Useful Info

Baths of Diocletian is the biggest public baths in Rome were built between ad 298-306 and could hold 3000 bathers – about twice the capacity of the Terme di Caracalla.

The ground plan was roughly the same – a walled outer perimeter enclosing gardens, exercise rooms and hot and cold pools. The tepidarium was converted by Michelangelo into the Church of S. Maria degli Angeli in 1566.

The remains of the calidarium now form the external facade of the church. Most of the remains of the terme are now occupied by the Museo Nazionale delle Terme (National Museum; one of the most important collections in the world of ancient sculpture, painting and mosaics, and sarcophagi). The setting is very appropriate as it was the custom in the ancient world to decorate public baths with works of art.
