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.

  • It is one of the visits that must be done in Rome if you like ruins and history of ancient Rome. The well-preserved building, a sentence that has not kept something more.

  • The baths are very well kept, obviously considering the past 2000 years. you visit in half a day and you can see the remains of a complex it must have been truly magnificent

  • The site great, well explained, although I would have liked to see more of the underground system of canalization, furnaces, etc. The problem I've had at the entrance with the person who sells the tickets did not want to accept my card as fully legal University Professor because he said not putting my profession (I'm an archaeologist) that me lets get free entry. Tried you to explain that never usually put the profession rn a University card simply says that you are a teacher, but I've taught him a business card also of the University with my name where if said profession and the Department where I work but neither me has believed because said that I the could have invented. Finally it is not for the 6'euros that was worth the entry but it has made me feel as if it was a scam I wanted timar 6 euros to the Italian Government, when it is they who have put this policy to allow entry to members of the profession. It has been particularly unpleasant because it was the last day and anywhere else I've had problems with your card! It is my job and I love to visit these sites.

  • Massive baths commissioned by Caracalla. The sheer size of it is amazing to see. One can only imagine what it would have looked it. Roughly €6-€8 to enter.
  • Vaut le détour
  • Very interesting place. There is not many people. There is good to walk, to sleep in a grass, to stare at trees )
  • This place is downright impressive. The walls are huge. What it must've looked like when all in one piece in nearly unfathomable.
  • Beautiful and quiet place. Usually not too crowded. Worth the price
