The students and accompanying persons will be equipped with smart glasses with completely transparent lenses that give the possibility of never losing perception of the real context and in addition they will see the architectural work – no longer physically present – reconstructed as it was originally. AR Tour of the Archaeological Parks offers a rich schedule of tour routes that can be customized at the moment according to the needs and the time available. The experience with smart glasses is available with a prerecorded audio in five languages (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish), with detailed narration of the monuments. The narration can be interrupted at any time by the tour leader, in order to interact with the students.
