The Circus Maximus

Useful tips

  • If there’s a chance of rain on the day of your visit, bring a raincoat or umbrella. Also, take into account that guided tours might be canceled on such days.
  • Access to the park is free and it’s open to the public at all times. It’s a perfect spot to take a break and enjoy a little picnic.
  • If you’re curious about what the stadium used to look like, we recommend you buy tickets for the Circo Experience . This is a 40-minute guided tour around the ruins and uses virtual reality and augmented reality to bring the monument to life.
  • If you also want to visit the archeological part of the Circus Maximus , you can buy a two-in-one ticket that includes the entrance, plus the Circo Experience.
  • Tickets can also be purchased via phone, a ticket counter on Viale Aventino, and several tourist info points. Here you can check out the points of sale and visiting guidelines .
