Via Appia Antica; Mausoleum of Romulus Reopens to the Public

Jump to last reply

This site is only a couple of 100 meters for the Catacomb of San Sebastiano, parts of the 'Villa of Maxentius' opened in recent years and this mausoleum is a nice addition.
But the big draw here is the 'Circus of Maxentius' which I believe is the best preserved ancient Circus in the World.
It is almost as long as the Circus Maximus and gives an excellent idea as to what the Circus Maximus once looked like except with seating on a smaller scale (10,000 vs 250,000) but everything else was there (starting gates, spina, judges & Emperor's box, etc).
