    I find the 360 degree view amazing.When I visited the Chapel it was being cleaned and it was half covered with scaffolding. It is wonderful to see it as this.

    It is pretty amazing don't forget to use the Plus + and minus - signs or the mouse wheel to zoom in and out.

    Here's an amazing bit of technology that you'll probably never see in person, and you would never be alone in the room.

    It is always very crowded and of course you can't see Michelangelo's artwork close up as you can here. This is especially spectacular if you have a large high-definition screen!

    The Sistine Chapel: Virtually view every part of
    Michaelangelo's masterpiece.

    Just click and drag your arrow in the direction
    of the part you wish to see.


    In the lower left, click on the plus (+) to move closer, on the minus (-) to move away. Or Scroll to move in closer.
    AMAZING! MOVE THE ARROW AND YOU WILL SEE EVERY PART OF THE CHAPEL.

    This virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel is incredible. Apparently done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican ..

    Thought you would enjoy the quality and a bit of Rome on your computer. Amazing what can be done with technology.

    Thanks for sharing. The scaffolding was down when I was there, but this is a lovely memento of the trip.

    My DH was there a few years ago and he said that pictures don't do it justice. I bet Michelangelo would have been an amazing quilter.
