“We took three tours with Through Eternity in May. Simply astounding! The Vatican and the Borghese tours, led by Caterina Panetta, were extraordinary. She was so capable of handling the inquisitive, the lingerers, the obsessed. Additionally she delighted in the art even though she’s seen them over and over again. What a treat! Thank you. ” see less

“ We did the colosseum tour with Vanessa. First of all I have to say we absolutely loved her. She is very knowledgeable, professional, kind and her English is perfect. She answered all questions, showed us lots and lots of material how everything used to look like and was always attentive to every single person in the group. We have had a Vatican tour the day before (through a different company which I would never choose again) and that really showed us how great Through Eternity Tours are. Would highly recommend it.” see less

“Our tour was wonderful and Maurizio was an excellent guide. The main reason we signed up for the tour was because it was my son's first trip to Rome and he studied ancient Rome this past year in school (we knew this day would be the highlight of the whole trip for him, and it was). We were so happy that we signed up for such an in-depth tour as there was still so much that we did not know ourselves! We were a little put off by the headsets at first, but they turned out to be very useful and we were glad to have them after all. Best wishes for continued success! ” see less

“Our tour of the Vatican with Maurizio was incredible in every way. Through Eternity has done a tremendous job of hiring only knowledgeable, degreed guides who speak English but are passionate about their job and their city! Maurizio is a superb teacher and we learned more history and what to look for in art than we have learned before and it made the rest of our trip in Italy that much richer because we knew a bit more about interpreting art. Thank you in every way and please give him a bonus! We had another fabulous tour with Ivana - she, like Maurizio, was very well trained, her English was superb, and she was passionate and knowledgeable about her subject. She really brought ancient Rome to life for us and we could imagine a little what their lives were like, especially around the Forum and Palatine Hill. We would book another tour immediately with her and we will certainly tell all of our friends about your company, and Ivana in particular! We learned so much and it also helped with the rest of our visit in Italy because we had a greater understanding of what we had come to see. Thank you!” 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.
