Paris 26 Gigapixels

Paris 26 Gigapixels, a huge assembled panoramic image made of 2346 photos of Paris is definitely another way to check your Paris!

The site offers a virtual tour of Paris, with high resolution and great lighting. It’s cool to see the great expanse that is Paris, and see its beautiful glimmering architecture from above. There are a few downsides though, in that there is no street level view and the navigation is somewhat clunky and awkward. Google earth undoubtedly trumps this effort, although the photographers and collaborators should be commended for successfully stitching together the worlds largest assembled panoramic image. Bravo!

Perhaps it’s but a taste of the wonderful view of Paris you could see from the Suite Triomphe in the Splendid Etoile Hotel ?

Or from the Terrass Hotel “Window over Paris” Room, in Montmartre?
