This was the first morning that we ventured out in the rain. Of course, the trams were full so we squeezed into one and then walked to the Circus Maximus. This was where chariot racing took place. Our professor compared it to Bristol Motor Speedway ;) It was built in 326 B.C. I’ve been amazed at how well many of the structures in Rome are preserved.
After that we walked to the Roman forum and saw the Temple of Saturn, the Temple of Vesta, the Basilica of Maxentius.
Our final stop was the coliseum. My roommates and I had walked by it a couple days ago, but I had no idea what the inside would look like.
