---------------------------------------------
Circo di Massenzio

Built in the 4th Century CE this race track is less iconic but more intact than the Circus Maximus. It was built by the Emperor Maxentius for his own private use. Shortly afterwards Maxentius was defeated by his brother- in-law Constantine, so the racetrack was never fully completed. The racetrack is the largest and best preserved feature of Maxentius’ complex which included an imperial villa and a mausoleum built for his son Romulus.

Valerius Romulus was only fifteen when he died yet despite his young age he had served as consul along with his father a year prior to his death. After his death not only did Maxentius build this lavish mausoleum but he also deified his son, building a temple in the forum dedicated to him. The temple remains intact in the forum and is distinguishable because of its rusty green doors and rotund shape. Unfortunately the mausoleum is not open to the public but you can see the ruins from the racetrack.

Information in the form of a map is available at the ticket office and there are information posts around the site. Although the Circo di Massenzio is smaller than the Circus Maximus it is much easier to imagine the scale, not only of the racetrack, but of the Emperor’s power and wealth.

Opening hours: 9am-1pm (closed Mondays)

Ticket prices: €4/€2 for EU citizens 18-24.

Free for EU citizens under 18 years and over 65.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basically, like having your own personal tour guide May 17 2012
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
A great travel guide! The author, Elinor, knows Rome well! She offered a great local's view of the city, including some awesome restaurants / attractions that I'd certainly never have found on my own. Really clear directions and maps for getting around the city, too...
