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.

  • Great place where you can still see remnants of mosaics of swimming pools and gyms. Worth a visit

  • I was pleasantly surprised by these thermal baths of ancient Rome which were built around the year 200, at the time of the Emperor Caracalla. Is that when I planned our trip to Italy had read that no visit, were worth because they were deteriorated and truth, they are, but worth touring them with time. Although, as in many other places, sculptures, columns, paintings, etc; have been mostly to the Museum of Naples, there is still much to see... Then we went to the Museum to see what we needed.

  • 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 !
