Diocletian’s Baths and Museum; Construction started on the baths in 298AD, astoundingly, it is believed that it took only 8 years to complete this massive building, the largest baths ever built in Rome. The church next door honours, in part, those who died building the...More

This is an excellent museum, but the VR presentation is poor quality. You get a much better idea of what the Baths once looked like by watching the video in the auditorium.

Once we found the entrance, we enjoyed visiting this example of Roman engineering and architecture. The entrance faces Termini Station (or if you are facing the church, enter on the right ride around the corner). There isn’t much signage directing you and the entrance itself...More

This was a very interesting location to visit to see some ancient Roman Baths. It was difficult to find the entrance, but we finally found a small sign on a fence, behind some stalls selling souvenirs. It was worth finding! And, once inside, we were...More

Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only

Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to
