Tour These European Castles Virtually from the Comfort of Your Living Room During Covid-19 Quarantine

If you are like most people in the world right now, you are staying home and trying to find a way to get through the days. After all, there are only so many hours you can spend watching Netflix or Disney+! All those chores probably don’t seem appealing either, which is why I would love to recommend touring a few European castles virtually from the comfort of your living room.

European Castles You Must Tour Virtually from the Comfort of Your Living Room

Virtual European Castle Tours

Palace of Versailles

This palace is where Louis XIV lived, and it was the Sun King himself who made it famous. As you take the virtual tour of the palace, you can see the infamous Hall of Mirrors, stunning artwork, amazing artifacts, and even the outdoor gardens. If you have always wanted to see the Palace of Versailles up close, this is the next best thing!

Royal Palace of Caserta

This is an Italian palace and you may not know that it is one of the biggest royal palaces in the entire world. The King of Naples lived in the Royal Palace of Caserta and you can see many views of the interior and exterior during your virtual tour.

Catherine Palace

Russian history is fascinating and there are not too many people who have not heard of Catherine the Great. A virtual tour of this palace will only take you around the outside, where you can see the stunning white, blue, and gold façade. Catherine the Great only lived in this palace during the summers, but it still holds quite a bit of history from her reign.

Edinburgh Castle

There are quite a few castles within the country of Scotland, but the Edinburgh Castle is an excellent place to start with a tour. This castle is located up on Castle Rock, so it looks out over the capital city. Your virtual tour will include views of the infamous grounds, so be prepared to enjoy some incredible views without needing to leave your home.

Buckingham Palace

Everyone loves the Queen of England and not too many have the opportunity to tour the inside of this palace when they are over in London. There are many reasons for this, but the main one is that no visitors are allowed in for tours when the Queen is in residence. Thankfully, you can take a virtual tour of this beautiful palace from the comfort of your home! You can see the State Rooms and they will give you an idea of how the rest of the palace must look.

You may be able to wander around a castle you have wanted to see for years without even walking out your front door!
