Walked here from the Colosseum, using my Roma Pass for my second free admission. The grounds are beautiful and from just from the signs you can get a good feel of what these huge baths were like. I just wish they had a few more...More

The virtual reality headset really made the difference to visiting here because you really get an idea what it looked like. And unlike photos you can turn your head around and so view it almost as if you were in it - otherwise it's mostly...More

I was in Rome for one week. This site is comparable to Palitine Hill. The buildings are giant except there is actual tiling and some other art work in tact. It's set on beautiful grounds. It's a short walk from Circus Maximus or you take...More

I negotiated metro and bus from central Rome to visit the baths on quite a hot day. As with much of Rome, in hot weather you need sunscreen and water with you while you explore. The sheer size of the structures is impressive and give...More

The baths themselves make for impressive ruins though like with most others, the best parts have long since been removed. However after the introductory information on the way in, there is minimal signage to explain what you see. More frustrating yet is that there are...More

We had the pleasure of a guided evening tour. You need to book in advance and it is not done every day. Our visit was in Italian but the quality of the guides was impressive. So I presume this stands also for the English tour....More

While close to the Palatine Hill and Colosseum, these lovely ancient public baths are not as overrun with tourists. The ruins of these impressive baths are set in lovely park-like grounds and the virtual reality tour is quite fun. Definitely worth visiting and imagining what...More

I found out about this place by accident but I'm glad I went to see it. At only €5 to enter, it is a very cheap attraction to go and see. I spent a little over an hour at this place, awe struck by the...More
