Sala del Circo Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The Circus room in the Villa Romana del Casale was originally a gymnasium. The mosaic decoration reproduces the setting of a circus that has been identified as Rome's Circus Maximus. The theme illustrated here is the quadriga race that signalled the end of the festivities held in honour of Ceres, goddess of the harvests. The guest rooms open onto the northern side of the peristyle. These are reached through a vestibule whose decoration depicts the lady of the house. Note the oven in the former kitchen.
