 Let's turn back the clock to 2008. We were first out of the blocks with private tours in Rome that no one else was even thinking about, let alone offering.

 We're happy to report that in all the years since then, our private Rome tours haven't really changed, they are still the best out there. Inevitably, there are ten times more tour operators these days, but travellers look for original experiences, not copies.

 We are very proud of our private artist tours that explore the lives and works of such luminaries as Bernini, Raphael, Caravaggio and Michelangelo.

 Travellers come to Rome from all four corners of the globe to take private tours led by Eternal Tours Rome guides. The experiences we created have influenced countless Rome tour guides and tour operators. If you want to take one of the original private tours in Rome, you're in the right place.


 Touring the ruined city of Pompeii from Rome is now easier than ever before. Our half and full day trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Vesuvius from Rome city centre (Roma Termini) offer great value for an even greater experience!

 Reach the ruins by bullet train and return to Rome the same way - in real comfort. Pompeii and Herculaneum are incredible archaeological jewels in their own right, while Vesuvius is known by all as the sleeping giant. Visit one, two, or all three sites in one day with us.


 Our day trips from Rome will change the way you see Italy! Understand the profundity of Italian culture in the Renaissance jewel city of Florence, or perhaps Naples, our favourite getaway from Rome.

 Closer to home you can explore fairytale castles, closed vineyards, and archaic shrines hidden away in unspoiled Roman countryside. If the Tyrrhenian sea and coastline or inland lakes and waterfalls are interesting for you, we will take you there.


 Our shared Rome tours include the Colosseum Arena Floor and visit many underground sites in Rome.

 Colosseum underground tickets are a very difficult commodity, and worth more than their weight in gold. It's zero availability versus the entire world wanting in. We offer an underground tour of the Colosseum on request. If you want to book it, please notify us well in advance of travel date.

 Even Colosseum Arena Floor tours have become scarce in recent years. First entrance through what is known as Gladiator Gate, directly to the arena floor, is what we can always do in the Colosseum.


 The Vatican City is a beautiful place and you will find everything you hoped for inside the Vatican Museums, St. Peter's Basilica, and at the top of St. Peter's dome. The vast number of Vatican tours and activities online, however, can confuse. It's easy to choose the wrong tour or tour operator.

 We try to simplify the process of booking the right Vatican City tour. Right meaning no big groups, no waiting around, and no overcharging. With this in mind, we offer three curated Vatican experiences.

 The first is an adventure, a treasure hunt in search of hidden Vatican secrets; the second, a castle / museums combo, while the third climbs the dome.

 It's important to plan ahead and get up-to-date local information about everything Vatican. Please read our Vatican tours articles or contact us if you need advice.
