The virtual experience of the Circus Maximus was sensational! I was greeted by Marta, a sweet and cute girl who gave us instructions on how to use the viewer and what we would see! It was the first time I did a virtual reality and it was fantasticooooo !!!! The end? Unbelievable. I drove a chariot inside the amphitheater, under the eyes of the crowd and the emperor ... but I finished last! It truly feels like being there. Wowwwwww I would recommend it to everyone.

Wonderful experience with virtual reality. From Romano I could say that discovering the history of the Circus Maximus thanks to technology, allowed me to learn a lot and remember everything perfectly. I had no idea of the impact that Circus Maximus could have in the history of ancient Rome , even more relevant than the Colosseum itself. last part of the experience very engaging and fun, incredible the idea of videogame in virtual reality. I competed driving a quadriga and I finished second, The next I have to win the grand prize of 1 mil di sesterzi :) Thanks again.

The experience was great. I didn't think it was possible to relive the history of Rome in this way. It seems to be catapulted into that era when Romulus traces the borders of Rome, when the city begins to build itself ... and then the Circus Maximus. Wow guys this is spectacular !!!!! To be able to see from the inside how it was made, the spectators, to witness the emperor's entry. And we want to talk about the horse racing game at the end? Sensational!!! The day was wonderful. Time has helped to make that hour and a half pass perfectly. The guide was nice and very nice, he gave us all the information to use the viewer and all the information necessary for the tour. I would recommend it to everyone !!!!
