Vatican Museum Virtual Tour

Retrace the stages of the history of Rome in Virtual Reality through different scenarios.

With our animated 3D reconstruction integrated with professional multilingual music and audio tracks, exploring the Vatican Museum has never been easier and more exciting! All the contents within the reconstruction that you will observe, were handled by the Digilab Archeo & Arte3D department of the La Sapienza University of Rome.

The history of Ancient Rome

First of all, discover the subdivision of the city of Rome into neighborhoods up to its expansion and enhancement. Become a spectator in one of the most feared circuses of all time: the Circus of Nero. Hear the cheers of the crowd inside waiting for a show; and finally hear the stories of how this Circus became the starting point for all subsequent events.

The Paleochristian Basilica

Then change the scenario. You are in 313 A.D. and the emperor Constantine allows Christians to profess their religion. What happened then? The first places of worship were born: the Basilicas. Here it is in front of you the first Paleochristian Basilica. The first St. Peter. Listen to her story; its events; wander around the surrounding buildings; admire the external and internal architecture; the frescoes; the altar and the bronze canopy that adorned the tomb of St. Peter. Witness its transformation over time until it assumes its current form.

Sistine Chapel

Finally, conclude the experience by getting to the heart of one of the greatest masterpieces of humanity: the Sistine Chapel. The doors open wide. There he is with the color dripping into his eyes. Michelangelo. The great genius. Let him welcome you and transport you inside his painting. Witness the separation of Light from Darkness; to the creation of Adam and Eve; to arrive at the original Sin and their Expulsion from the Earthly Paradise. End the experience in a completely unexpected way. Go through the gates of Hell and meet Charon. Where is he headed? Here is the sound of the trumpets, the Angels of the Apocalypse arrive. So, look around. Bodies rising from the ground; the damned thrown down from the clouds; crowds of angels flying in the sky. In the center Christ who with his right hand up announces that the Last Judgment has begun.

Inside the Vatican Museum Tour…

Now it’s time to step inside.

Find out what’s left of everything you’ve already seen virtually. Finally, together with your tour guide, you will arrive at the entrance of the Vatican Museum with the Vatican Museum Tickets. Follow it to discover a riot of art and history treasures. A vast collection: first of all the Pinacoteca of the Vatican Museum; secondly, the marvelous spiral staircase of the Vatican Museum; the Raphael Rooms; the Laocoon; the New Arm of the Vatican Museum; and then much more.

Room after room you take a journey through different eras and testimonies. From Egyptian sculpture to the present day; from gilded ceilings to mosaic floors. You won’t know where to look. Everything is sure to be wonderful and unexpected.

Then conclude your Vatican Museum Tour with an open mouth admiring the riot of colors, bodies and floating garments of the Sistine Chapel. Observe every little detail; marvel; be amazed. It will surely be unforgettable!

Of course, all this only thanks to a Vatican Museum Virtual Reality Guided Tour.

Il Colosseo come non lo avete mai visto Esperienza molto interessante per gli adulti, indispensabile per bambini e ragazzi. Grazie al visore 3D si è trasportati in modo coinvolgente nella Roma imperiale, una visione che aiuta a comprendere la visita successiva al Colosseo. Organizzazione efficiente, personale gentile e preparato. Giudizio critico dei nostri figli: “una figata”! Consigliatissimo
