  • one of the many amazing places in Rome that still did not know, except to study (increasingly remote now) ... that I didn't remember anything. In addition to the National Roman Museum very interesting, beautiful large cloister with impressive statues representatives really particular forms of huge animals, garden where are tree-lined streets and interesting perspectives, the small cloister the beautiful basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in the same beautiful piazza Esedra, known as piazza della Repubblica. Finally the octagonal hall where these days you are holding an exhibition on Mars. All marvelously recounted again by uproarious Marta!!!

  • Not far from Termini station and the Station of Metro Cavour, it contains the latest masterpieces of Michel Angel. A must see the solar clock on the ground on the right. A genius who amazed the spirit.

  • Spectacular ruins. The scale is monumental, dwarfing the visitor. Begun in 298 and finished in 306, the baths were modeled on prior designs from elsewhere, but, like the modern-day arms race in NFL football stadiums, it was bigger and grander than what came before. Don't miss a film presentation within the museum that depicts the baths in their glory, which was stunning. Baths are within Museo de Roma, which features art treasures of its own.
  • Your ticket here gives you access to 4 wonderful museums - Roman Baths, modern art gallery, cultural and historical exhibits museum, beautiful gardens and the capacity to lose yourself in the antiquities, mysteries and culture of Rome's glorious bygone era for hours on end. This location has audio visual enhancements and a very very good museum shop providing a wide range of merchandise suitable for scholars and tourist puposes alike.
  • Museam was incredible- filled with items from antiquity. Audio tour was great but confusing on how to get around. Best part was the renderings of how the baths once looking. Truly marvelous.
  • Amazing place with so much history and antiquities. Very well set out and one of the highlights of our tour of Rome
  • I spent an interesting afternoon here. Lot of history about Rome from the first settlers all the way to Michelangelo designing the baths. Tip: It only cost about €4 and included entry to 3 other museums. (I had the Roma pass so paid a discounted rate)
