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. : )

We cruised to Civitaveccia and after seeing Rome a few years ago, decided to stick around the port.
The ruins here are about 5km away from the port. It's not the safest or easiest walk, and took us about 45 minutes, but was well worth it. I'd recommend a taxi.
The ruins are in excellent condition for the most part and two adult tickets were only 10 euro. You are provided with a map and a brief description of the site.
The fact you can explore inside each room on foot is incredible. I am 22 and my 16 year old brother were both fascinated by it. Definitely suitable for any age as long as they like history! Don't forget to bring water.

Side note! We left our sunglasses on a bench and the owner drove down the hill after us about 15 minutes later to return them! He must've figured we walked from the port. Unbelievable service!!

We asked the driver at the cruise port to take us somewhere close that was interesting. We arrived here at Terme Taurine and had the whole place to ourselves. It was so fun to see the evolution over the years and we very much enjoyed our visit. We would have liked some commentary or guide, but we googled to find our answers.

We visited the baths during our changeover cruise day in Citavecchia - easy to get there using bus B from the train station. Great way to fill in a few hours. We were the only two people there the whole morning and we had a very relaxed walk around examining and back tracking over the site. Much larger site than expected, fairly easy to work out the layout and story but they could do with spending some money renewing the information
sign boards. Ticket office man very friendly and helpful. Nice to roam over a site without the tourist crowds

For nearly 600 years the baths outside of Civitavecchia were a place to relax and rejuvenate the soul. Even though the Roman empire built similar bathing complexes all over the Empire here at Terrme Taurine you will find one of the best preserved ruins of them all. Many tourists arrive by ship at the port of Civitavecchia and immediately jump on a bus to visit nearby Rome. If you can arrange a short side trip to these amazing ruins, you won't be disappointed. Especially if you appreciate how the ancient Roman love of the bath has inspired a modern revival of interest in spas and wellness all over Europe and the world.

These bath ruins are easily accessible by bus from the train station, but be sure to get on the 9:10 bus to have enough time.Unfortunately, the site itself is not well mapped and explained, but there is enough to get the idea. The scope of the place is absolutely astounding, well worth a visit. We almost didn’t go, and we are so glad we did.
