Roman Entertainment
The Colosseum and Theaters
Chariot Races
The Circus Maximus
Roman Baths

The ancient Romans enjoyed many different kinds of entertainment. Entertainment was essential to daily life in Ancient Rome. Most events were free, which meant poor people could attend as well as the rich. The government made most of the events free so that the poor could attend. Because they attended these events, they remained happy. As noted by Juvenal, it seemed that all Romans were interested in was "bread and circuses."  And with theaters, amphitheaters, circuses, and public baths galore, the Romans never seemed to get bored.
