  • One of the most well preserved hippodromes of the Roman Empire. Incredible!
  • This big arena for chariot race can be seen just after you pass the arch of hadrian. Both inside and outside of the arena is good to take many memorable photos. It says over 15,000 ppls can watch the races at that time. But now only one side is rebuild as original. I went up of the spectators seating area, i could see all over the race track. Its great view.
