Explore and discover the real Roman legacy with Show Me Italy’s Ancient Rome tour! There is so much more to Ancient Rome that you can’t find in the history books. Take our guided Ancient Rome tour and you’ll have the opportunity to see and touch the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. Stand where the Roman’s stood, where the gladiators fought, where Julius Caesar was assassinated.



This tour of Rome’s Ancient City includes skip-the-line access and a licensed guide for the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. After arriving at the meeting point and getting acquainted with your guide, your tour begins with an introduction to the Colosseum. You will learn about the Colosseum’s incredible construction and why it is still considered an engineering marvel to this day. You will enjoy priority entrance; you will notice the Roman numerals above each archway as your guide leads you past the long ticket lines! You will explore the first and second levels of the Colosseum and your guide will bring to life the stories of the emperors, gladiators, and famous battles that make the Colosseum Rome’s most celebrated Ancient monument. You can take the private Colosseum arena tour on its own, and you can even opt for an express Colosseum tour if you’re in a hurry.

With your newly acquired expertise of the Ancient Romans, you will better understand and appreciate the second part of the tour – a walk through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. You will pass by the incredible triumphal Arch of Constantine as you learn the story of Rome’s birth and its legendary twins, Romulus and Remus. Once inside the Roman Forum, you will pass by the Arch of Titus, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the burial site of Julius Caesar — all standing on what was once a vast swampland. The tour will then continue to the Palatine Hill and you will see the ruins of the Imperial Palaces, the extensive grounds from which the Emperors would rule the city. Our Best of Rome walking tour is a great complement to this tour, as it covers all of the nearby parts of Rome, exploring the Trevi Fountain, Trajan’s Column, the Pantheon, and so many more of Rome’s hidden treasures.
