Circus Massimus (Circo Massimo)
About Circo Massimo
The Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) is an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium and mass entertainment venue located in Rome. Situated in the valley between the Aventine and Palatine Hills, it was the first and largest stadium in ancient Rome and its later Empire. It measured 621 m (2,037 ft) in length and 118 m (387 ft) in width and could accommodate at about 150 000 spectators. In its fully developed form, it became the model for circuses throughout the Roman Empire.
Now you could see very few remains there. The site is using as a public park now. The Circus still occasionally entertains the Romans; being a large park area in the center of the city, it is often used for concerts and meetings. The Rome concert of Live 8 (July 2, 2005) was held there, as was the Italian World Cup 2006 victory celebration.
