Circo Massimo Vacationing in Rome is like traveling through time. Wherever you go or wherever you look, you may encounter ruins from a different time period. Circo Massimo is one of them.
The Romans built the ancient hippodrome, originally called Circus Maximus, between the Aventine and Palatine hills. When the hippodrome is mentioned, only horse races come to mind nowadays; but in ancient times – folk dances and festivals were also held here.
If you remember, I talked about an obelisk while describing Popolo Square. This work was dismantled from the Circo Massimo during the reign of Pope Sixtus V.
Not much has survived to the present day from the hippodrome, which was the first of its kind in the Roman period. However, this situation does not prevent history buffs from coming to the historical area, which has been converted into a park.

Terme di Caracalla Another monumental building that Emperor Septimus Severus and his son brought to the capital is Terme di Caracalla. In other words, Caracalla Bath in our language.
Bath complex, M.S. It was built between 211-217. The fact that it was open to the public and free of charge was the biggest feature that distinguishes the building from most of its counterparts at that time. However, over time, it did not hesitate to add new ones to this feature. Because the bath is known as the largest and best preserved of those on the lands once ruled by Rome.
Although it has not preserved its integrity in terms of structure, its decorations allow the former beauty of the bath complex to be understood. Of course, after getting the clues, it’s up to your imagination.

Domus AureaM.S. In 64 B.C., there was a terrible fire disaster that caused Rome’s elite to lose their possessions. However, this situation provided the opportunity for Emperor Nero, who was an art lover and who knew no bounds to madness, to have the palace he had dreamed of. Thus, the Domus Aurea, or the Golden Palace in our language, emerged.
Nero’s palace of pleasure; The Palatine occupies the area between the Esquilline and Cello hills. Since I use the definition of “pleasure palace”, you may immediately have questions about what it is like. Let me answer right away. The Roman emperor, who determined to enjoy life as his primary aim, ordered that luxury be given importance in the construction of the palace.
What was the result? A structure has emerged, covered with ivory and marble on all four sides, with ceilings that allow guests to pour perfume and rose petals on it. Of course, importance was given to the garden as much as the interior of the palace. Many artificial lakes have been built around it.
