This stop is only worth a very, very short visit if in that part of town. Definitely not worth going out of your way to see.

Although the opening times are very limited, it is well worth making the effort to visit the Terme della Rotonda, the ancient Roman Baths, which are a few minutes’ walk away from the Teatro Romano. Housed in a circular structure (hence the name) these date...More

The entrance is a humble staircase to the right of the basilica. When open there is little room for all the visitors although the whole place can be thoroughly studied within a time-frame of 10 minutes. Very interesting - but do not expect anything on...More
