the Cairo Citadel and Abu Mena, one of the oldest sites of Christianity in Egypt. Here’s a quick look at some of the historic landmarks featured in this new piece of Street View imagery.
