The Baths of Caracalla (Terme di Caracalla)

We were recommended to visit this place, the baths of Caracalla (Terme di Caracalla) and I could say that it’s an awesome place during that time.They were begun by Septimius Severus in 206 and opened in 217 by Caracalla and were completed by their successors. There were three kinds of baths – cold, warm and hot water which could accommodate 1,600 at a time. They were the second largest Roman public baths. The entrance ticket is 6€ but it’s also included in the Roma Pass if you buy it. Well, I liked it so much – I have found that not many tourists visited this place. You can reach them by Line B on the metro system, from both Circo Massimo and Piramide stations.
