Terme di Caracalla (Baths of Caracalla) - entrance ticket

A chance to experience the Terme di Caracalla (The Baths of Caracalla) - at their peak the second busiest public baths in Rome. Thanks to restoration work throughout the 19th and 20th centuries they now offer a fascinating glimpse into the bathing culture of the Romans.

The thermae (public baths) were completed in around 211 AD by the Emperor Caracalla and used by thousands of bathers a day until they fell into disuse during the 6th century Gothic wars.
