“Thank you so much for a wonderful tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Angelo's ability to cater to all ages of our family group was impressive...not to mention his incredible art knowledge and his command of the English language. We took three Through Eternity tours while we were in Italy. All were outstanding. Angelo is one some of the best I have ever encountered. I have already recommended you to a number of people and will continue to do so. Many thanks, and all the best, ” see lessJune 30, 2015 Laurence Chase

“We have returned home after a 2 week vacation to Italy (Rome, Tuscany and Elba) and just wanted to let you know how wonderful our experience with your tours in Rome were. We were fortunate enough to have Eugenia for both the Roman Forum Tour and early Vatican Tour - she was just great! She was so knowledgeable on all the areas and made everything come to life for everyone in the group. We were particularly impressed with the way she managed to create such a good experience for us all, moving from shade to shade to talk to us and knowing just the right time to get into the Sistine Chapel to have time to look and gaze at all around us without crowds. Eugenia was so pleasant, kind and responsible and we would highly recommend her and your Tours to anyone.” see lessJune 30, 2015 Debbie and David Seekings

“This tour was amazing. The time flew by and I don't think our guide, Thomas, stopped talking at all. He managed to impart a wealth of information with a great ability to keep us interested, with a nice touch of humour here & there. The group size was perfect and the whole experience was fantastic. I would have no hesitation signing up to repeat the tour! Excellent!! ” see lessJune 25, 2015 D Heffernan

“Our day exploring the Forum, the Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum with Vanessa was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Vanessa was fabulous: knowledgeable, energetic, funny, and a pleasure to be with. Both my son and I are familiar with the sites we were visiting, and really wanted a guide who could deepen our knowledge. Vanessa was absolutely perfect in that regard. She really enhanced our entire vacation – for example, our visit to the Vatican museum, where we were on our own, was much more rewarding thanks to our discussions with Vanessa about Roman history and art. I should add that Pip and the entire Through Eternity Team made the process of selecting and arranging the tour incredibly easy. Thank you so much for all you did to make our trip to Rome wonderful.” see lessJune 25, 2015 Bart Aronson

“We recently took two tours with Mario - the food tour and the Borghese Gallery. We found Mario to be very knowledgeable about just about everything - Italian art, culture, food, politics, history and literature. His personality is delightful, and he could answer all questions. It was particularly wonderful sharing his enthusiasm for the Bernini sculptures at the Borghese. He is definitely an asset to your tours! Take care, Mario!” see lessJune 25, 2015 Terry S.

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.see less
