In the baths of ancient Rome

Museum

The Caracalla Baths are one of the largest and best preserved ancient thermal complex, built during the Roman Empire.

History

Caracalla built the once known as Thermae Antonianae in 216 AD, in rectangular shape, typical of the imperial baths.
The building has 4 access doors on the north-east. On the central avenue of the baths are in sequence calidarium, tepidarium, frigidarium and natatio; to the side two gyms and other environments are symmetrically arranged.
A special branch of the Aqua Marcia aqueduct, Acqua Anthonys in fact, was built specifically to supply the Baths of Caracalla.
The thermal complex, restored several times over the course of the empire, was finally closed in 537 AD.

Collections

The baths in the Roman Empire were not only intended to swimming and body care, but they were places where they carried out other activities, like study and conversation maybe during the walk in the sumptuous avenues of the complex.
That's why the baths were increasingly constructed as real luxury and comfortable buildings, plenty of space. Some manuscripts found tell of huge columns and marble walls, as well as the pavement in colored oriental marble, rich mosaics, detailed decorations, painted stucco and hundreds of colossal statues and groups, were in all environments, both in the niches of the walls that in the roads, both in the most important halls and gardens.

"Nous avons visités les thermes le dimanche 17 juillet visites très agréable sans bain de foules. Les vestiges des thermes sont splendides, nous nous mettons à rêver de cette époque lointaine. Une reconstitution photo par endroit et lieux pourrait être agréable pour pouvoir se plonger plus facilement dans les pièces. Tres belle visite, nous la recommandons! Mégane & Félix "

"Caracalla Baths is a hidden gem. after the manic busyness of all the famous sites in Rome, this quiet gem was a wonderful antidote. The ruins are impressive, the audio narrative very informative and the gardens beautiful. Don't miss it."

"Site historique vraiment sublime et très intéressant ! On peut y pic-niquer c'est très sympa. Par contre je déconseille de prendre les tickets en avance sur internet car c'est finalement plus cher et sans grande nécessité car c'est une visite beaucoup moins connue que le Colisée par exemple, nous n'avons eu aucune attente !!!
