“Dear Francesca, Vanessa, and Through Eternity: My wife and I had a great time on the tour of the Colosseum, The Forum, and Palantine Hill. 5 and a half hours went by incredibly fast. I wish I could remember 10% of the information we got during the tour from both Francesca and Vanessa. They did such a great job the rain didn't even slow us down! (We got lucky and had both of them for an 8-people, we broke up into 2 groups with Francesca leading our 4-person group). The books they had with the drawings of the buildings we were touring was exactly what I needed to see while looking at the ruins. I couldn't have imagined the grandeur and beauty from just looking at what is left at the site. However, when you see the drawings and you're standing there hearing all this information from your expert guides, you do get a glimpse into Ancient Rome. Pretty cool! Francesca is a fantastic guide and was great at answering all our questions, and getting a vast amount of information across to our small group. It made me want more time so we could go on the Vatican tour with Francesca, Vanessa, and your company. Unfortunately, September 25th was our last day in Italy, but fortunately, we chose to spend it touring Ancient Rome with Francesca, Vanessa and Through Eternity. It was a great way to wind up our two weeks in Italy! Again, just to be sure I get it across, Francesca and Vanessa were GREAT! Hope to be back in a year or two and do another tour with you. ” see less

“We were so pleased with our tour with througheternity of the Vatican in Rome. We booked online through a recommendation of trip advisor and set it up before we left. Thinking it was expensive, we realized the worth after walking past the huge line around the Vatican and being admitted in. The tour guide was acceptionally knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with for five hours. ” see less

“Our tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum with Maria was a wonderful experience. We were lucky to only have 4 people in our group so there was plenty of opportunity to customize our experience and to ask questions. The underground and upper tier of the Colosseum was really a treat and provided us with wonderful views of the city and a unique historical perspective of this fascinating monument. . Maria was a very conscientious guide, extremely knowledgable and very pleasant. This was my second time touring Rome with Through Eternity Tours and I was not disappointed.” see less

“Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback. We were in Rome after a cruise where we participated in several guided excursions. Without a doubt, Francesca was our favorite tour guide. Her knowledge and her ability to relate that knowledge in an interesting manner is exceptional. Her enthusiasm for the subject matter was also obvious. She was very tactful when providing information and answering questions. Her personality, wit, and intelligence were obvious and it was a pleasure to spend the time with her. I was in awe of the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica. What a great treasure! A big than you to Through Eternity tours and especially to Francesca for a wonderful 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 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.
