“I am very happy to provide feedback on our Through Eternity Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel/St. Peter’s In Depth Experience – Wednesday, August 13 with Gregory. Through Eternity was recommended to me by a friend and I did additional research through Trip Advisor and Rick Steve’s Rome book. We had a wonderful experience. Through Eternity has a very professional website – easy to navigate – full of detailed information. The directions to the meeting point were perfect. Gregory and another Through Eternity representative were right on time – our group was small as advertised. Gregory’s background in art history and architecture made him a perfect guide for this once in a lifetime experience. His love and appreciation for the masterpieces we viewed were contagious. He spoke for 5 hours with no script. We learned so much and were so prepared when we entered the Sistine Chapel. I’m not sure how we could have had a better experience and we would highly recommend Through Eternity to our friends.” see less

“While I was in Europe, I did tours with a few different companies and the Through Eternity tour was by far the best. I was really impressed with the depth of information covered in the tour and the unique look at the areas we covered. I arrived for the tour not sure how I'd last the three hours, being incredibly overtired and not coping with the heat of the Italian summer but Thomas was so entertaining that I forgot about all that once the tour got underway. I could be totally confident in recommending Through Eternity for a great tour experience when visiting Rome. ” see less

“In July, we took two tours with Mario while in Rome, The Borghese Gallery and The Capitoline Museums. Both tours were delightful. Mario was extremely knowledgable about all aspects of the museums. His selections of specific art pieces to discuss, and the insights he shared were informative and interesting. We had a tour for only the two of us at the Capitoline. All you people out there will never know what you missed. Once again his knowledge of art, Latin, and history made the time fly and the memories stick! Both my 21 year old son and I marveled at the excellence of the tours. We heartily recommend Mario and the Through Eternity Tours! ” see less

“Our trip was wonderful. Our guide Patrizia was wonderful. We are so glad that we had this experience with a private tour as we gained so much knowledge and history about Pompeii. She made sure that we were comfortable and answered all our questions. My children ages 14 and 18 said that they enjoyed it so much more with a guided tour. especially with someone like Patrizia. She is very passionate about the country, history and overall experience. Please thank her again. She was a pleasure. ” 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.
