Overview

Explore the magnificent complex of the Baths of Caracalla and discover its great past, rich decorations and fascinating mysteries!
These incredible thermal baths take their name from the “mad emperor”, Caracalla (fratricidal and heartless), who inaugurated them in 216 AD, and is among the most impressive ever built in the Roman Empire.
You will walk among the colossal remains of the gyms, the magnificent swimming pools and the “calidarium”, a large round room with “floor heating”, thanks to the steam that, coming from underground furnaces, flows between the pillars below the floor.
Be enchanted by the marvelous decorations in white marble and the sumptuous mosaic floors depicting dolphins and sea monsters!
Discover amazing traces of the daily life of ancient Rome, such as the “chessboard” engraved on the edge of the enormous “natatio” (swimming pool) to be able to play while immersed in the cool waters of the pool.
