Full description
Discover the wonders of the Vatican through a completely innovative virtual reality experience. Wear the Samsung Oculus VR viewer and set out to discover a time now past but still steeped in the streets and squares of Ancient Rome. Watch the evolution of what was once the left bank of the Tiber river, the Mausoleum of Hadrian, and the Circus of Nero from which it all began. Meet our staff at the meeting point who will be happy to give you all the information you need to better enjoy your immersive tour. You are in 313 A.D. and Constantine puts an end to Christian persecutions and allows them to freely profess their religion. See how the first basilica was dedicated to the memory of the Apostle Peter. Meet the genius of all artists: Michelangelo, who will accompany you to the heart of the painting he created. Float in the sky and bear witness to the Creation of the World, the Stars, the Light, and Adam and Eve and their expulsion from Eden. Raise your eyes, everywhere angels, white clouds, the damned expelled from Paradise, and then the blessed waiting to go up to heaven. Listen! A ringing sound of trumpets comes towards you. The angels of the Apocalypse. Climb on a cloud and admire the landscape around you. Go inside the Last Judgment waiting for Christ who will restore the order of Heaven. Once your virtual reality experience is over, you will be accompanied by your tour guide inside the Vatican Museums with a skip-the-line ticket. See the classical works, Roman statuary, Etruscan and Egyptian testimonies, and then candelabra, tapestries, golden ceilings, and breathtaking gardens.
