Best attractions to visit in Rome

41. Terme Di Caracalla - Rome

Terme Di Caracalla

Terme Di Caracalla (or the Baths of Caracalla, as they are internationally known), was among the largest Roman bathhouses to be built, constructed somewhere around 212 AD. The remains of the bathhouse are a popular tourist attraction these days, probably because Roman bathhouses have been considered a prominent part of the Roman culture and television shows like Rome and Spartacus feature these bathhouses a lot. The Baths of Caracalla was a huge construct, with over 6,000 people taking baths here every single day back in its heyday. When you visit the Terme Di Caracalla, the most surprising thing is its stupendous size. Most of the surviving buildings in Rome are majestic castles or churches, so it is very different to visit a place which was used by common people as well. The site isn't well publicized which is a good thing because it means you wouldn't have crowds of people in the place when you visit. The bathhouse remains may be a tourist attraction, however it is an archeological space as well, and there aren't many guiding signs around. So, unless you want to take in the beauty yourself and explore, make sure you have an audio tour or a tour guide available before visiting.

43. Villa Adriana Hadrian's Villa Tivoli - Rome

Villa Adriana Hadrian s Villa Tivoli

Villa Adriana Hadrian's Villa Tivoli (or Hadrian’s Villa, as it is commonly known) is now in ruins, but visiting here makes you feel like the place could be alive. It is hard not to imagine what life was like in this villa, when it was active and filled with people. It is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was made around 100 AD. Hadrian, the Roman Emperor, did not like his residence and wanted something grander. Thus began the construction of this beautiful villa. While it is mostly ruins now, there are still some beautiful remnants here which will help you imagine what it looked like. Nowadays, most of the statues that were located in the villa originally are now elsewhere. They were looted and placed elsewhere ages ago. When you reach here, you will at first be amazed by the sheer size of the villa. Villa Adriana Hadrian's Villa Tivoli is a villa fit for a Roman Emperor in every sense of the word, and was designed to be the ‘perfect place to live’, and we could not imagine a more perfect place to live in. The gardens, the pools, the remaining structure, all are something which cannot be missed. It is a very popular site for tourists.
