Bernard Frischer: Virtual Field Trips To Ancient Rome and Beyond

May 22, 2021, 12pm EDT

In this talk, Bernard Frischer will present the virtual tours created by his employee-owned company, Flyover Zone ( The company is a pioneer in the new field of virtual tourism. Frischer will first discuss the Rome Reborn series of tours, and then three other tours relating to Roman civilization: Hadrian's Villa Reborn: South Theater, Hadrians' Villa Reborn: Stadium Garden, and Baalbek Reborn: Temples. The latter tour is available for free download at:, and attendees are encouraged to try it out before the talk. The company's virtual tours show you the ruins of world heritage sites today, as well as a Time Warp feature that restores the ruins to give you a sense of how the monument looked in antiquity. The tours are developed and led by the world's leading experts on the sites presented. And, in contrast to Zoom-based tours, which are typically slide shows, Flyover's tours empower the virtual tourist to explore the site as her curiosity dictates. Our motto is: "Quemque trahit sua voluptas!"
