Circus Maximus – Rome

The Circus Maximus  is an ancient Roman chariot-racing stadium and mass entertainment venue in Rome, Italy. 

It measured 621 m (2,037 ft) in length and 118 m (387 ft) in width and could accommodate over 150,000 spectators.

Julius Caesar‘s development of the Circus, commencing around 50 BC, extended the seating tiers to run almost the entire circuit of the track, barring the starting gates and a processional entrance at the semi-circular end.
