“The Vatican tour with Francesca was the highlight of our 3-week visit to Italy. She was absolutely amazing! Besides describing the history and symbolism of countless paintings, sculptures and relics she was able to answer every single question about anything and everything we asked of her. Her education, experience and enthusiasm were priceless. I can't imagine doing the Vatican without a guide and she was terrific. The 5.5 hour tour flew by.” see less

“Good day! We were fortunate enough to book two tours with your company in advance of our trip to Rome, Italy a couple weeks ago! After our time in Rome, we enjoyed a cruise of the Mediterranean, just recently returning home so I can now let you know about our tours with Through Eternity! We were most fortunate to have Luca as our tour guide for our first tour of the Forum and the Underground Colosseum! He was most knowledgeable, personable, friendly, and provided us with a most wonderful and enjoyable experience!! The tour was everything that you advertised and MORE!! There are not enough accolades that I could offer that would do justice to how much we enjoyed the day with Luca! Please know that we will most definitely utilize your services again on future trips and will most highly recommend you to anyone we know who may be looking for a tour!! Our second tour was also great!! We were again most fortunate to have Luca as our tour guide of the Early Entrance Vatican and, once again, we were most impressed with his knowledge and the way he conducted the tour!! Words cannot express how satisfied we are with both experiences with Through Eternity and with Luca!! THANK YOU and Luca for making our trip to Rome so memorable!! Your tours were well worth the costs and we are more than satisfied customers!! :) ” see less

“My family and I loved our private Love and Death tour. We were looking for unique experiences and stories to go along with all of the traditional sights and stories of Rome. We found that with Luca and your company as a whole. Regarding this tour specifically, it was interesting, full of history and intrigue. Our guide was engaging without being overbearing or demanding, which is very important to me. I'm very shy and don't deal well with strangers, but I was comfortable on this tour. There is a lot of information to take in in a short amount of time, but days later my family and I find ourselves remembering and discussing what we learned. When this tour ended we had only an hour to make it to our next tour stop and have lunch. Luca was very accommodating, making sure we found a cab and that the driver knew where we needed to go before he left us. We enjoyed and appreciated him very much. You should give him a raise :) Regarding your company as a whole, we loved all of our guides. They all had distinct personalities, but were equally good. I would absolutely recommend your company to others. I won't be back home for a few weeks, but when I get home, I'll do online reviews. ” see less

“Good day, i want to thank ThroughEternity for making our Rome experience more memorable. Francesca was so engaging, very educative, sound and very funny as well. My kids age 11 and 8 were also able to relate and enjoyed the tour. It was well planned and well timed. We ran into Francesca the following day at the Vatican Museum and my kids were thrilled, it felt like we ran into an old friend! We hope to use your packages again someday soon...we are very grateful for the experience. Best regards to the team and Francesca!” see less

“Federica was fantastic!! She took such wonderful care of me and my friend, and created the most incredible atmosphere for us to enjoy our time at the Vatican. And the recommendation from Through Eternity to do the early morning tour was beyond worth it!! That special time enraptured by the presence of the Sistine Chapel and The Last Judgement without the crowds was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I will continue to use Through Eternity for my future travel tours in Italy - hands down a truly amazing outfit!!” see less

Through Eternity's Philosophy

Through Eternity is staffed by a team of English-speaking archaeologists, historians and art historians who live in the italian cities and inhabit their constantly evolving history and traditions. They love to share their enthusiasm and knowledge for their cities with you, covering all of its important sites and topics with an accessible and engaging approach.

We know that your time in Italy is precious and is often the fulfilment of a life-long dream. We care about this and don't want you to miss this great opportunity to enrich your mind and your life, experiencing at first hand the roots of our present societies and institutions.

With our well-planned and carefully studied tours of Italy, you will be able to maximise your time experiencing the culture, the history and the art of the past in the most direct and meaningful manner possible. We believe in the importance of travelling with opened eyes, attentive minds and excited hearts. 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.

With all of our Italy walking tours you avoid the lines at the Vatican Musuems, St. Peter's Basilica, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Uffizi, Accademia and other unmissable sites.

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. To unearth these powerful underlying histories, and furthermore to explore with you their powerful relevance to us today, is their goal.

Our group tours of Rome have a maximum of 8 or 13 people. They are a journey through the ideas, passions and lives of hundreds of great artists and outstanding figures from the past - from Michelangelo to Bernini, from Julius Caesar to Emperor Constantine - all of whom imparted a new direction to the art and the history of Rome.

Our Rome private tours offer you our expertise to help you explore and experience Rome and her treasures, discovering the impact and the meaning that they had at the time of their creation.

Our tours of Rome are intended to provide an immediate experience of art, offering you the basic tools to engage with the language of the artists in an accessible and interesting manner, and thus reaching through to their powerful worlds of thoughts and emotions.

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.

Our tours of Rome because what we see in the great archeological parks of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, and in the imposing architecture of the Colosseum, is all that remains of a vast invisible city of ideas, politics, and economic life. 

Our Vatican tours to participate in the political and artistic life of the Vatican in the years of the pontificate of Julius II (1503-1513), to sit at his lavish table in the Belvedere Courtyard with ranks of artists, rich patrons, and art lovers, to be with them at the rediscovery of ancient artworks, at the creation of the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and in the Raphael Rooms (the Stanze), and at the new Basilica of St. Peter.

Our Vatican private tours to participate in the great artistic enterprises of the Renaissance and in the silent competition that brought Michelangelo and Raphael to draw out frescoes for eternity from the cold plaster of the papal palaces, to understand the techniques, the figures, and their meaning. 

Our private tours of Florence are a journey into the Renaissance, to discover the ideas, passions, and inventions that characterized the time of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael. The best way way to understand what profound cultural renewals the Renaissance, with its new centrality of man and his physical nature and intellectual qualities, brought to all fields of human activity, from politics to religion, from art to science. 

Our tours of Florence help you to understand the lives of the great artists of Renaissance from Brunelleschi to Donatello, from Botticelli to Michelangelo, following them through the crucial phases, formation and ideals in the cultural context of the time. 

Our private tours of Pompeii help you understand why at Pompeii more than in other sites we are presented with the geometry still intact of those places where life was moving along tranquilly on that fateful day in August of 79 AD when the volcano swept away time.
