At the bookshop you will find an illustrated guide dedicated to the Baths of Caracalla and a selection of guides, art books and merchandising.
The Baths of Caracalla were built on the eponymous emperor’s orders and are one of the largest and better-preserved public baths of antiquity. They were not just a place to bathe, play sports and generally take care of one’s body, but also a place to study and stroll. The complex’s rectangular plant is typical of the great imperial baths. Our written sources describe them as huge and lavishly decorated, with polychrome marble, stucco and statues. Built in the southern part of the city the Baths of Caracalla functioned from 216 AD to 537 AD.
