This was always one of my favourite attractions in Rome, given their size and the fact that on every visit over the past 20 years the place was practically empty. In its current form the ruins offer a virtual reality tour (at extra cost) on...More

Really enjoyed the walk around. The place is beautiful. I would definitely recommend the vr tour but if there are 2 of you buy one. The volume is loud and you have over an hour to compete the tour. It took us 25 mins.

We went for a walk in the late afternoon, hoping to get some photos near sunset. Imagine my amazement to find that there is a summer opera & ballet festival each year! And we were able to get tickets to Aida! It was simply fabulous!!...More

Impossible to imagine the scale of old Roman structures from pictures. This Bath area has to be a great example of that. We didn't rent the VR goggles, I would imagine they're worth it. Too bad we were there before opera season too.

We were lucky enough to watch Carmen at the Caracalla Baths. What a beautiful, spectacular venue to be able to experience one of the greatest operas of all time. To be able to walk around at dusk and watch the sun set and the moon...More

We saw “Carmen” the opera here, in the form of an open-air opera. The stage and seating was set in the middle of some ruins, and they were even incorporated into the play as scene images were projected onto them. Such a beautiful way to...More

2€ Entry. Open 9-12 & 14-18. 7€ additional to rent VR-goggles Take the metro to Circus Massimo and walk S past a running track to find these sprawling ruins. These baths make Diocletian’s baths look puny and further reinforce the priority Roman’s placed on bathing...More

Almost missed this one as it was a choice between this and a trip to Ostia Antica. Given I didn’t fancy the 30min busy train ride in the mid July heat to Ostia I opted for the 30min walk from the hotel to Caracalla and...More

The Baths are in surprisingly good shape, with mosaics, structures and even some modern art in place. While we are there, there were perhaps 50 people there, compared to hundreds or even thousands just up the road at the Colosseum. There is more space to...More

With Virtual Reality glasses you can see how beautiful this enormous bathhouse once was. Highly recommend!

What a beautiful setting for a ballet! I haven't seen the seating, but would think so, as I believe it is raised.

Google a government tourist office in Rome and they will probably have a place for questions. I have no idea.

Singlets and shorts are OK. Not in a church, however. If you are there in late spring, summer, or early fall it will be warm so shorts are fine. If during a colder time of the year you will find it colder than you are used... More
