Our Story

We set out in 2008 with tours of Etruscan and Pagan Rome (outside the city). Anzio beachhead battlefield tours came next when we merged our Anzio Tours website with Eternal Tours Rome. A slew of unique private tours were built in 2010, some of which covered underground Rome, others visited locations painted by Dutch and Flemish Masters when they lived in Rome, yet more explored Roman Cults, one example being a full day tour of Mithraism in ancient Rome. Since then we have expanded our repertoire and at time of writing there are 20 tours available and twice that number in development.


Our Guides

We have our own expert licensed guides, all of whom are either archaeologists or historians with specializations which correlate precisely with the tours they lead for Eternal Tours Rome.


Touring Rome 101

Booking directly with a local tour operator as we are is vital. It directly supports those of us who personally create tours and experiences for travellers with no middlemen, i.e. corporates at the top of Google and Bing: GetYourGuide, TripAdvisor, Viator (OTAs - "Online Travel Agencies"). These are NOT tour operators, they are cleverly branded resellers taking upwards of 30% per booking. Don't be fooled and please avoid them. Local tour operators can be found from Google page 2. Ignore the adverts (OTAs). GetYourGuide, TripAdvisor and their ilk have no right to trade off the back of others. A tour should be an experience, not a process. Last word about the intrinsic value of booking private tours: why leave home, take a return flight and book hotels for a $100 group tour?
