The Circus Maximus in Rome (Italian: Circo Massimo) is an Ancient Roman tourist attraction located in the heart of the Eternal City, between the Aventine and Palatine hills. This ancient entertainment stadium was the biggest in Ancient Rome and its Empire, measuring 621 metres in length and 118 metres in width and was able to accommodate an astounding 150,000 spectators. Its main use during Ancient Roman times was as a chariot racing stadium but it was also home to various other kinds of sports and athletic competitions, as well as religious and general events. Today the space is a public park and interesting place for a tranquil walk and stroll, as well as a ground for some large concerts, like Genesis in 2007.
