Circo Massimo

This oval basin, nearly 600 meters long, is almost entirely filled in with dirt. It was once a race track. It was made in the time of the Etruscan kings (presumably Tarquinio Prisco). Augustus adorned the brick structure with an imperial stage, which was rebuilt by Trajan, enlarged by Caracalla and restored by Constantine. During the reign of Constantine, the Circus could hold more than 200,000 spectators. Today only the outline remains (the area it occupied is now a public garden).

Largo di Torre Argentina
Corso Vittorio Emanuele

This archeological area was discovered in 1926-1930 during the works for construction of a new building. The name Torre Argenitna (Tower Argentina) derives from a nearby house of a 16th century bishop Hans Burckhardt from Strasburg (in Latin Argentorum), who called his residence Torre Argentina.
Largo Argentina was a kind of ancient Roman square with four temples facing a courtyard to the east paved with travertine, that is why it is also named Area Sacra (Holy area). Its origins come from the Republican epoch starting from the 4th century b.C

Piazza del Popolo
Via di Ripetta
Ara Pacis
Via del Tritone
Piazza della Repubblica

The Porta del Popolo on the north side of the Piazza marks one end, while the East is dominated by the passeggiata del Pincio.

The face of the piazza changed a great deal from the 1400’s to the 1800’s, with the reconstruction of the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, the placement of the Flaminian obelisk at the center of the piazza, and the addition of neo-classical elements by Giuseppe Valadier.
