The Circo Massimo - Mouth of Truth Stop will take you near two of the top-rated sights in Rome.

You can find the Bocca della Verità on the façade of the Chiesa di Santa Maria. Legend has it that if you put your hand inside and tell a lie, it will snap shut and eat it. It is one of the most popular attractions in the city! Will you dare to find if it's true?

On the other hand, when you approach the Circo Massimo and see a large green area, you will be on the remains of the most famous circus in Rome. Here the sport competitions of the Empire were held. Of all the modalities, chariot races were the most popular. Up to 250,000 spectators attended these shows! From this point you can enjoy magnificent views of the Palatine Hill.

The Domus Augustea and the Baths of Caracalla are also in the area. We suggest you make sure to visit the panoramic garden of Giardino degli Aranci. Enjoy the amazing views over Rome!
