Longines Global Champions Tour announce this year’s Rome event will be staged at ancient Rome’s awe-inspiring Circus Maximus bringing horses back to the World Heritage site for the first time in over 2,000 years.
The magnificent ancient stadium, once used by Emperors for horse and chariot races, sits within the City’s UNESCO World Heritage site and will host top-level modern day show jumping for two weeks in September.
Circus Maximus sits beneath the famous Palatine Hill and is overlooked by the extraordinary ruins of the Imperial Palace. It is one of the most exceptional arenas for show jumping in the world today and is only one kilometre from the Colosseum where the gladiatorial games took place.
From 10 – 12 September and from 16 – 18 September Longines Global Champions Tour and the GCL team competitions will be held at the historic Circus Maximus and entry to the public will be free.
