The baths are massive and give a real understand of the scale of these buildings that can be found here and elsewhere in the city. It's a short walk from the Circus Maximus station. If you go when it's closed it can be admired from above by following the road to the right of the main entrance up the hill.... More

The baths of Caracalla are a short 10 min walk from the Colosseum and are definitely worth visiting. The ruins cover an impressive area and are surrounded by nature. It's a very peaceful site few tourists take advantage of. The magnificence of the ruins gives the visitor an idea of the grandeur of the baths in their prime. I highly... More

We have been here for the first time, the site is approximately 10 minutes walk from the colloseum. The site is really worth the walk. Take a audio-guide for extra information (id card is necessary for deposit!). The site consists of the ruins of the walls of the terme, but also remnants of the marble floors are there, really very... More

The baths are amazing complex, but the reason for this review is simply to say how peaceful we found it. Despite being only a 5 minute walk from Circus Maximus (and 15 minutes from the Colosseum and Forum) it is completely away from the crowds and a great place to relax.

Building of the Baths commenced in 212AD, with a labour force of nine thousand each day, for five years until completion in 217AD. The Baths had the capacity to accommodate 1,600 bathers at the same time, while they catered for up to 8,000 people each day. The Complex was abandoned in 537AD, with the Goths siege of Rome. These wonderful... More

My husband and I had some time to kill before heading to the airport on the last day of our trip so we thought we'd take a look at this place. We got a reduced rate ticket for being EU citizens aged 25 and under which meant €3 each (full price €6) Bargain! There was far more to see than... More

It's amazing how a place like this can transcend you into another time. When you read about what was and how they lived so many years ago, it's easy to feel like you are there. With all the high tech toys and gadgets out there, it's still touching history that can bring you back in time.

At first sight it may seem like these structures are just ruins and you might be tempted to just walk past. However, if you want to experience it fully I would suggest either the audio guide or a cursory reading of its history to fully embrace where you are standing. We went during a nice afternoon and stayed for about... More

This site is not as popular as some others in Rome. It it is actually very accessible - only a short walk (maybe 10 mins) to Palatine Hill and another 10 mins to the Coliseum. It is also very impressive. The ruins are large and the scale of the Roman Baths is quiet astounding. It's definitely worth a visit. We... More

This is a fantastic place, an enormous ruin but with lots to see for a relatively little entrance fee. I had heard about it on a TV programme and it was just as good as it looked on the television! It must have been a spectacular place in its (Roman) time, with fantastic tiled floors and walls. There are lots... More
