What a find. You can completely submerse yourself in this place. It's quiet and peaceful, yet the site has wonderfully preserved features. One of the highlights of our trip.

Previous reviews are all accurate and helpful. We also caught the local Bus B to the ruins. It was 2euro each way for each of us. The locals, travelling on the bus, gave us a cheery send-off when we reached the site. The ruins are well preserved and are explained, in detail, with maps and signage. The staff are very helpful and friendly. You really have to see this place to understand the tranquility of being able to look through the ruins (and take photos) without hundreds of others jostling around. A hidden gem.

After being herded through museums and ruins in Rome, this is refreshing. First of all, it is isolated out in the country via a lovely drive. Keep your eyes open for surprises like aqueducts. It really answers questions about how archaeologists know what the half demolished buildings of Rome looked like. Many of these buildings are intact right down to the decorative features. It is easier to understand the context and social function of these places with hospitals and libraries besides the bath houses. This is a tranquil place to contemplate its beauty. There were only 2 other people there.

My 11-year-old daughter and I visited this fabulous ancient monument in August 2019. We were on a cruise so had a few hours in Civitaveccia. We walked to the train station which is clearly signposted. In front of the train station is a mini bus station, and you need Bus B to the ruins. We caught the 11:10am bus and it cost us 2 euros, the journey took about 25 minutes. The baths are the last stop and the stop is right next to the baths, so you can't miss it. Our bus driver was very friendly. The baths charged me 5 euros and my daughter was free. You need a good hour to walk round, 2 if you can spare it. A man explained the history to us, gave us a map and then let us explore. My daughter enjoyed map reading and reading the information boards. There were a few lovely cats. There is also a representation of Roman gardens. We spent about an hour and a half and got the last bus back to town - be aware, it is at 12:40 and then the baths close at 1pm. There were only a handful of other tourists there. It's a gem of a site away from all the crowds. : )
