Description

We will begin our visit by entering the Baths of Caracalla. They were inaugurated in the year 216, during the reign of Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus, known in historiography as 'Caracalla', the name of a garment (cloak of Gallic origin) which he imposed in Rome as a fashion, making it compulsory for soldiers. These hot springs are the most sumptuous ever built, clad in fine marbles and adorned with a large number of works of art. Later we will visit the Circus Maximus, built during the power of the fifth king of Rome Lucio Tarquinio Prisco, a building dedicated to chariot racing, it was the largest circus of the ancient Roman civilization. We continue towards the famous and feared Mouth of Truth, where legend tells us that if you stuck your hand inside the mouth and told a lie, your hand would be cut off; and then end our tour walking towards the Teatro Marcello.
