Now, the former home of popes is nothing more than a few mouse clicks away, with 13 different 3D vantage points ready to transport you to the one of the Eternal city’s most famed churches, the first church of Rome when it was originally built.
The final product was realized by the University of Villanova, a Roman Catholic, Augustinian university in Pennsylvania.
And thanks to their efforts, the Lateran comes to life like never before. Start at the apse and wind your way through both naves, the chapels of Lancelloti and Corsini and any other corner of the hallowed church you want to see.
All you need is an internet connection and an imagination to see centuries of Roman Catholic history come to life.
