Gladiators, horsemen help fete Rome's 2,767th birthday

Gladiators, horsemen and women with flowers in their hair brought history alive Monday at Rome's Circus Maximus where thousands gathered to celebrate the Eternal City's 2,767th birthday, AFP reports.

The event involving some 1,600 actors, which coincided with a sunny Easter Monday this year, is a major draw especially for tourists intrigued by Ancient Rome.

Gladiators did battle and women in period costume danced in the streets along a parade route across central Rome in the event organised by the Roman Historical Group.

Legend has it that the first king of Rome was Romulus, who founded the city on April 21 in 753 BC after a deadly dispute with his twin brother Remus.
