Grand Tour of Rome
In the 1700s, the city of Rome became a hub for rich European tourists, eager to see the ruined monuments of ancient Rome. This revitalized Rome's economy, and building projects skyrocketed. This rich tourism market allowed mapmakers to create some of the earliest most detailed city maps in the history of cartography. Of note, the mapmaker Giambattista Nolli created the most detailed map of Rome that had ever existed until that point, detailing hidden alleys, the insides of churches and buildings, garden paths, and even the ruins of ancient Rome's dilapidated bridges. Using his map as the basis, this projects seeks to recreate the city through his eyes, and those of other mapmakers; notably Giovanni Battista Falda and Giuseppe Vasi. Using their work, this project will recreate the city of Rome and its surrounding countryside in 1:1 scale.

This is a revitalization of my old project: 17th Century Rome - Based on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood & Historical Maps

Thank you, the software is called WorldPainter. It'll only give you that view before you export it as a Minecraft map though.

Yes! As accurate as I can make them depending on the availability of source material. Not only St. Peter's but also all the surrounding buildings.
