“Underground, arena and third tear tour WORTH IT!! My boyfriend and I figured it would be wise to pre-book a Colosseum tour in advance. We searched through the tours available for the Colosseum, and found that you could do a tour which included the underground area that the gladiators and animals were kept before battle, the arena floor where you can imagine yourself being a gladiator and the third tear of the Colosseum - all usually restricted areas. The tour also included line skip tickets to the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Until a few years ago you could not visit these three areas. My boyfriend got his heart set on this but I was skeptical. Would line skip queue really be short, or just shorter? Would we really have these three areas all to ourselves or would there be multiple groups crammed in? Let me say: my doubts were soon quashed, and I spent most of the day thanking him for pushing us to do this tour. The extra euros were well spent. We literally walked straight in, and the restricted access areas were a once in a life time experience. We were in a group of 7, with Cinzia. There were another two groups, from the same company that we shared the restricted areas with, meaning there were 21 people there. That's it. We got great photots of just us and the magnificent structures. Cinzia clearly loves what she does, and shared with us her wealth of knowledge. We were really imprsssed with her. Basically, a five star experience - absolutely recommend these guys!” see lessAugust 15, 2015 Jasmine Selvage

“We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Underground Colosseum + third tier tour. Our tour guide, Thomas, was wonderful, enthusiastic, funny and knowledgeable. Our teenaged children were engaged from beginning to end. Thomas gave us a more than a tour, he gave us an interesting perspective on the political and historical significance of the Romans influence on our lives today. I would recommend Through Eternity and our tour guide, Thomas, to anyone who wants to do more than take pictures of the Colosseum. Thank you for a wonderful experience.” see lessAugust 15, 2015 The Charles Family

Our private tours of Rome give you an in-depth view of the city's temples, piazzas, statues and frescos. Not only will you see and experience these sites on our tours but you will also re-live the times and places as they were when they were inhabited by our ancestors; those who practiced rituals, participated in ceremonies, ate at wedding and funeral banquets, and who strolled and congregated in these very streets.
