“Hello from Canada, This was our third Through Eternity tour and we were just as delighted as we were with our first two tours, which were four years ago. Your meeting point instructions were very detailed and much appreciated. Francesca was a fantastic guide and we really appreciated that she is an archaeologist, which made the tour even more interesting. We used your company for our daughter's honeymoon 3 years ago, and we will not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family. We feel that the price was reasonable based on our satisfaction with the tour. Thank you for offering this experience, and keep up the great work! ” see less

“Dear Eternity Tours, My family and I took the Vatican City Tour yesterday with Frederica. I hope I am spelling her name correctly. I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed the tour and how wonderful we thought Frederica was, as a tour guide. Her passion for the subject was evident, her patience with the questions was relaxing, and her sense of humor and lightness made the experience a delight. I would hope that you pass along this email to her and commend her for her efforts. Well done! Thank you and thank you, Frederica. ” see less

“Gregory was a great guide. I loved learning about the history and architecture, the tour was more informative than I ever expected. I liked that Gregory took the time to explain and show us little tidbits of history and trivia that we would not have gotten on our own, or with a less educated tour guide. His lecture style was well-paced, he did not rush through explanations, and was kind enough to answer any questions we had. We were delighted to learn Gregory would be our tour guide again for the Vatican tour. He did not disappoint us! Your company advertises it's emphasis on history, and it is true that Gregory did talk at length about the history of the Vatican, perhaps longer than average tour guides, but we enjoyed learning the history and liked that he took the time to share his knowledge with us, because seeing the buildings and works of art inside mean so much more when we know the background behind them. Additionally, his approach to guiding us was wonderful. He has a great lecture style--well-paced, easy to understand. Will definitely recommend him and your company to others visiting. ” 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 city and inhabit its constantly evolving history and traditions. They love to share their enthusiasm and knowledge for the city with you, covering all of its important sites and topics with an accessible and engaging approach.

We know that your time in Rome 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 itineraries, 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 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 Rome private tours and Rome group tours you avoid the lines at the Vatican Musuem, St. Peter's Basilica, Colosseum and Roman Forum.

Our group tours of Rome have a maximum of 7 or 13 people.

All of our guides are fluent in English and have a contagious passion for the rich cultural tapestry of Rome. They lead our tours of Rome 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 Rome private tours offer you our expertise to help you explore and experience the city and her treasures, discovering the impact and the meaning that they had at the time of their creation.

Our Rome group tours 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 this timeless city.

Our Rome tours 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 of Rome 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 Rome private tours 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 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 Rome tours 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. Only through an exploration of this other intangible city will the dead city of colossal architecture come to life and be truly meaningful.

Our Rome tours to participate in the political and artistic life of Rome 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 Rome private tours because a visit to Rome is a great opportunity to approach art and to appreciate it, to understand it and to be moved by it.

Our Rome 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.
