FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the “3D family friendly tour with ipads”?
Once you enter the archaeological sites, you will be given a mini ipad which is loaded with the monument’s augmented and virtual reality app.
By moving the tablet around, the user is able to see the exterior and interior of the temples as well as all the amazing statues.
Why shall I do the “3D family friendly tour with ipads”?
The 3D app is very unique. It will feel like a virtual time traveling gadget and you will feel you have become part of the glorious era of the ancient Greek history.
You will be able to view the monuments, statues etc in their original shape (fully reconstructed) i.e. as they used to be thousands of years ago.
You will also be able to open virtual doors and enter rooms that are not open to the public e.g. the Throne Room of Kind Minos at the Palace of Knossos.
