Aventine Hill and Churches · Circus Maximus · Garden of Oranges · Aventine Keyhole

The Circus Maximus was the largest stadium in Roman Empire. Ancient Roman charioteers raced before huge crowds: Circus Maximus could accommodate at least four times more people than the Colosseum, up to 200,000 spectators! It hosted also religious ceremonies, recitals, beast hunts and gladiator fights. The huge site is now a public park.

It is located in a valley under the Aventine hill, one of the most exclusive and tranquil places in Rome, dotted with elegant houses and pine trees. There are some beautiful churches and basilicas here, as St. Bonifiacio e Alessio, St. Prisca, St. Anselmo, whom construction range from middle-age to XIX century.

The main attraction is St. Sabina though, the oldest extant Roman basilica in Rome that preserves its original colonnaded rectangular plan and architectural style. Its decorations have been restored to their original restrained design as they were in 432 AD, when the Basilica was built. Then we walk to the Aventine Keyhole, where you’ll find a gorgeous view of St. Peter’s Basilica from a tiny hole in a garden door. The final stop of the tour is the Garden of Oranges, a romantic park with enchanting views of Rome.
