Caracalla baths Appia tour

Ancient Rome's monumental look is enhanced by the ruins of the huge baths complex built by Caracalla. The baths were built between 212 and 217 A.D. and were renovated a few years later by the emperor Aurelianus. They were in use up until the VIth century when their aqueducts were destroyed by the Ostrogoths. The Baths were fully equipped with libraries, changing rooms, gyms and could welcome 1500 bathers. Today we can still see the location of the different pools (frgidarium, tepidarium and calidarium) as well as some mosaics; visiting the baths will show you the day-to-day customs of the ancient romans. Nearby we will visit the church of Santi Nereo and Achilleo, a basilica built in the IVth century, where we will see a number of frescoes painted by Pomarancio in the VIth century, that depict stories of christian martyrs. We will also visit the church of St. Caesarius built on the remains of an ancient building. Not far is the house of Cardinal Bessarion (a renowned personality from the renaissance). We will then pass by the tomb of the Scipios, on the way we will see the Arch of Drusus, built in the IIIrd century, and arrive at Porta San Sebastiano, a gate in the Aurelian Wall built in the IIIrd century.

The visit include

 Baths of Caracalla, church of Santi Nereo and Achilleo, passing view of the villa of Cardinal Bessarion, the ancient Appian Way, Porta San Sebastiano, the Aurelian Walls. No visits on Sundays and Mondays.
