Have you imagined visiting one of the most popular Museums in Greece at any time from your home and seeing the magnificent painting of the “Triumph of Achilles”? How would you feel if from anywhere on the planet you could be taken on a guided tour of the Arcade of the Wise Men and walk along the royal paths of the Achilleion Palace? How would you feel if at the click of a button you could find yourself in a boat and be guided from the “Lake of the Nymphs” to the “Great Ocean” of the Diros Caves, discovering the place where the largest number of hippo bones in Europe have been found?
In utilizing the possibilities offered by digital technology and following the modern international practices of promoting and enhancing cultural and historical sites, the Public Real Estate Company SA enables the Greek and international public to get acquainted with the emblematic sites of the Achilleion Museum and the Diros Caves through the digital tool of 3D Virtual Tours.
In the spirit of Corporate Social Responsibility, the Public Real Estate Company makes this new program of 3D virtual tours available free of charge to the Ministry of Education and Religions. Following the recent approval by the Institute of Educational Policy, this program will be available during the new school year to all schools across the country, giving students the opportunity to discover the cultural and natural wealth of Greece.
Moreover, this initiative which was realized with the Public Real Estate Company’s own resources, comes at a critical time for the operation of all museums worldwide due to the effects of pandemic restrictive measures. According to a recent survey by the Network of European Museum Organizations (NEMO), 70% of museums in Europe remained closed throughout the pandemic. The same research shows that this led 93% of the latter to design digital material that allows the public to access the exhibits and spaces without being physically presence.
In this context, the Public Real Estate Company in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Sports, adopts modern international practices of promoting and enhancing cultural spaces, offering both Greeks and users from anywhere in the world the opportunity to experience a complete digital guided tour.
