Of course, you see only the ruins, but the museum helps flesh out how vast they were and the incredible decoration that went into them. Up to 3000 people could bathe here at one time! Hard to fathom the building effort involved.

If you expect to see baths and how the looked and were maintained in ancient time, big disappointment as you will only see a film replica of how they should looked. But, as museum, full of statues, the first floor and the inner court are delightful. As for baths, you can only see where they were located, more interesting is... More

This place is much bigger than you 1st think. The baths area is just a small part of a big area with an awesome museum. Everything was in English. A trip here gives you a LOT of information to think about and it answered many of our small questions from our visits to the main big attractions in Rome.

It was mainly a museum with a small section about the baths- there was a video on a big projector screen which gave the most information about what the baths looked like but other than that it was just a museum and Henry Moore exhibition. The museum was a nice one though, quite modern light and spacious. Only cost us... More

I just cannot understand how these huge structures were built with using only basic hand tools and physical labor. Plus, how have these structures survived all these years? The bricks and mortar look like they were just built. The Romans were engineering geniuses. Fascinating and well worth a visit. Entry was included in the price of the National Roman Museum,... More

The part of the Diocletian Bath that I viewed was free to see as it was in a subterranean part of the Exedra Hotel where we stayed while in Rome. One can view it by looking through a glass window in the floor.

The size of the bath house was incredible. There is a film that plays so you can see images of what it was like in all it's glory. We spent about 1 hour walking around so it doesn't take much time.

Situated opposite Roma Termini this is well worth a visit. Allow plenty of time to go round as there is much to see both inside and out. The extensive gardens contain many statues and other carvings and they are so peaceful it's hard to believe you're next to such a busy area of the city. The buildings surrounding the gardens...

The external courtyard of the complex housing the Diocletian Baths and for Saint is beautiful and peaceful. Adjacent to major roadworks and near to the main rail terminus, it is a nice oasis. The entry price seemed high at €13, as I had a relatively short time and no knowledge or expectations. Making a beeline to the section housing the... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The 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 its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
