The location was facinating. The large location made you wonder how it could possible be constructed. Our guide pulled all together for us.

We saw a news report in the USA on the Baths of Caracalla and decided to see it, Our guide Michele Mattei met us at the front of the site and walked us through. Michele’s background as an archeologist was perfect. We had a very informative and fun tour. The amazing work in recovering the site coupled with Michele’s great description made this an unforgettable tour.

Well worth the money! Our tour guide...

Well worth the money! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and he even gave each of us an architectural map that helped to envision the baths as they once were during the glory days of the Roman empire. Without this tour, we wouldn't have understood the purpose of the various rooms within the baths, and we would have viewed the entire structure as simply more ruins. Highly recommend this tour!!
