Vatican Museums, Raphael Rooms & Sistine Chapel
Privileged entrance to St.Peter’s Basilica
The Vatican Museums are among the most important art collections in the world, hosting over 1,400 individual rooms, and this is your opportunity to get close and immerse yourself in a once in a lifetime experience.
Sign up for our Vatican Group Tour and you won’t merely just walk through with the masses, but rather, live this phenomenal adventure through art. Admire the works of Michelangelo and Raphael, feel the beauty of their frescoes and hear how they achieved these masterpieces of Renaissance art. Our guides are both passionate and knowledgeable so this is your chance to exceed your expectations with a tour that is personal and of the highest quality.
You will be given access to the privileged entrance, which leads you right into the magnificent Basilica of St. Peter’s,with its endless wealth of decoration, achieved over centuries by historically acclaimed artists like Michelangelo or Maderno.
Learn how the Popes managed to manifest their position and power over the centuries. The reality is that with so many artworks, if you were to view each piece inside the Vatican Museums for just half a minute, you would not leave the complex for seven years. Let us save you time and confusion by guiding you through the best of the best in a 2.5 hour tour, packed with history, art and fun facts about what is arguably Rome’s finest treasure.
Additional meeting time and location details will be provided after booking.
The Student discount applies to all those participants up to 25 years of age with a valid Student ID. Student IDs must show the name, date of birth and a picture of the student. For participants between 12 and 18 years of age, any ID showing name, date of birth and picture of the participant will be accepted.
Due to the possibility of temporary closure of the Basilica of St. Peter’s, ‘What a Life Tours’ does not include a tour through the Basilica of St. Peter’s in the listed price. We do always guarantee an entry to the Basilica of St. Peter’s, skipping the line, and unless prohibited due to an unforeseen closure, we offer the option of an extended 45 minutes tour through the Basilica of St. Peter’s for an additional €10. Guiding is not allowed in the Basilica of St. Peter’s after 4.00 pm, therefore we are not able to offer the additional tour service on the 3.00 pm tour.
The Vatican Museums require that each party leaves an ID of some sort as a deposit for the headsets used during the tour. The ID will be given back upon returning the headsets.
The Vatican Museums’ direction and the Basilica of St. Peter’s require all participants’ knees and shoulders covered. ‘What a Life Tours’ does not take any responsibility for participants rejected by authorities due to inappropriate apparel.
We also strongly recommend booking a Private Tour for those in a wheelchair, as your guide will be able to adjust the itinerary to your needs.
The Vatican Museums can be subject to unforeseen closures in exceptional cases without notice, in this case we are happy to offer an alternative and extended tour through the Vatican collections.
The Basilica is an active parish and therefore subject to unexpected closures for spiritual celebrations. In such cases we will inform you in advance and alternative tour time or itinerary.
