I must echo the "hidden gem" review. However, the placards around the thermal complex are also in English. A relatively recent villa had been built on the site of the museum. This was torn down after the property was bought by the Italian government except for at least one outside wall which had incorporated relics found on the property making for an interesting effect. Lastly, photos of the Appian Way in the museum from the early 1900's, before urban sprawl, are fascinating. There is a cafe on site. I cannot remember if a W.C. is available. If you are on the Appian Way, this is a must see.

We stumbled upon this site just up the rode from the mausoleum of Caecilia Metella. It was fascinating history. On first glance upon entry it seems its just another location with some ruins. But the history is incredible. These ruins, complete with a private bath unlike the public terme di caracalla, was owned by the prominent Herodes Atticus who was a tutor to Marcus Aurelius and his co-emperor Lucius Veras. Atticus also owned many other lands along the Appian Way and even funded a major theater in Athens. Walk past the ruins and you will be taken to a museum depicting the history of the Appian Way and struggle of modern suburban sprawl versus historic preservation. The story is quite fascinating with players on both sides arguing for preservation of these historic sites and this road versus others wanting to protect their lands. The museum is free...but most of the placarding is in Italian but it didn't prevent me from understanding the situation.
