While on our tour of Ephesus, we saw the Stadium where chariot races were held. With our guide's descriptions, we were able to visualize the cheering crowds, the sounds of the chariot wheels racing below, and the chaos that often accompanied fights, wrecks, and heckling crowds.

The Stadium was renovated, and modern concerts were given here. However, the noise from the speakers caused damage to the ruins, so they had to quit having such concerts. This Stadium seat 30,000 people!
