The Sistine Chapel

Here is an amazing bit of technology that you would never see in person, as 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! There are way too many details to view on an iPhone but might be okay on an iPad 3.

To view every part of the Michelangelo’s masterpiece, just click and drag your arrow in the direction you wish to see. In the lower left, click on the plus (+) to move closer, on the minus (-) to move away. The choir is thrown in free.

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