“We loved our tour with John Tinto on Friday 9/26. We were amazed at how much knowledge of art and history one man could have. More importantly, he knew how to share just enough for those of us that do not possess all of the background. It was fascinating. The equipment worked well (we were glad we didn't have to hold something to our ears the whole time.) Again, the tour content was fabulous, the group size was good, and we loved the amazing John Tinto. We will be in Florence with our daughter in March, and you can count on us looking up your tours before we go. Thank you. Also, is there some way for me to post a comment where others can see our total satisfaction? ” see less

“My husband and I absolutely LOVED our tour with Luca!!! We spent 5 nights in Rome, 5 nights in Florence, and 3 nights in Venice during our vacation ... we saw countless sites and beautiful artwork, went on numerous excursions, and did many amazing things --- but we both agree that our tour with Luca was our favorite part of our trip. I am not the biggest history enthusiast, but Luca had me very interested for the full 5 hours we were together. He had an excellent way of explaining the historical, archaeological and cultural impact of various ruins/buildings/pathways/etc. without making the experience dry or boring. And my husband, who is a huge and discerning fan of history and archaeology, was riveted! Since our tour, he has told me that "Luca is the man" numerous times. Luca's direct, archaeological experience with the Roman Forum is an amazing asset to Through Eternity customers, and his outgoing, sociable demeanor is an added bonus. The tour, itself, is wonderful as well. Starting at the Forum, working toward Palatine Hill and then capping the trip off at the Colosseum was a logical sequence. And, the 5 hours allotted was perfect. We never felt rushed and got to enjoy each part of the tour. The special access at the Colosseum was very awesome. Walking out onto the Colosseum floor, going underground and up top --- we loved every second and felt like special guests with our special privileges at an already-special place. My husband and I both came away from the tour with a great understanding and appreciation of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and Colosseum and would certainly recommend the tour (and Luca!) to others. Thank you Luca and thank you Through Eternity for an unforgettable experience. ” see less

“My husband and I were treated to an excellent, comprehensive and seriously interesting tour with Guido through the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Guido’s knowledge and his ability to impart that knowledge were truly the defining factor of this tour. It is wonderful to view these incredible sites but it is so much more rewarding to be immersed in the history and introduced to the people and practices of the time. We had a fantastic day and highly recommend Guido and Through Eternity. A word to visitors to Rome - don’t waste your time standing in line, book a tour.” see less

“We are all back in the states and reliving our adventures during our trip. I must say that we certainly consider our day spent with Ivana seeing Rome was a real highlight. Her passion, knowledge, and perspective on the sites and history were insightful and presented in such a way as to "bring ancient Rome alive". It was like travelling around Rome with a good friend as well which made it soooooo much fun. I laugh every time I think about our taxi ride just after we met at the hotel. We barely know each other, Ivana climbs into the back seat to give us more room and comments " I feel like the family dog back here". It totally cracked me up and set the tone for what was a great day. I am attaching a picture of our "team" taken in the Forum. We look like we have walked miles.....oh wait we DID walk miles! Hope Ivana had as much fun as we did and that she recovered from the cheese :)!! Cheers! ” see less

“Only recently a friend asked me to recommend a tour in Rome and this is one that immediately came to my mind. I want her to experience this tour with John just as we did. My family and I so enjoyed it! I can't make any suggestions for improvement. We learned so much from John and really appreciated his passion for Rome and it's history. I only hope she decides to register for this tour when she visits next Spring and will be able to enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you for a wonderful learning 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.
