Google Night Walk
In an effort to encourage people to discover, experiment, and do more with Google products—specifically, Google Maps—we created Night Walk, a virtual walking tour of Marseille, France. In contrast to the usual self-guided daytime tours available on Street View, Night Walk lets users soak up the nocturnal sights and sounds of the city at its most enchanting evening hours. Visitors can navigate the streets of Marseille with the help of a local tour guide, Julie, and can stop at interactive hot spots along the way. Embedded videos (explanations of famous street art, for example) and stunning scenic panoramas lend a certain je ne sais quoi to the app.
