Circus Maximus

Circus Maximus

Set between the Aventino and Palatine Hills, Circus Maximus may be little more than a grassy terrace these days, but at 600 metres long and 225 metres wide it was once Rome’s biggest stadium. As you take a sunset stroll, picture yourself there as one of the 300,000 spectators cheering as chariot racers speed past.
