Part video game, part museum tour
Web app Giza 3D permits online visitors to virtually explore Egypt’s pyramids
The Pyramids at Giza in Egypt are among the world’s great archaeological treasures. A visit there, though, has involved an expensive flight to Cairo, a dizzying cab ride across the congested metropolis, and in general, baking under the Egyptian sun. But now, exploring the three pyramids of Giza can be done from anywhere there’s an Internet connection. “Giza 3D,’’ a free interactive Web app launching Tuesday, will offer the virtual explorer an animated passage through millennia-old tunnels and tombs.
