Fancy a look at all 12 World Cup stadiums? Take a virtual tour on Google
The world will soon descend upon Brazil for the world's biggest festival of football.
While not all of us will have the chance to be in Samba country, football fans can get a virtual taste of any of the World Cup's 12 stadiums on Google Maps.
The Internet search giant has released a series of Google Maps Street Views showcasing the venues, letting you get a feel of each stadium on the pitch or even from the stands.
Google has also created a gallery that features Brazil's painted streets, a World Cup tradition of the South American nation, like this one from Rua Astrapeia in Sao Paulo.
Best of all, you won't have to leave your home or spend a cent to enjoy these magnificent sights of Brazil.
