The ladies over at Eternally Cool, one of our favourite blogs about Rome, have a knack for discovering otherwise well-kept secrets in Rome’s world of art and design. Now, they have shared with the world that the Vatican has launched a high-resolution, interactive, virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel:

It takes a bit of practice with the mouse or touchpad and the controls in the bottom left corner of the chapel to figure out how to move around, but once you’ve got the hang of it, it’s great!

I agree. The virtual tour lets you examine parts of the Sistine Chapel that you won’t be able to see clearly even when visiting it, and is even enhanced with choral music to round off the experience!

What a way of getting around the infamous queues leading up to the Vatican Museums from April to October.
