Terme di Caracalla, Rome

(4.4/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • It was our last day in Rome and we enjoyed the main attractions and safisteito the greatest oddities, so we find the ruins of the baths of Caracalla, which do not allow has a good idea of the architectural structure. We saw just outside

  • The visit to the baths of Caracalla was one of the most spectacular in my stay in Rome, by their age (beginning of the 3rd century A.d.), its conservation status and its huge size. Located less than ten minutes walk from the Circus Maximus. It is open every day (only Monday morning), tends to have few visitors and entry has a price of only six euros. Explanations on the information panels in English and Italian, are fairly complete. Summer is a season of opera in the enclosure.

  • Great visit. We were lucky enough to be in Rome the first Sunday of the month and the entries are free. The site is beautiful and very well preserved. Seen the activities of the Romans from the sport of baths and relaxation places that make these terms an exciting memory of that time.

  • 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 !
