Back in 2009 we began as a group of young and energetic Rome enthusiasts from all different countries, hoping to find a way to share our love for this wonderful city with people from all over the world. We created a team made up of insider experts, savvy local guides and specialists in food, art and culture, and developed what we believe to be the most personal and authentic approach to tourism in the market.Arrange to visit What a Life Tours and other attractions in Vatican City using our Vatican City trip itinerary planning app .
We’re all about enhancing the experience for you, the customer, because ultimately, we used to be just like you – foreigners in this beautiful yet overwhelming country, with high expectations but no idea of who to trust and how to find the places and information that are truly Italian and not just tourist traps.
We’ve carefully selected hotels, restaurants, travel advice – all as a complimentary addition to our in-depth tours and services, because we genuinely want you to have an unforgettable, stress-free, local insight into the dolce vita here in Italy.
So forget what you know about the typical commercial ‘tour guide’ with a raised umbrella and a rehearsed speech – let us show you the real heart of Italy and ensure you fall in love with this country, just as we have!

What a Life Tours Reviews
I’m sorry that I can’t remember the guide’s name, I think it was Mario. We had a great time, guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Very pleased more »
We ended up changing to the early morning tour due to a change in the Pope's plans, and so glad that we did. Our group was small, and our tour guide Mario, was amazing. He was super knowledgeable and ... more »
Ana was really genial, passionate and hugely informative. I enjoyed Anas attention to detail and eye for what really mattered. Length was perfect. I loved the tour thank you! more »
Did the early access Vatican tour on 10 Nov with Ana...our group of 8 was the perfect size for the adventure. What a Life tours came recommended from a friend and I will happily pass the recommendation along. Ana. Wow do we think we lucked out with her! She was knowledgable, personable, with good humor and really the perfect personality. All in all, she really made this one of the best tours possible!
Booked an early access tour at the Vatican and had a great time. My wife and I don't usually do a lot of tours but we were glad we did this time. Our guide Ana was great, and made some strategic decisions to allow us to see everything while avoiding the crowds (as much as possible).
We went on the Afternoon Vatican Tour with Beatrice and were extremely satisfied. She was very knowledgable and made our trip much more enjoyable. We were taken care of from the moment we arrived in their office, and the small group made the experience more personal. Highly recommended!
My wife and I did two tours with What a Life of the Vatican and Colosseum and we were extremely happy with both! Joseph is fantastic and extremely responsive to queries and providing helpful information. Highly recommended!
We booked the colosseum night tour at the recommendation of a friend, but we’re rained out due to days of rain beforehand... HOWEVER, the tour company proactively reached out to us when it looked like a weather cancellation might happen and upgraded us to a longer, more expensive tour the next morning (at no additional charge). The tour itself was a great way to experience these sights and avoiding the long lines was worth it.
