Circus Maximus - Via del Circo Massimo - FURTHER INFORMATION

Circus Maximus - Via del Circo Massimo - Rome visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Circus Maximus - Via del Circo Massimo' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Roma.

The Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) is now an elongated open space, mostly used for walking dogs. Very little remains of the arena that used to be able to seat 300,000 spectators who gathered to watch chariot races. It was said that almost the same number again would watch the races in the Circus Maximus from the surrounding hills. This is a sad end for an arena that has a history dating back to 600 BC, when the Etruscan Kings held games here.

There is more information about the history and structure of the Circus Maximus on the page with a panoramic photograph taken from with the Circus Maximus itself.

From this vantage point in a lay by off the Via del Circo Massimo you can clearly see the Palatine Hill and the ruins of the Palace of Domitian rising up beyond the North side of the Circus Maximus. On the other side of the road is a statue.
