Sistine Chapel

Enjoy your trip!


  1. I knew about the Lateran tour some time ago, but had not seen the others. Thanks for posting these links.

    Anyone not used to this form of photography: as well as zooming in and out (use the scroll button on your mouse) you can pan through 360º by moving the mouse from left to right or vice versa.

  2. Paul,

    Thanks for the tip about the 360 degree pan; I had not known about that.

    I look forward to many more virtual tours since I don’t particularly like flying.

    Since I now have a large monitor in front of my treadmill, I am in no danger of becoming a couch potato. I can walk during my virtual tour.
