"Circus Maximus: Relax with the locals!" Circus Maximus Tip by wilocrek

Circus Maximus, Rome: 43 reviews and 68 photos


The Circus Maximus has quite a different look now then it did back in its glory days when the elite of Rome would gather and cheer on their favorite team color. Today its a quiet place to relax in the sun or to get some exercise jogging around the track where horses galloped furiously with chariots in tow. Located right behind Palatine Hill, this is a nice place to take a break after visiting the Coliseum and the Roman Forum. Its rarely crowded and you will mostly see locals jogging or having picnics. Get away from the tourist madness for a little while and take in the peaceful atmosphere of the Circus Maximus.
