The roman circus

The stadium dedicated to chariot races was constructed inside the city limits in the 1st Century A.D.

It is the best-preserved roman circus in Europe as it still has 60% of its original facade intact and it is possible to walk through the long galleries under the public seating.

Efforts by the Town Hall in the last two decades have meant that a sector of the ancient curve has been revealed. It is without doubt the most captivating of the roman heritage monuments.

From the streets of the old town located in the interior of the ancient hippodrome, the visitor can observe the track area and the grandstands with their access, and even go inside the old shops under the vaults of the stadium.

The protagonists: Under a vault, two replicas of headstones evoke two charioteers who competed in the stadium almost two thousand years ago. They are Fuscus and Eutiches, rivals from different factions.
