One of the most alluring cities in Italy-and one of the most popular for visitors-is the capital, Rome. Another adjective frequently applied by Italians especially is also suitable: chaotic. Rome can be a challenge for visitors, in which case entrusting a tour company to organise guided tours is a great way to alleviate the stress of dealing with the crowds at the top sights. In the Eternal City, that company is Through Eternity.
Based here in Rome, this astute team of bilingual expatriates and dual nationals sees to it that their customers are thoroughly satisfied with the arrangements made on their behalf-not after the tour has finished in a typical feedback questionnaire, but rather before the tour has begun to ensure that the experience will be exactly as the customers want it to be. As in Florence, Naples, and Pompeii, Through Eternity affords its clients the opportunity to see Rome as used to be possible before the advent of mass tourism. This means, for example, offering private tours of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel-emphasis on private. Seeing the Sistine Chapel with few (or no) other people in the room is a luxury usually only enjoyed by the Pope and other high-ranking members of the Vatican government, but Through Eternity has the access that high-end travellers willingly pay for in order to have the special experience that makes a visit to Rome most memorable. Themed tours such as Nero's Rome or Caesar's Rome are among the most requested, though the whole point of a private tour is to completely fulfil the wishes of the client.
Not that only affluent travellers can benefit from the body of knowledge of Through Eternity's cultured guides; there are tours for every budget. The enjoyment of Rome's top attractions in the company of an educated guide-and no one else-can be provided by Through Eternity at a number of locations in addition to the Vatican-a behind-the-scenes tour of the Coliseum, for example, to see the innards of this gladiator battleground. The immensely impressive Villa Borghese is among Through Eternity's most-requested specialised tours, which offer insight into lesser-known places such as the little known Renaissance gem, Villa Farnesina. Of course any itinerary requested can be customised to suit the client. Insiders' shopping tours to the top boutiques in fashionable Rome are also possible. In fact, anything is possible; the company regards its tours as suggestions and gladly tailors them specifically to the individual visitor.
Through Eternity also provides visitors the opportunity to visit sights in the vicinity of Rome. A visit to the amazing Ostia Antica archaeological site is a breeze, as is a tour to Hadrian's Villa. Forget bus tours and inconvenient schedules, a private tour with Through Eternity will have clients picked up in a car at their hotel and taken to these places site with an expert guide.
