Google Street View coming to Venice

'Trekker' mapping car-free city by foot

Google Street View coming to Venice

Venice, July 17 - Google Street View, the feature on the search engine's mapping service that allows users to walk virtually around a destination, is coming to Venice. In a few months, the California-based Internet giant plans to wrap up 'trekking' the city of no cars, a process that involves an engineer walking up and down each and every medieval alley with a multi-angle camera harnessed above his head. Once finished, Google Maps and Google Earth users will have a panoramic, three-dimensional view of virtually any point of Venice and be able to zoom in and out on monuments such as St Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Trekking reportedly began in April. It is not known if Venice Street View will also include canals.
