“We would like to say thank you to Eternity Tours for providing us an amazing day while in Rome. Our tour guide Gregory-Michael was the most amazing individual and guide. We cannot tell you enough how fun and educational it was to spend the day with Gregory. His personality, knowledge and genuine love of the history and material was so evident during our tour, that we cannot express in enough words how fantastic our day was with him. I have to tell you that we purchased two additional tours through different guides while in Italy ; one for the Vatican and One for Florence – both of them were all day tours and to be honest we continually were wishing that Gregory was our guide for all as we found nobody else we ran into or dealt with had his knowledge, passion and personality. My wife, I and the children did not just get a tour with Gregory we received and real high quality education while in his care. We cannot thank you enough for providing his time as our guide on our tour of the ancient city, palatine hills, forum and coliseum. We will remember his contribution to our trip for many years to come and would actually like to stay in contact with him as I think we developed a friendship at the same time. Please tell Gregory for us that he truly made a difference in our lives with his knowledge and he made our trip to Rome so enjoyable that we will remember this forever. As a matter of fact we educationally put some missing pieces of the world history together more clearly through Gregory’s teaching and now better understand how things happened in the world that we feel we received a college level course education in one day. I had three college students in our family on the trip and they were so enriched by Gregory’s teaching that they has said that this was more educational than a semester of course work. We would also like to say that Gregory is a wonderful person as we could tell that he is a kind gentle soul who is highly educated and deeply spiritual whom lives his passion. No other tour guide will ever compare to the experience we obtained by his presence and time. We feel very fortunate and lucky to have had him as our guide for the day. ” see less

“This tour (Vatican) was amazing! There was so much to see but Cinzia chose the most important works to discuss. The headphones were key in such a busy site. The tour seemed longer than 3 1/2 hours because there was so much packed in. I will highly recommend this tour. We loved the Twilight tour and Mario was a great guide. It was full of fun facts but also provided lessons in history. I am torn whether I would have preferred to have headphones to hear the information better, but not having headphones made us interact and stay closer as a group. I will highly recommend this tour!” 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.
