Virtual tours of The Louvre skyrocket amidst the coronavirus

Virtual tours of The Louvre have skyrocketed amidst the coronavirus.

With travelling restrictions in place across most of the world, people are looking online to satisfy their travel cravings, with virtual trips to the iconic Musée du Louvre in France's capital of Paris have increased the most since the world went on lockdown.

Ronni Kenoian, manager of e-commerce for InsureMyTrip, said: "Google Arts & Culture has teamed up with over 2,500 museums and galleries around the world to bring priceless art and experiences into your living room."

InsureMyTrip have put together a list of those places that have seen the biggest increases in Google searches since the beginning of March.

Elsewhere on the list was San Diego Zoo, who are livestreaming most of their animal areas, whilst Disney World also featured. Here you can experience the excitement virtually through 360 degree street panoramas as well as having the best seat in the house as you virtually take on their theme park rides with point of view videos on their YouTube channel. The Great Wall of China and The Guggenheim in New York City, both of which have virtual tours, complete the top five.
