Premium Virtual Vatican Visit with Vino: Sistine Chapel & The Last Judgement
Time & Location
About the Event
Enjoy a high-quality virtual visit to the treasures of the Vatican. Rather than traveling thousands of miles, across seas and oceans only to walk thousands of steps to visit the high-traffic areas of the Vatican, now you can make that journey from the comfort of your home!
Staying safe and staying home, you will enjoy a decade's worth of insights gleaned from leading pilgrims and patrons through the beauitful & compelling drama of sacred beauty. It is also a perfect opportunity to get some real *insider* information with a small group of online friends.
The theme of this virtual visit will focus on the famous Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. Making use of the virtual tour provided by the Vatican Museums, we will explore the history, theology, philosophy, and art of this sacred space. This visit will serve as a general introduction to the 'whoosh' of salvation history that swirls around all the visitors swept up in the Sistine experience !
Finally, to keep things interesting, we are pairing our virtual visit with the best local Roman wines. We have selected wines that accompany the insights into the lessons of theology & philosophy we will explore on our visit. Wines will also be chosen according to the details found in the famous Last Judgement fresco, giving particular attention to "meditation wines". This way you can *taste* the beauty that will surround you on your virtual visit of the Sistine Chapel.
As a part of our curriculum for the Wine Masterclass, Jennifer Burke from Total Wine & More will lead us on a virtual tasting of Amarone red wine during our hour together. You get to virtually visit one of the most beautiful buildings in all the world AND you get to have a high-class guided tasting.
If you would like to *actually taste* the wine we will be drinking, you can order our Online Wine Harvest Festival Package Pass.
Anyone who orders this package get the real, can't-get-anywhere-else wine, gets access to this LIVE virtual visit, AND gets access to the upgraded recording of the visit, when it becomes available on-demand in October 2020.
