“I just wanted to let you know that this was by far the best tour we had during our trip to Italy and Paris. Our tour guide, Ulla, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed our tour of the Forum and the Coliseum immensely and that was in large part to the wonderful Ulla. Of special note, the extra images she brought along to show us really helped to bring the whole thing to life. Thank you so much for helping to make our trip so special.” see lessNovember 26, 2015 Gerald Rausch

“Caterina was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. On a professional level, she was excellent. She was very aware of our group and our interests. She also paid really great attention to other groups and made sure we got ample times in the main areas and did a great job moving us and the other group appropriately. We also throughly enjoyed her fun personality and willingness to tell us about Rome and give food recommendations. Having an Italian lead the group is a bonus and really makes the tour over the top. Through Eternity Tours was a recommendation to us and we will surely recommend again. ” see lessNovember 20, 2015 Michael & Whitney

“I am writing on behalf of my wife, Mary Dare, my son David Dare, and myself. All of us participated in two tours provided by Through Eternity, one of the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill, and one of the Sistine Chapel, St Peters, and environs. As it happened, on both occasions Luca was our guide — our good fortune! Luca was extremely well organized, friendly and polite. We had no difficulty understanding him; his English is excellent and without accent. His knowledge of the subjects was comprehensive and detailed, and he presented the information in a way that was interesting and engaging. His enthusiasm for the subjects also was obvious. Despite the fact that he gives these tours regularly, he never, ever appeared bored. We recommend Through Eternity Tours unreservedly and we extend our gratitude to Luca for doing a superb job.” see lessNovember 19, 2015 R. Mark Dare

“I am writing to thank you for yet another group of wonderful tours on our recent holiday in Rome. My daughter and I used your services last year in Florence and Rome and were so pleased that we advised our travel agent to recommend your company to any travellers she was sending to Italy. This year we toured the Capitoline Museums on October 20th, the Borghese Gallery and Love and Death: Scandals off the Beaten Track on the 21st of October. We were happy to have Luca as our guide for the Borghese Gallery as we had enjoyed his tour of the Forum and Colosseum last year. Again, all three young men who lead our tours were extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and attractive - Maurizio, Luca and Mario! If I am fortunate enough to return to Italy, I will definitely be contacting you again. In the meantime, I will be spreading the good word about your company!” see lessNovember 18, 2015 Janine Rous

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.

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.
