By: Chris Crum - January 17, 2013

Google announced on Thursday that it is now publishing Street View imagery for hundreds more cities, towns, village, heritage sites and tourist attractions in Israel.

These include: Safaed, the coral reef in Eilat, the lowest point on earth at the Dead Sea, Acre, Tiberias, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum,Tel Meggido, Mamshit, Shivta, Bet She’an National Park, Tzippori, a nature reserve at Timna, El Carmel, Rahat, and Burma Road.

“Sports fans can even go inside Ramat Gan Stadium or Bloomfield,” says Street View program manager Ulf Spitzer. “And museum lovers can take in Haifa’s National Museum of Science, Technology & Space, the Holocaust Museum at Kibbutz Yad Mordechai, the Ghetto Fighters Museum at Kibbutz Lochamei Ha’getaot, the Museum of Bedouin Culture in the Negev desert, or take a tour around the Egged Bus Museum.”

“We’ve added imagery from cities, towns and villages including Ashdod, Ashkelon, Be’er Sheva, Bnei Brak, Eilat, Isfyia, Kfar Qasem, Kiryat Gat, Nazareth, Netanya, Ofakim, Petah Tikva, Rishon LeTsiyon, Sderot, Tira, and many, many more,” adds Spitzer. “And stay tuned – we hope to expand coverage to still more of the region’s sites, streets, cities and towns in the future.”
