In my opinion the best ancient Roman site to visit in Rome. Its the scale of the surviving ruins that make it so spectacular. Lots of mosaics in excellent condition and good information boads although I still felt purchasing a guide book was necessary. Unfortunately the underground areas are currently closed but the baths are still an essential visit for... More

Even if you have seen the converted baths of Diocletian you should miss these. So much modern architecture was based on these baths to start with. And then there is the sheer size of them...you feel like a pea walking amongst the ruins. I don't think they are ever crowded either even though they are very close to Palatine Hill... More

This is a wonderful, large open-air site to visit on a lovely day. It was quiet and not crowded when I visited during the off-season. There is a 6 euro admission, with the audio guide an additional 5 euro. I relied on the sporadic signs for my interpretation, and they were adequate, but not extensive. The site is massive, and...

Went it not really knowing what to expect, but thinking it would be of minor interest. It is very interesting, much more remains of the bath complex than I expected, together with some mosaic floors. The audioguide is very good. Its other plus point is that it is not mobbed like many of the other saites in Rome, there was... More

This site is a giant Roman bath. It was about a 15min walk from Circus Maximus. In comparison to other places in the city the location was not well advertised but it was just as impressive as the colosseum and well worth a visit. It was €6 each to get in. Audio guides were available. The site is massive and... More

A splendid place to visit, especially on a sunny day. The ruins of the baths are much bigger than we expected and very impressive.

These ruins are almost as impressive as Forum and Colosseum. Before you go, however, find the opening hours online. It closes relatively early, and is closed for a period during the day (at least in November). The scale and size of these baths is simply breathtaking. And it is astonishing how much of the mosaic floors is preserved. At the... More

The baths were recommended to us by a friend and I am so glad she did. The site was quiet and not the usual packed with tourists venue. The scale of the ruins was incredible. If you get the archeological pass for Rome including the Colleseum and Forum, then this comes included. About a 10 minute walk from Circus Maximus... More

Wow! This was a real find, literally next door to the St. Regis, Rome at Plaza Republica. Amazing Basilica and ancient public bath that no seems to know about. One block from the train station. See it!

Walking through these ruins lets you imagine how the Romans went there to take a bath and enjoy themselves. You even get to see the remains of a board game carved in stone. The walls are incredibly high and the remains of the mosaics give an insight into the artistic style of these rooms. You can also visit the basement... More
