Hidden Churches of Rome (formerly "Sacrament and Sanctuary") was created circa 2010 for independent travellers to discover and explore the most beautiful places in Rome. Interestingly, these can be found in close proximity to tourist hotspots such as the Roman Forum and Colosseum, but only a few tourists seek them out. That could be down to lack of awareness, but let's not discount personal choice either. Tourists are often held back by not having enough time to see more than the highlights.

 In 2010, no other tour operator was interested in developing experiences that shied away from the main moneymaking attractions in Rome. Then, as now, we work differently. Offering tours that truly inspire has always been the Eternal Tours Rome way.

 Hidden Churches of Rome is one example of how important it is for us to show our clients the best of Rome ("best of Rome" is not, nor has ever been about shunting people between the Vatican and Colosseum via the Pantheon).

 That we include Colosseum entrance to conclude is a statement against tour operators that offer tours and activities solely for profit, rather than education and inspiration.

 Hidden Churches of Rome is a tour that has been tailored for individuals who abide by the required order of information gathering prior to arriving at a destination such as Rome. Read around the subject matter, familiarize yourself with the locality where your tour will likely be conducted, then book the experience. End game is acquisition of details and photographic opportunities that are never revealed outside high end private tours.

 You will visit seven ancient churches nestled in the heart of historic Rome. Some still stand upon original bronze age foundations, while others have helped us understand a great deal about mediaeval Rome.

 You will find yourself in three of Rome's oldest parks, namely Parco del Colle Oppio (Oppian Hill in antiquity, site of Emperor Nero's Domus Aurea and Emperor Trajan's Baths), Parco del Celio (Caelian Hill in antiquity), and Villa Celimontana.

 The churches you will enter are hidden in that they are rarely frequented by large tourist groups - St. Peter in Chains apart (San Pietro in Vincoli houses "Moses" by Michelangelo).

 Of all Rome tours that lay claim to an itinerary unlike any other, Hidden Churches of Rome is one of the first, if not the first to ever do so and deliver.




 Rated 5 / 5 by Christian D on June 7th, 2021  My important clients travelled from Chicago specifically for this tour and they were deeply impressed (I own a travel agency specializing in Rome, Italy destinations). Since then, we have added this tour and several others by Eternal Tours Rome to our highlight activities in Rome. One of very few tour operators in Rome that isn't lazy and just offers the same as everyone else. Many thanks to Peter for all he has done to get his brilliant tours out there!
