Description

Immerse yourself into a green archeological area a stone’s throw from the Colosseum and explore two of the ancient Romans’ favorite places of leisure. Save time with an express and complete guided tour featuring insider tips. Let your guide bring to life the impressive ruins of the best-preserved baths in Rome. Marvel at their gigantic walls and wander through the monumental rooms of the Caracalla thermal complex. Be an ancient Roman as you go through the exact steps of a typical day at the baths in the 3rd century AD. Discover the bizarre range of services offered in this ancient spa for both the body and mind. Appreciate the architectural greatness of Imperial Rome and be surprised by the abilities of the ancient engineers. Learn about the labor-intensive underfloor heating system, find out the techniques used to maintain the desired temperature in every room, and admire the geometric motifs on the beautiful mosaics all over the place. Then, head toward what is considered to have been the largest structure for public games ever built by mankind. Standing where the Circus Maximus once existed, learn about the glorious Roman “Ludi,” the spectacular multi-venue celebrations held for up to several days. Listen as your guide tells tales of chariot races, gladiator fights, and the clamor of the public while walking on the soil where they used to take place. Finally, travel back in time to a quasi-legendary era before Rome itself and find out the circus’s foundations in the early myths and gods.
