Ruin Historic Site
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.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.

  • A little nice stadium !
  • Why is the heart of Rome, one of the most farsighted emperors and a place that at night with its lighting is enchanted. The stadium Nando Martellini in athletics, next door, is light. For runners is a must run to the ' cookie ', which is the space in front of the entrance to the Spa, where often start many sport events both professional and running of solidarity (such as the Race for the Cure). Definitely a place to visit for tourists, without haste or rushing for sports enthusiasts.

  • A beautiful Stadium surrounded by the ruins of the baths of Caracalla. Condition of the track very good and reasonable annual €2 €80 entry admission prices. Friendly staff, State of the locker rooms and decent facilities.

  • Is like running in history. Located just next to the baths of Caracalla. A great place to take your kids or athletic to go running. Too bad only long term closures which runs from mid-June to mid-September.
