If you’re an art history nerd like me, Google’s latest Art Project will be right up your alley. While I still highly recommend going to a museum to see works of art in person, this tool grants access to both paintings and museums that not everyone will get a chance to see live and up close. It serves as the next best thing as your virtual tour begins.

So, if you’re flight to Florence has been canceled, you can still check out the Uffizi and get a peek at the Birth of Venus. This tool would have been very helpful during my  college art history classes.
