Bit of a walk from the centre but worth it, place is so quiet and relaxing, away from the crowds. The ruins are colossal, must have been amazing when it was all in one piece and functioning. I think it's bit pricey to pay for...More

We did the 4D tour and it was well worth it. You could readily visualize what the Baths looked like when in use.

The site is massive and hugely impressive. It is only a short walk from the circus Maximus as well so it is easy to get to. A few mosaic remain in place making this site even more amazing. Beware it is quite expensive though €11...More

We went here on a very hot time. Good thing is that there are lots of shades due to trees and huge walls of the ancient bath. The Building is amazing on its own but it was a much better experience with a 4D goggles...More
