The museum is in it self very beautiful laid out in the ruins of the old Terme; thats also on display here. Huge beautiful halls, marble bathtubs and statues - just to walk around is very nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. On the day we visited, it was not crowded and we were able to enjoy it at our leisure. The outdoor courtyard is particularly pleasant. A cloistered design, the Outer walkways are lined with countless sculptures. The harassed center has many pieces of art intramural material. The center has large Mickaelangelo statues of rhinos, horses,... More

This is part of the Museo Nazionale Romano and your entry ticket includes this and four other sites. This visit falls into two parts, firstly the cloisters of a Carthusian monastery, the larger of which is attributed to Michelangelo and both of which are littered with classical statues to be admired. Then you move into the Baths of Diocletian -... More

With so many other Roman attractions. it would be easy to miss these baths. But the collection of sculptures and awesome ancient bath structures is not to be missed.

If you want to have a visceral perspective on the glories of ancient Rome, this is a good place to go. We particularly enjoyed he central gardens with its surrounding porticos filled with statuary and it's matching pairs of bulls, horses, rams, and elephant/rhino. The museum contains a vomitorium of statues and sculptures. The baths themselves, though largely empty today,... More

The location is very close to the Termini Railway Station, and the visit is 1 hour. And there's no queue usually, so it's great place to visit if you are about to use the train. This was the biggest roman spa, today not much is left but the collection of funeral artifacts that you find exposed inside is great. Don't... More

This was the last attraction for my Rome visit. I did not really do my research and just walked in and bought the ticket. I wanted to see the the masterpieces the Boxer at Rest, the Lancellotti Discobolus (Discus Thrower) and the Hermaphroditus Asleep and the Bronze Dyonisus, thinking that the national museum was just one building. It turns out... More

We combined this with a visit to the Palazzo Massimo - there is a combined ticket - and both of these are well worth a visit. The building itself is of interest, but there are exhibits inside that are of interest, including changing art exhibits.

We cannot recollect how many times we have waited a very long time in Termini station for a train but if we had known that we could have entered the gates to the Baths of Diocletian and sat in the garden for free, how pleasant our long wait would have been!

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
