Last month, Google users gained the ability to virtually explore the Burj Khalifa [2]. This month, the company has announced that you can now explore Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Once again, the team at Google used a special Street View Trolley (it’s in the image above) to capture the 360-degree panoramic images. Pascal Malite, a Street View Program Manager, actually pushes the trolley around and helps carry it through a flight of stairs. You can see that, along with some other beautiful views in the video below:

If you virtually explored the Burj Khalifa last month, what are you waiting for? Your next trip is here [3]. And if you’re interested in a little history on the Eiffel Tower, you can visit its section in the Google Cultural institute right here [4].
