“Our trip to Rome, the Vatican and all the many sites we saw was amazing! Gregory-Michael was just as amazing!. His wealth of knowledge, understanding and familiarity with the sites and as importantly, how to get us to/from and into each of them was outstanding. With his background in architecture and his obvious love of the city we were given an opportunity to see and learn much about Rome in our very short time there. Our trip to and from Rome from our ship was equally enjoyable and educational. Our driver was willing to share his personal experiences about the areas we passed which made the scenery come alive. As with our trip to and tour in Florence, Through Eternity Tours was the best thing we did by far. Thank you so much for providing us two wonderful days of memories our family will treasure for many years!” see less

“Hello Costanza and all the wonderful people at Through Eternity Tours who made our Trip in Europe and specifically Florence so magnificent.! Costanza was absolutely delightful. Her knowledge and eagerness to share it with our family was all and more than we had hoped for. The city, of course was amazing and with Costanza assisting us through it we made the most of the all to short time we had to spend there. Costanza showed us little known (and likely seen) treasures - favorites of hers and now ours - throughout the city including a wonderful restaurant for our lunch! I know I will want to return to Florence so I can spend more time seeing the many things were were unable to see and learn more about this incredible piece of history. I have already given the Through Eternity name to several people who indicated they would be traveling overseas. If/when we have an opportunity to travel to Europe again - we will certainly use your company for our visit. Thank you, again!” see less

“Dear Through Eternity, Both my wife and I took the Forum & Coliseum tour with Cinzia. We do a lot of touring around the world and we found Cinzia extremely knowledgeable, interesting, professional and polite. My wife doesn’t like all the historical detail to the nth degree whereas I do like a fairly thorough understanding. My wife said Cinzia was one of the best tour guides she has experienced and I agree – I still had all my queries answered. Cinzia managed to keep the right balance. In fact my wife wants to do another one when we return in 2015. ” see less

“We had a wonderful tour with our guide Cinzia Cutrone. She was very professional, very knowledgeable and eagerly shared her love of Rome and the art it holds with all of us on the tour. She made the 5 hours fly by and I could have easily spent hours more listening to her talk about the artist and their art. I would definitely book again with Through Eternity and would absolutely take another tour with Cinzia....I wish I could take art appreciation classes from her. Thank you for a wonderful experience and beautiful tour. ” see less

“This tour was so amazing! I'm so glad we chose to do the earlier tour. It was worth it to be able to see the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel unpolluted with other tourists and to basically have the rooms to ourselves to enjoy. Katia was so friendly and had so many interesting stories/facts about everything we were seeing. I will definitely recommend this tour to everyone!” 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.
