The Baths of Caracalla Private Tour with PhD guide Donato
Don't miss this 2-hour private tour of the magnificent Baths of Caracalla, one of the largest and best-preserved examples of an ancient spa complex in Rome. Imagine what it must have been like back in the Roman Empire days bathing in this public space with more than 3000 people at a time.
Meet your guide at the entrance and head in to discover the marvellous archeological ruins. Listen to your expert guide explain the history of the baths, how much water was used and learn about the 3 bathing sections of various temperatures, as you admire the 30 meter high walls that still remain today.
Now open to the public are the underground tunnels that lie beneath the baths. Walk down below to see where the slaves would fill the huge ovens with wood that once heated the complex.
Admire the famous architecture of the baths, the domed octagons, porticoes, and vaulted rooms. Although stripped of their sculptures and other treasures, there are still large fragments of mosaics to be seen.
