Circus of Maxentius (Villa di Massenzio) Tours

This remarkable palace dates back to the 4th century and is home to the most well-preserved racetrack in all of Rome. Travelers who make their way to this top attraction can see where chariot races once kicked off, and get a taste for regal Rome.

The complex and its buildings were built by the emperor Maxenitius, and include the tomb of Caecilia Metella and ancient catacombs. The site is particularly beautiful on Sundays when crowds are thin, but catacombs are closed.

Explore the site on a Vespa tour of imperial Rome or by Segway, golf cart or bicycle. You can also visit the site as part of a private tour of ancient Rome including skip-the-line tickets to the Colosseum and Bath of Caracalla.

Practical Info

The circus is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am until 4pm, and is closed on Monday. Travelers can access the Circus using the 118 bus from Piazza Venezia to Colli Albani.

The site is free to visit, and the last admission is a half hour before closing time.
