Circus Maximus What visitors see today is a large oblong field that modern-day Romans go for walks in. But Circus Maximus today is not so very different to what the ancient Romans saw when they first started to use this small valley between two of Rome’s hills, the Palatine and the Aventine, for…

The chariot racing arena of the Circus Maximus is as old as Rome itself. The scene of the Rape of the Sabines, organized by Romulus to bring women to Rome, it has since become the quintessential symbol of sports, religious celebrations, and games in the city of Rome.

Circo massimo Ancient Roman stadium for chariot races. Today a park where you can relax on the grass and imagine the sound of horses' hooves vibrating on the ground. It keeps the ancient form intact if viewed from a distance.

Remember Ben Hur? Well, that's the arena where he used to ride his truck. Not much remains, as it is still mostly underground, but it is worth a visit

Point of Interest
“The Baths of Caracalla (Italian: Terme di Caracalla) were the city's second largest Roman public baths, or thermae, likely built between AD 212 and 217, during the reigns of emperors Septimius Severus and Caracalla. They were in operation until the 530s and then fell into disuse and ruin. The bath complex covered approximately 25 hectares (62 acres). The complex is rectangular, measuring 337 by 328 meters. Several million bricks were used in the construction. The baths contained at least 252 columns, 16 of which had a height of over 12 meters. The "baths" were the second to have a public library within the complex. Like other public libraries in Rome, there were two separate and equal sized rooms or buildings; one for Greek language texts and one for Latin language texts. The baths consisted of a central frigidarium (cold room) measuring 58 by 24 m (190 by 79 ft) under three groin vaults 32.9 m (108 ft) high, a double pool tepidarium (medium), and a circular caldarium (hot room) 35 m (115 ft) in diameter, as well as two palaestras (gyms where wrestling and boxing were practiced). The northeastern end of the bath building contained a natatio or swimming pool. The caldarium had seven pools, the frigidarium four, the tepidarium two. Next to the caldarium were saunas.”

Scenic Lookout
“The Orange Trees Garden (Italian: Giardino degli aranci) is the name used in Rome to describe the Parco Savello. It is about 7,800 square meters and is located on the Aventine Hill. The park offers an excellent view of the city. The garden, as it is today, was designed in 1932 by Raffaele De Vico. It was constructed to offer public access to the view from the side of the hill, creating a new ‘’belvedere’’, to be added to the existing viewpoints in Rome from the Pincian Hill and the Janiculum. The garden, whose name comes from the many bitter orange trees growing there, extends over the area of an ancient fortress built near the basilica of Santa Sabina by the Savelli family between 1285 and 1287, which, in turn, was built over an old castle constructed by the Crescentii in the tenth century. A few steps from the Orange Garden, you will find a great surprise. From the keyhole of a historic building, you will be able to see the dome of St. Peter. The gate from which you can enjoy this view is inserted in the structure of the villa of the Priorato di Malta which overlooks the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta. The villa stands on the area that was a Benedictine monastery founded in 939 which passed to the Templars in the twelfth century but was stolen by Clement V and finally seized it in 1400 by Pope Paul II who granted it to the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.”
