The visit of this place is a must. The enormous volumes will propulse you in the Ancient Rome, imagining yourself in this vast center of wellness. The preserves mosaics suddenly make the past far closer to us, and we enjoyed very much the peace and quiet of the place, far less crowed than the roman forum. The large parcs around... More

The size of the grounds and ruins themselves is amazing. Very few tourists. Very interesting site to look around. Some good signs. And a water fountain for filling up waterbottles and some of the best public toilets in rome! only a 15min walk from the colosseum

It's about a 5 mins walk from the Circo Massimo metro station, or about 15 mins walk from the Colosseum. The site is almost empty yet the buildings are enormous and truly impressive. For anyone who likes visiting Roman ruins this is a must see! I also recommend you get the audio guide (at least get one to share), as... More

Just a short distance from the more well known sites is this jewel which I would class as good as any other site, but seldom visited. We spent a little over 2 hours here and only saw 6 other people. The sheer size of this bath complex is staggering and the preservation of the huge mosaic floors unequalled by any... More

The "Terme di Caracalla" is a must see in Rome. The massive ruins are incredible. The place is quiet and beautiful and brings us a very great peace of mind. Absolutely recommendable !!!

The baths are massive and give a real understand of the scale of these buildings that can be found here and elsewhere in the city. It's a short walk from the Circus Maximus station. If you go when it's closed it can be admired from above by following the road to the right of the main entrance up the hill.... More

The baths of Caracalla are a short 10 min walk from the Colosseum and are definitely worth visiting. The ruins cover an impressive area and are surrounded by nature. It's a very peaceful site few tourists take advantage of. The magnificence of the ruins gives the visitor an idea of the grandeur of the baths in their prime. I highly... More

We have been here for the first time, the site is approximately 10 minutes walk from the colloseum. The site is really worth the walk. Take a audio-guide for extra information (id card is necessary for deposit!). The site consists of the ruins of the walls of the terme, but also remnants of the marble floors are there, really very... More

The baths are amazing complex, but the reason for this review is simply to say how peaceful we found it. Despite being only a 5 minute walk from Circus Maximus (and 15 minutes from the Colosseum and Forum) it is completely away from the crowds and a great place to relax.

Building of the Baths commenced in 212AD, with a labour force of nine thousand each day, for five years until completion in 217AD. The Baths had the capacity to accommodate 1,600 bathers at the same time, while they catered for up to 8,000 people each day. The Complex was abandoned in 537AD, with the Goths siege of Rome. These wonderful... More
