Iranian officials have recently unveiled a plan to promote the virtual tour of Iran’s historical spots listed on UNESCO’s world heritage sites.

According to an ISCA report, the plan, called “11,000-kilometer trip at home: visiting world heritage sites”, is jointly designed by the Information and Communication Technologies Ministry and Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Ministry, the latter’s Public Relations Office reported.

Officials say the plan, unveiled in Tehran on Wednesday, is the first of its kind implemented in the country, Financial Tribune reports.

On the other hand, Deputy Minister of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Ministry of Iran Mohammad Hassan Talebian on Thursday announced that Iran’s UNESCO World Heritage sites can be visited on virtual tours during the holy month of Ramadan.

He added that as the country’s tourism has gone into lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic, the ministry has decided to arrange virtual tours on the country’s 24 World Heritage sites in collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
