Armchair Travel Continued: Sistine Chapel



Who said foreign travel has to be expensive? In fact, you can do it right from the comfort of your desk. OK, so you lose that whole first-person experience thing, but it's better than nothing, right?

My latest discovery in the armchair travel category (although some might call it the wasting time category) is this virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel, which allows viewers to check out every angle of the breathtaking building and its awe-inspiring artwork. The 360-degree tour comes courtesy of the Vatican itself.

Apparently, Italy is a great place for virtual tours. You can also view the Colosseum and the ruins of Pompeii.
