Virtual Tours Of Italy With San Pellegrino
San Pellegrino Fruit Beverages is giving fans of Italy a free, if virtual, trip to Taormina, Sicily.
To arrive on the streets of Taormina all you have to do is log into your Facebook account and Like the San Pellegrino page. You are then placed in a queue for your turn to stroll around Italy’s streets.
All of this is made possible thanks to a quartet of robots, which you can remotely control for three minutes. The location of Sicily was chosen because that is where the 81-year old brand’s fruit ingredients come from.
The amazing thing is you can actually interact with locals and practice your Italian, due to the two-way audio-video connection that has built-in language translation capabilities.
If you don’t fancy chatting to anyone then you can just opt for a more scenic experience using a Skybot device, which is a robot mounted on a 40-foot pole, capable of showing you 360-degree views of the city and the Mediterranean.
Explore the cobblestone streets, chat with the colorful locals and take in the breathtaking scenery. This is a true break from the ordinary, a Momento for the mantlepiece.
