A well preserved and presented mini museum. Two spiral metal staircases may put the less mobile off, but you don't have to go up. Guide brochure, included in the price, is quite good.

Well preserved Arab Baths and worth the 2euros and 15-20 minutes to look around. The frigidarium which contains an octagonal pool with pillars and arches is lovely.

We spotted this place on the way to the archaeology museum and thought we'd take a look. You can do the tour in a round 5 minutes but it only costs around 2 euros each so can't complain.

Lovely and according to my children, very much like the fountain that Moaning Myrtle lives in in the Harry Potter series.quite compact, but well worth it and not expensive.

I found it very interesting, but was wishing the pamphlet had a bit more historical information in it, in addition to the cartoons of ancient guys.... Walk slowly and notice the details as it will be over fast!

Like many others said, the Arab Baths are very interesting and worth a visit, but the visit will be a short one!

The place is cool and you can easily imagine how could be a relaxing bath there. The visit is very short, in 5-10min you're done, and the explanations of the placer are very short.

the arab baths are situated in a lovely secluded spot in the city and are well worth a visit.there is only a small entrance fee and is a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the city.this really takes you back in time,almost like roman baths.you can climb a spiral stairway on to the roof for some lovely views...

Misnamed, this little gem gives the visitor who has never seen a Roman bath a real idea of the layout and concept.
