Eternal City Tours

Welcome!

This home page contains everything you will need to know to help you navigate through the pages in search of a tour that fits your interests! If you are new to ECT, check out the feature article written about our group in the National Catholic Register.

ECT offers quality private tours with the mission of bringing people a better understanding of their cultural, artistic, and religious heritage. Whether it be hearing the stories of Julius Caesar and the emperors that followed him, or visiting the sites of early Christian martyrdom and burial; experiencing the great Renaissance masterpieces of Michelangelo and Raphael, or discovering the amazing Baroque works of Caravaggio and Bernini—ECT is available to make your visit to the Caput Mundi all the more meaningful with private tours at some of the most competitive rates.

NEW THIS YEARECT is offering guided tours of POMPEI—the devestated city near Naples. When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in August 24th 79 AD, the entire town was smothered by fiercely hot volcanic ash which preserved the town as you see it today. Pompei was discovered in 1748 and today offers tourists a keen insight into a Roman Imperial town. For great reading on Mt. Vesuvius, see National Geographics ngm.com/0709. For tours of Rome and Pompei, contact us.

If you are new to travel in Italy, read the 'travel tips' section so you know what snags and problems to watch out for.

Off The Italian Peninsula

An old tour guide for Eternal City Tours, whom some of you may have had in the past, is responsible for many of the photos on our website. Australian Nick Leonard and his wife Wendi have been traveling around the world for the past few years. To see some wonderful photographs, see his still increasing collections at Flicker. As for literature, read Nick's book 'Through Eternity' which is the fruit of many journeys. Feel free to contact us for information on ordering a copy.

Place Of Reference There are seemingly countless new discoveries each week concerning archaeology. It's no secret Rome is a major player when it comes to piecing back together the fragments of history and religion. A great source of insight is the Biblical Archaeological Society. They contain great articles on Rome and also the place of greatest historic importance: Jerusalem.

Father Of All Tour Guides If you're looking for some fulfilling reading, see Jerome Murphy O'Connor's work entitled St. Paul:A Critical Life. Stationed at the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, O'Connor, an Irish Dominican with an enormous Corpus of Credentials , has been teaching for many years (our own professor graduated under O'Connor!) and giving tours of the Holy Land for diplomats and theologians alike. He has written numerous works, one of which is the Oxford Archaeological Guidebook to the Holy Land.
