The Roman Circus was a large open venue used for public events in the Ancient Roman Empire. It was one of the main entertainment sites of the time. Chariot races, horse races, important events of the Empire and even reenactments of naval battles were held here. There is not much left of Milan’s Circus now, only one of the alleged two twin towers (the other one is ruined). This tower, square in shape, was transformed into a bell tower of Maggiore Monastery in the 8th -9th century. It is located in the yard of the Archeological museum along with the only existing defensive tower of the city walls.
