Baths of Diocletian

Recommendations

Commissioned by the Emperor Diocletian in 298 AD, the Baths of Diocletian had a capacity of over 3,000 people (twice as many as the Baths of Caracalla). This bath complex was the largest of ancient Rome.

Notes from Baths of Diocletian:
The Baths of Diocletian are a monumental complex that is unique in the world for its size and exceptional state of conservation. They were built in just eight years between 298 and 306 AD and extended over an area of ​​13 hectares , in the area between the Viminale and Quirinale hills. The complex could hold up to 3000 people at the same time and was structured according to the usual scheme of the great imperial baths with the main rooms of the thermal path distributed along a central axis. From the calidarium , the artificially heated hot room with a complex system of air chambers under the floors and around the walls, one entered the tepidarium, the room with an intermediate temperature, and therefore to the frigidarium , the vast room for cold baths, now recognizable in the Basilica of S. Maria degli Angeli.
