    The oldest and largest of Rome's ancient arenas, the Circus Maximus hosted chariot races from at least the fourth century BC. It was rebuilt by Julius Caesar to hold as many as 300,000 people.

    Huge stadium and must be a wonder in its time. It's hot when visited on midday. Best visit early in the morning or late afternoon.

    Not too much to see. A big plain where the chariot races used to happen. There's some remains left on one side. A good thing to see the proportions! 😀 Also there's a metro and tram stop to get here.

    There isn't much to see, but it's a big advantage to have seen the movie "Ben Hur". Coming from direction Colosseum, you can get some drinks at the upper end.

    a perfect getaway place to walk your dog or play some outdoor games. Picnic? I would suggest bring some wine, cheese and relax.

    The wide open expanse gives some impression of what a deathly spectacle this place must once have been

    This was once Rome's largest stadium (300.000 spectators) for horse and chariot races, athletic contests and wild animal fights. Great place for a picnic with family or friends on a sunny day!

    Its a great way to escape the masses of people. Not a lot to see from a tourist point of view, but it leaves much to the imagination.

    If you want to see how great was the Roman Empire just visit one of its astounding ruins.

    An ancient Roman Stadium in which chariot racing took place. This historic landmark is now a park open to the public.

    Runners beware - it is surprisingly difficult to jog around the Circo Massimo because of the gravel that covers most of the site.

    Not much left but buildings next to it are with it and give a nice vibe. Good place for a walk

    There's not much left except the depression where the circus once stood. If you're on a tight schedule, I'd skip this one.

    ローマ帝国時代に使われてた大競技場。今でもイベント等で使われることもあるそうだ。といっても実際行くと広大な敷地に何もない野原みたいなのが広がってるだけで、雑草もはえてます。そんな感じなので近所の小・中学生が「地域体験/清掃活動」などと称して草むしりに駆り出さされてる姿が目に浮かぶ。

    Al contrario di quanto alcuni dicono non è solo un "campo de tera", ma uno spazio verde nel cuore di Roma tra il Palatino e l'Aventino, dove echeggiano tempi di giochi e festa, da oltre 2000 anni.

    Per la vicinanza con il Tevere, fu sede di attività sociali come le corse dei cavalli e i giochi, sin dalle origini della città. Qui sarebbe avvenuto il noto episodio del ratto delle Sabine. Read more

    Qui si svolgevano le corse con le bighe riproposte in Ben Hur. Oggi è un grande prato con una vista mozzafiato sul Palatino specialmente al tramonto. Sul Circo Massimo si affacciano Bar e Pubs
