“The Underground Rome tour was wonderful, so informative and I'm glad we chose it for our first day as Thomas's presentation was very helpful info to have with us through our adventures in Rome. Thank you Thomas, you were very patient and extremely knowledgable. Not only but thank you Katia for your kindness and warm generous spirit when we toured the Early Entrance Vatican. We truly felt like your little family! The heat and crowds had us ready to move on quickly at the end of the tour but the tour itself and your knowledge were so so informative and presented so graciously. Have recommended this tour several times since! We will return and next time for more Through Eternity Tours.” see lessOctober 09, 2015 Marilyn Mottola

“We took the Early Entrance Vatican tour with Cinzia. We were very happy with her. Her knowledge, communication and timing were far superior to a tour we had done several years ago. Starting in the Sistine Chapel is a must to avoid the crowds and have an opportunity to absorb and appreciate the significance of the room. Cinzia was flexible and knowledgeable about so much of the museum and Basilica that we were able to skip around the crowds and still see and learn as much as we could absorb. We would definitely recommend Through Eternity tours and Cinzia to anyone who is looking for a great experience at the Vatican.” see lessOctober 09, 2015 Maureen Hadley

“To the Through Eternity Team: First off, we had a wonderful trip to Italy. We will be back! And Through Eternity played a big role in making this trip so memorable. We took three of your tours - the extended Vatican tour with Laura, the evening walking tour of Rome with Mario and the Accademia/David tour in Florence with Ludovica. In each case, the tour guide was outstanding. They not only provided great insights into the wonderful things to see and the history of the respective areas, they were enthusiastic, passionated and very caring about those on tour. I have already made a posting to various travel sights telling folks that the money spent on a Through Eternity tour is money well spent. My wife and I cannot think of how the tours could have been better. Thanks for making our visit to memorable and we will be back!” see lessOctober 09, 2015 Tim and Patty Miller

“Federica is an amazingly gifted tour guide for the Forum, Palatine Hill and Colosseum with the underground and upper third tier. My wife Helen and I are still talking about the fabulous experience that Federica made happen through her enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable walk through these treasures of humanity. Federica answered every question and easily could delve into the details when asked. Her overview of these unique cultural sites left both of us with a feel that we had experienced them in the deepest and most lasting way possible in the limited time we had available. I would highly recommend Federica and this tour to anyone who wants to really understand the story behind the ruins. Luca was exceptional when he toured my wife Helen and I through the In-Depth Vatican Experience Tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to provide perspective and details beyond anything we could have hoped for. When my wife first saw the length of the tour she was concerned but the near 6 hours Luca spent with us touring these treasures of humanity melted away. As a Catholic, this was a meaningful pilgrimage and Luca provided an outstanding level of insight that was neither judgmental nor biased. The Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica were that much more amazing because of his insights. Thanks for the great and memorable times!” see lessOctober 08, 2015 Andy & Helen Hale

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.

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.

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
