Then when you want you can visit the Stadium of Domitian. The Stadium of Domitian is hidden beneath Piazza Navona like some sort of buried treasure. With your Priority Entrance ticket you'll get to explore this subterranean space along with an audio guide. This is one for sports fans and history buffs. Learn about the development of the site into the current piazza and the evolution of ancient Roman sports. Hear how up to 30.000 spectators were divided at the arena. See artefacts from the days of the Roman Empire found during archaeological excavations, including fragments of sculptures and a torso made from Pentelic marble from the quarries of Penteli north of Athens.This unique UNESCO World Heritage Site was Rome's first permanent venue for gladiator games and competitive athletics.
