If you have ever wanted to visit the streets of Venice and be escorted through its historic waterways by a serenading gondolier, then you do not have to wait any longer. Today Google rolled out a very extensive and thorough look at the city of love via its Street View service.




The tour through Venice not only hits the tourist highlights, but little visited areas of the city as well. Google utilized its Trekker backpack and Trike Street View imaging devices to capture the beautiful city in 360 degrees of glory. Head over to the source link below to visit places like Piazza San Marco and St. Marks' Cathedral, the Synagogue of the first Jewish Ghetto and even the Devil's Bridge in Torcello island.



"The narrow roads and bridges of Venice show off the need for the Trekker to bring imagery of more breathtaking places online for the world to see," a Google spokesperson said in an Interview. "Other pedestrian-only places we could take the Trekker include hiking in the natural forests and climbing the steps of ancient temples and castles."
