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

Having seen and loved walking through the Baths of Caracalla, outside Rome, my wife and I had context and appreciation for this much more modest version, right off the Rhone, and an easy walk from anywhere in the old town. Catwalks let you go high and low, and allow you to absorb the atmosphere, and surroundings: imagine the place when... More

A little imagination is required for this one. Not our favorite Arles site but worth seeing. There is no doubt that at one time this was a spectacular facility. The Romans even heated the walls of some portions of the structure. What you see today is only a tiny fraction of what the baths once were. Even that tiny fraction... More

About two and a half rooms remain from the originally huge Baths of Constantine. It is possible to see some of the heating chambers for the pools above.

The Romans were sophisticated! You can visit part of the ruins of the ancient public baths, and make sure you read the explanations posted at the entrance. You can probably see most of it from the outside, but buying a Liberty Pass (9 eur) is worth it if you have time to visit at least 4 attractions in town.

I looked at this Roman bath from the sidewalk. Being that I have seen this type of structure I saw no reason to pay a fee to look inside as one can see most of it from the outside.

Anyway a beautiful ruin, but at the moment transformed by one of the few contemporary art projects that work and add to the magic. Look for yourself, it is eerily blue and to me is about manifolds and the new organic view of architecture. Best admired with the help of a few glasses of the great local wines (no matter... More

I enjoyed that I pretty much had the site to myself, not a very crowded tourist spot. The nominal 3 euro admission charge was worth the it. The site is rather small so you do not need to dedicate much time to this stop. Alternatively, you can peek inside through the external gates surrounding the bath for free.

You can see how sophisticated the spa was under Constantine and anyone could go here, only a small amount of the original still stands but it is very impressive.
