By consequence we design our Italy tours as 360-degree experiences of the eyes, the mind and the heart, helping you not only to appreciate the beauty of art but also clarifying the profound ideas and genuine emotions that inspired its creation. This is the goal that the Italian and American founders of Through Eternity, and all of our team will help you to realize.

All of our guides are fluent in English and have a contagious passion for the rich culture of Italy. They lead our tours of Italy knowing that every day we step on centuries of history, and that a painting encloses as a circle the sense of an artist's life.

Our group tours of Rome have a maximum of 8 or 13 people.

Our tours are authentic journeys to the roots of our societies and traditions as we take you into the reality of the past; along the way we will recreate the lively environment and the social and political context in which events, institutions and revolutions developed.
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.
