“We really enjoyed our tour in Florence with Fabiana. Her love for Florence and her passion for its history and art were inspiring and made the tour so enjoyable. Fabiana walked us through the streets of Florence pointing out buidlings and places of interest and local artisans creating art and wares in traditional ways. She guided us through the Accademia and the Uffizi showing us the most important pieces and details of artworks that we would never have noticed. For people with a great interest in Florence but a very limited time, this was an excellent way to get a real taste of this beautiful city. ” see less

“My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful two-week stay in Rome. We took two Through Eternity tours on the recommendation of a friend: a 5-hour tour of the Vatican (early morning entry) with Cinzia, and the 5-hour tour of the Colosseum with Caterina. Both were fantastic and gave us an experience in those sites that we would never have been able to have on our own. Aside from skipping the lines and getting into areas not open to most, the knowledge of both tour leaders added so much to our appreciation of what we were seeing. On the Colosseum tour, our group with Caterina was joined at times with another Through Eternity group led by Luca who was also fantastic. His passion for his subject made the gladiators & crowds of ancient Rome come alive. Many thanks!!” see less

“We had a great time at the Forum Romanum and the underground Colosseum. The tour was rather expensive in comparison to other agencies but was really worth its money. The small group , the close and personal attention of the guide Francesca and the special "not for everyone" spots of the Colosseum where the guard had to let you in with a key, made the whole tour very special. The guide Francesca was " super, wonderful , friendly , intelligent and just great" , as my two sons (12 and 16) said. I would advise everyone to book this tour, because it really made our three day holiday at Rome an unforgettable experience.” 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 italian cities and inhabit their constantly evolving history and traditions. They love to share their enthusiasm and knowledge for their cities with you, covering all of its important sites and topics with an accessible and engaging approach.

We know that your time in Italy 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 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 unmissible 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.

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 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. 

Our private tours of Florence are a journey into the Renaissance, to discover the ideas, passions, and inventions that characterized the time of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael. 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.
