Terme di Caracalla, Rome
(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Emperor Caracalla constructed Terme di Caracalla, the second-largest Roman baths in the city, between 211 and 217 CE. The original complex covered 25 hectares (33 acres), and the building was 228 m (750 ft) long with a 38.5 m (125 ft) high ceiling. The central area of the remaining baths is the summer location of the Rome Opera Company and a concert venue for world-famous acts, such as the Three Tenors. Buy a ticket to tour the ruins, and wander among the huge walls and crumbling foundations.

  • This site is a giant Roman bath. It was about a 15min walk from Circus Maximus. In comparison to other places in the city the location was not well advertised but it was just as impressive as the colo...  more »
  • A real walk in the customs of the Romans ... a place of big charm ... Many say they are only 4 stones. but those stones hiding history, customs and traditions of the Romans ... from 6,000 to 8,000 people a day filled the terme, just think about this ... With 11 euros you get admission and audio guide really useful to understand the history of the Spa ... Strikingly beautiful and full of history

  • One of the last places that people visit in Rome but very nice and impacting. Huge spaces that make it a nice walk specially if you combine it with visiting Aventino and Circo Massimo
  • Beautiful site, now you can even visit an underground section. I recommend looking up the History Chanel's episode about the baths that is in YouTube, before going.
  • Great attraction away from most of the crowds. Definitely worth the small entrance fee.
  • Unexpectedly fantastic - the ruins are breathtakingly huge and there are extensive mosaic floors being painstakingly restored. Puts any ruins I've seen in the UK to shame, and Caracalla is twice as old!
  • Impressive, magnificant. A marvel of engineering. A good place to do in rome !
