This is another great historical site in Arles. The city has many, but I have been to quite a few Roman baths, including the large one in Bath, UK, and I still found this one very interesting. It does cost to enter. They offer some information on the significance of Roman baths in daily life during that period, but it... More

Everytime I visit Europe, I like to see ruins and especially, I like to see ruins of baths. This place is well preserved and I enjoyed to walk around. There were some pictures to explain how to use the bath. The place is small and It takes only 10 - 20 min. to see.

This is a good example of ancient Roman baths, but if you have visited other Roman baths, this is not really worth the admission cost as it is small and much of the ruins are up to interpretation.

You can get a good overview of how the Romans used their bath houses as social meeting places when you visit and walk around the remains of these thermes. Much is left in evidence so you can see how the fires were lit that heated the area underneath the floors to provide an ambient temperature for the bathers who alternated... More

Interested as I am in Roman antiquities this was a wonder place to visit. One needs to reimagine how it was, best done with the model and actual lead pipes at the Antiquities museum. This is the real place.

These Roman baths were extensive with many pools and changing rooms according to the literature. We began to understand a little about how the baths operated, how the water was heated and flowed, but I still found it hard to exactly imagine what it would have looked line thousands of years ago.

Try to imagine this place when it was in use in ancient Roman times. Very interesting architecture. There are catwalks that take you from ground level (below the street) to up higher. To save a few Euros, we purchased a "passport" for Arles that allowed us to see three different sights. Our choice.

There not much left of the original baths so it takes a bit of imagination but what is left, is worth the visit. It's very interesting to see how the Romans used the baths and how far advanced their knowledge on this was. If you want to visit more Roman sights in Arles, get the passport which saves you a...

Enjoyed looking around the ruins of the Roman baths. Recommend it if you are into Roman history. Easily accessed from the Rhone river.

As most reviewers have noted, there is not much left of the original bath house that was built during the reign of Constantine, but what remains is certainly worth seeing (especially if you are interested in Roman history/architecture). What's left of the hypocaust make it clear where the floor once lay, and the dome at the front of the building... More
