About this area of Rome - Testaccio & Aventine Hill:

Built in the 6th century BC during the time of the Tarquins, the Circus Maximus
Before...

After...
, between the Palatine Hill and the Aventine Hill, was a track used primarily for chariot racing. It could seat 250,000 spectators. When the dark days of the 5th and 6th centuries fell, the Circus Maximus seemed symbolic of Rome's complete ruin. The last games were held in AD 549. The Circus Maximus was never used as a sports venue again, and the demand for building materials reduced it, like so much of Rome, to a great dusty field. The recent Live8 concert was held here.
The Terme di Caracalla
Baths of Caracalla
were built between 211 and 216 and were one of the most beautiful and luxurious public bath complexes in Rome. Equipped with sophisticated plumbing systems, the complex could hold up to 1,600 bathers. These baths were still in use in the VI century until the invasion of the Goths in 537 who destroyed their feeding aqueduct.
The Pyramid of Caius Cestius was built during the reign of the emperor Augustus, probably between 18 and 12 BC. It is a remarkable monument, made of white Carrara marble and exactly 100 Roman feet (30 meters) high. The peculiar concept of a pyramid
The Pyramid of Cestius
in Rome must be linked to the fact that Rome had conquered Egypt a few years before, in 30 BC, and the ancient culture of the new province became fashionable for a while. In the third century the monument was incorporated in the Aurelian Walls.
Orange Garden
The Giardino degli Aranci
(Giardino degli Aranci or Parco Savello) offers one of Rome's most picturesque gardens, with a beautiful view over the city. The citrus fruit plants in it were placed here in 1932 in commemoration of the Spanish orange tree brought to Rome by St. Dominic in 1220. This tree, according to tradition the first planted in Italy, still miraculously exists in the garden of the monastery of Santa Sabina and can be seen through a hole in the wall of the church portico.
Area highlights: Circus Maximus - Piramide - Terme di Caracalla - Parco degli Aranci

Insider's Tip:
