I was disappointed with the continued camera movement in spite of being asked to still well only saw a portion of things vs the entire square or rectangle for example. The virtual travel is amazing n information gained is lovely but we also want to save our postcards. I was not alone requesting better pics.

Art lovers should not miss Anne Claire's brilliant "Collegio del Cambio or the world's most beautiful bank" tour. Perugino's paintings are outstanding and she is one of the most knowledgeable VirtualTrips guides. I admire her professionalism and the passion she has for art. Thank you Anne Claire for this wonderful (and so very well explained) tour. Looking forward to more!
