Baths of Caracalla & Circus Maximus Guided Tour

Go back in time during a 3-hour walking guided tour of the Bath of Caracalla, the most luxurious thermae of the Roman Empire, then marvel at the remains of the Circus Maximus and discover other curious sites. 

Itinerary

Does the name Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus sound familiar? Maybe his nickname “Caracalla” is better known. The Roman Emperor was called “Caracalla for the hooded tunic he used to wear and which he made fashionable. On this 3-hour guided tour, you’ll explore the Roman Empire’s most famous baths, named after the famous emperor and soldier.

Mosaics, beautiful sculptures, marble facings, a library…during the third century AD, the Bath of Caracalla was one of the most important meeting points for the Roman citizens. Accompanied by an expert English-speaking guide, you’ll discover the history of this impressive vestige and the glorious Roman Empire period, when the public baths were an important part of a civilian's daily life and where they would converse and…conspire.

Next, you’ll follow your guide to the remains of the Circus Maximus. Founded as a circus for chariot racing, this is where the thrilling and nearly always deadly races took place, often reenacted in novels and films such as Ben-Hur.

Afterwards, wander to the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, renowned worldwide for housing the spectacular Bocca della Verità. According to the legend, this bearded male face could detect a liar when the person inserted his hand into the open mouth. If the hand was severed it meant the person was lying. The Bocca della Verità became extremely famous after it was filmed in “Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

The tour will come to an end after visiting the remains of the Teatro Marcello, where the Empire’s actors could achieve instant glory or lose their prestige after just one show.
