This impressive and well-preserved surviving example of an Imperial bath and the recreational complex was built in the 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 an 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 the 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 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 Lateran. In the 2nd century military barracks were established by Emperor Septimius Severus. Emperor Constantine the barracks demolished 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 the mid-1700s 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 porch is a statue of Roman Emperor Constantine discovered among the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian.
Statues of the Apostles and Evangelists beautifully stand in niches inside the ship, the stunning 14th-century canopy above the Altar of the Holy Sacrament, is believed to contain a cedar table used by Christ and tombs of six popes, and beautiful 14th-century Cosmatesque pavement that is a perfect example of this technique ornamental floor.
Trastevere is the charming neighborhood of Rome 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 ocher and sienna aged facades, hanging ivy, and unique boutiques Likely you will not find in the rest of Rome.
The most popular square is Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, named after the beautiful church of Santa Maria in Trastevere. This is perhaps one of the oldest churches in Rome since the 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 back as to 4th century.
The lovely fountain in the center of the square that attracts quite a gathering on its steps is the original work of Donato Bramante with later additions by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Carlo Fontana. However, it is believed that this 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 this 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. This is one of the most memorable ways complete your Rome in 3 Days tour.
