The “Baths of Caracalla” are one of the greatest roman baths, or “thermae”, ever built. The Baths of Caracalla accessible tour with our special wheelchair will take you to this archaeological site near the “Appian Way”, the most important street of the Roman Empire. Along the “Appian Way” you can also find many other interesting accessible archaeological sites. “Emperor Caracalla” built the baths during the second century, and they became a place where the members of the Roman aristocracy could come to do many different activities.
People came to the public baths to bathe and socialize. There were pools where people could swim, but also what we would now call ancient spa facilities, where the ancient romans came for saunas and massages. In every big public bath, there were three rooms of different temperatures dedicated to personal hygiene. The “Calidarium” was a room with hot water, where ancient romans could even take saunas. The room was heated by sunlight, torches, and in some cases even a heated floor system. The “Tepidarium” was less hot, and often richly decorated with mosaics. The third room was the “Frigidarium”, which contained a pool of cold water. Lastly, the “natatio” was a room with a big swimming pool where people could do some physical activity. The “Baths of Caracalla” were much bigger than the usual public baths, and outside the main area where people came to bathe there were two gyms and two libraries. Have you ever heard the saying “mens sana in corpore sano”? It is a Latin proverb that means “a healthy mind in a healthy body”. The ancient Romans believed that being fit and pursuing education were equally important, and that people should find a healthy balance between the two. The Baths of Caracalla accessible tour with our special wheelchair will take you to see the place where ancient Romans took care of their bodies as well as their minds.
The “Baths of Caracalla” were mostly visited by the richest citizens, including members of the Roman Aristocracy. Men and women would come to the baths at different times of the day. The “Baths of Caracalla” were beautifully decorated with marble, mosaics, and statues. Many of these decorations were recovered, and they are now exposed in different museums.
