Top UNESCO World Heritage Sites To Visit On Virtual Tours

There are wish-list destinations, and then there are the wish-list destinations that double up as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Scattered across the globe, these protected pieces of land are often rugged and enveloped in thick vegetation – time capsules of nature and history that are so untouched and jaw-droppingly beautiful, they are our members’ most coveted.

We’ve helped members reach the furthest corners of the world – from the crumbling Acropolis in Athens to Machu Picchu’s craggy cliffs – to experience these unforgettable landscapes, holidays that they count among their most memorable. Today, you can traverse the Great Wall of China or glide through the Great Barrier Reef right from your sofa with one of the high-definition virtual tours listed below… each of these destinations will inspire your next adventure, and we’re here to help you plan it.

The grandeur of this ancient citadel cannot be overstated, and you can get a high-resolution glimpse into its majesty in the online tour. Explore every crumbling corner of the Parthenon and admire the sculptural details of the Erechtheion. The tour of this UNESCO World Heritage site also has comprehensive information on each part of the Acropolis so is great for brushing up on classical Greek history.
