Six years of excavations have given Rome a new tourist attraction in the Circus Maximus, the sprawling valley where chariot races once delighted the ancient city's denizens.Starting Thursday, the public can see ancient latrines, chunks of what was once a triumphal arch honoring the Emperor Titus, and learn about a winning horse dubbed Numitor, which ran on the oval track some 2,000 years ago.Claudio Parisi Presicce, Rome's top official for archaeology and other monuments, said Wednesday that Numitor the horse will become the logo for Circus Maximus, which sits in a valley between the ancient Palatine and Aventine Hills.Rome isn't the only Italian city with ancient roots boasting of new archaeological possibilities for tourists.
