Armchair History Tourist: The Sistine Chapel 3D Tour

Armchair History Tourist: The Sistine Chapel

This is one of the reasons I love finding History online: you can still see famous artefacts and artworks when you can’t afford to pay the airfare to see it in person!  This is definitely a must-see website.

From the Vatican’s website: A 3-D tour of the Sistine Chapel and its masterpieces of Renaissance art by Michelangelo.

And let’s be honest, for those that have visited the Sistine Chapel, you know that it’s usually so packed with people that you barely get to see anything anyways.  For once, I think the online version is better than the real thing!

    Thanks for sharing! Think it is better than being there as no people to work around.

    • That’s exactly what everyone in my class said when I showed this to them. They had never actually seen all of these details because you’re crammed in with hundreds of other people who are all looking up! I couldn’t believe the floor – I’ve been here twice and NEVER noticed the floor. 🙂
