We present an environment for navigating the Web through a virtual reality space. The two-dimensional Internet space is mapped into virtual worlds according to predefined and/or inferred metaphors. Web and metaphor elements are given a conceptual representation to highlight their similarities, which are used to construct an appropriate mapping. The derived virtual representation is realized through a VR-builder, which generates VRML sources. As a result, a Web site is mapped into a virtual world, allowing naive users to easily navigate the WWW
