Description

Circus Maximus is Rome's oldest and largest stadium. Some parts are made of stone and were built by Caesar in 46 BC, but it is believed that Circus Maximus was already used in Tarquini's time. Today not much remains of the stadium and area is used as public park. There is a special Metro stop, line A, called "Circo Massimo".
