Below is the suggested itinerary of exciting places to visit in Rome on your 3rd day.
Italians love for thermal baths and recreation is not a recent fad, but a tradition that extends way back to the days of Ancient Rome. On this tour you will have the opportunity to visit one of the most splendid ancient health spas that surely inspired awe in the ancient Romans: the Baths of Caracalla. This impressive and well preserved surviving example of an Imperial bath and recreational complex was built in early 3rd Century AD by Emperor Caracalla and was able to accommodate up to 10,000 people at a time, with 1,600 bathers in a extensive area covering about 1 million square feet.
This enormous bath complex included an Olympic size swimming pool (called natatio), hot baths (caldarium), cold baths (frigedarium) and exercise areas (palastrae). Opulent architectural elements of marble and columns, as well as artistic decorations of mosaics and sculptures that were once part of this luxurious bath complex can be found scattered around Italy’s piazzas, churches, buildings, and museums.
Aside from being a health spa, it was also a learning center with large public libraries in both Latin and Greek and conference rooms. Gardens and shops also occupied the premises. The Baths of Caracalla were not meant for mere cleanliness and relaxation, but it served as a center for people to meet, network, and conduct business.
Capitoline Hill was one of the Seven Hills upon which Rome was founded. Today, visitors can enjoy a visit to the Capitoline Museums, one of the “must see” museums in Rome located inside 3 palaces that surround a trapezoidal square conceived by Michelangelo. In the center of the square is a bronze copy of Emperor Marcus Aurelius - the original can be seen inside the museum.
The Capitoline Museums house a vast collection of ancient Roman, Greek and even Egyptian statues, reliefs, vases, sarcophagi, mosaics, busts and artifacts of great interest, Medieval and Renaissance Art, jewels, coins, and famous sculptures you are sure to recognize.
Among the most treasured and recognized pieces are the bronze “She Wolf nursing Remus and Romulus”, the “Capitoline Gaul”, “Cupid and Psyche”, “Capitoline Venus”, “Medusa”, the epigraphic collection of Ancient Roman funerary inscriptions that gives you a glimpse into the personal lives of ancient Romans, “Commodus as Hercules”, the enormous ancient bronze statue of Marcus Aurelius, and more.
The Papal Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, commonly known as St. John Lateran Basilica is the cathedral church of the Diocese of Rome and the official ecclesiastical seat of the Bishop of Rome, who is also the Pope (currently Pope Francis I).
Dedicated to John the Baptist and John the Evangelist, the Basilica of St. John Lateran is the oldest and the first of the four Papal Basilicas of Rome, known as
“Omnium urbis et orbis Ecclesiarum Mater et Caput”, or “Cathedral of Rome and of the World."
Built by Emperor Constantine in the 4th century, St John Lateran was the first church built in Rome on top of the ancient palace of the family of the Laterani. In the 2nd century military barracks were established by Emperor Septimius Severus. Emperor Constantine demolished the barracks and built the cathedral of Rome on top dedicating it to the Savior in 318 AD.
The Basilica has been rebuilt several times after being burned, sacked, and destroyed by earthquakes. In mid 1700’s a new facade was created.
There is much of interest to see today inside the basilica: the central bronze doors are of Roman origins from the Senate House (the Curia), at the left end of the portico is a Roman statue of Emperor Constantine discovered among the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian, statues of the Apostles and Evangelists beautifully stand inside niches in the nave, a stunning 14th century baldacchino (the canopy over the high altar), the Altar of the Holy Sacrament believed to contain a cedar table used by Christ at the Last Supper, the tombs of 6 popes, and beautiful 14th century Cosmatesque pavement that is a perfect example of this ornamental floor technique.
Trastevere is the charming Rome neighborhood across the Tiber River, as the name indicates in Latin: “trans Tiberium” translates to “beyond the Tiber”. This is perhaps the closest you will come to see Old World Rome as the neighborhood retained its characteristic charm with narrow cobblestone streets, medieval buildings with aged ochre and sienna facades, hanging ivy, and unique boutiques you won’t likely find in the rest of Rome.
The most popular square is Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, thusly named after the beautiful church of Santa Maria in Trastevere that is perhaps one of the oldest churches in Rome since 4th Century AD and likely where the first Mass was openly celebrated in Rome. What we see now is the 12th century reconstruction, but elements inside the church are still from as far back as 4th century.
The lovely fountain in the center of the square that attracts quite a gathering on its steps is the original work for Donato Bramante with later additions by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Carlo Fontana, but it’s believed that a fountain has been here since the 8th century.
Your last day in Rome will not be complete without a stop on top of Janiculum Hill for a sweeping view of Rome below to admire it from the vantage point of its popular terrace . From church domes and the dome of the Pantheon....to ancient monuments and modern buildings, you will see Rome stretched out before you...one of the most memorable ways to enjoy at the end of your Rome in 3 Days tour.
