Difficult to get a true impression of the circus because the surrounding buildings have encroached so much. There are bits of wall here and there so it's hard to appreciate the scale of the original

Starting at the circus, sadly truncated by more recent over-building, the curators try to make up for the history of disrespect for Roman history with really quite good artists’ impressions and useful explanation.
