Vatican (June 4, 2013) - A new website enables anyone to visit and learn about the Vatican and the Holy See online with unique 3D virtual tours, news from the Vatican, photos articles and more.

The 3D virtual tours are truly unique. With breathtaking graphics which remind many of gaming technology, one can walk around freely and explore the site and even be guided with a narrator.
The tours include the Sistine Chapel - site of Papal Conclave (where the pope is elected) and St. Peter's Square - the famous square in-front of St. Peter's Basilica.

Vatican 3D online tours can be found here: http://vatican.com/tour


The 3D Virtual Tours are available online and are completely free. they are truly a novelty in online tourism. Vatican.com is a brand of Jerusalem which has produced 9 3D virtual tours of Jerusalem which can be found here: http//jerusalem.com/tour.

According to the spokesman of Jerusalem.com and Vatican.com the 3D virtual tours are mean to "bring Jerusalem and the Vatican to the world. Many cannot make pilgrimage for financial, political or other reasons so why not fuse technology and content to allow people to be "online tourists" and experience something new and often spiritual".

Besides the 3D tours Vatican.com (and Jerusalem.com) offer all those interested great content such as HD Photos, News, Q&A sections and unique videos such as the Stations of the Cross.
