A plan to promote the virtual tour of Iran’s historical spots listed on UNESCO’s world heritage sites has been unveiled recently.
Called “11,000-kilometer trip at home: visiting world heritage sites”, the plan is jointly designed by the Information and Communication Technologies Ministry and Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Ministry, the latter’s Public Relations Office reported.
Officials say the plan, unveiled in Tehran on Wednesday, is the first of its kind implemented in the country.
As explained, the virtual tour is aimed at partially offsetting the travel ban triggered by COVID-19 during the Norouz (Iranian New Year) holidays from March 20 to April 3.
A small-scale pilot scheme was run during Norouz, which provided a virtual tour of several museums.
