“I didn’t really realize what a benefit the Sistine Chapel morning tour was until we arrived there. To see the Sistene Chapel with minimal people was a highlight. Federica was very knowledgable and guided us through the museums and St. Peters quickly and with lots of information. We loved our tour and the small group size - we don’t know how we would have gotten anything out of doing it ourselves - the highlight of our trip! Thanks, ” see less

“I took the Exclusive Sistine Chapel before It Opens to the Public, Vatican Museums and St. Peter's on Apr 02, 2015 with Katia. She was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The most impressive part about this tour is her strategic planning. Not sure if she is the only one to do this (and if so, you should make the others do this), but she rushed us through the museums in order to get to the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel first in the tour and then double back to see the rest of the museums. This enabled my group of 4 total people to be in the Raphael Rooms ALONE and have less people in the Sistine Chapel than when a Pope is elected! This made the tour VERY special and one of the main reasons why I will be telling anyone that goes to Rome that this tour is the best and worth the money. Katia had an answer for every question and gave tons of descriptions of events and places so that we would get an idea of what we were looking at and the historical nature of what specific place we were standing at. ” see less

“The best tour I've been on during my trip in Italy. Having toured Pompeii and the Colosseum with the site-provided tours, my only regret is not booking these with Through Eternity. Vanessa was a very attentive, personal guide. Funny, with a wealth of knowledge that added meaning to the places we saw, particularly the Sistine Chapel. Have added my feedback also on Trip Advisor as it is a highly recommended tour. Thank you Vanessa and Through Eternity!” see less

“Please give our congratulations for the lovely tour we had with Maria Rosario. She did a lovely job explaining the features of the Coliseum and Forum and Capitoline museum and told us about Roman life in antiquity and my two sons (7 and 10) enjoyed it very much. Great to skip the queues as well! Maria Rosario was a lovely person and so helpful as we made our way through a busy Easter crowd. ” see less

“Please pass along our thanks to Guido for the great underground tour on a rainy Easter week-end. He made the tour fun for the boys (7 and 10) as well as for me and my wife. We loved walking along the underground Roman road and learning about what life was like in Ancient Rome. He also brough the Circus Maximus alive for us too. Thanks Guido!” 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 unmissible 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 7 or 13 people.

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 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.
