What’s better than sitting at the Baths of Caracalla while listening to some of the most famous operas?
That’s what the Rome Opera Theatre has once again organized for the Roman Summer season.
Since 1937 the Theatre has held operas in the magnificent set of the Caracalla baths.
The location is amazing, especially when lit up at night.
This breath taking location offers a great opportunity to both opera lovers and culture vultures.
Opera lovers can enjoy the opera and ballet season under the stars and in the open air.
In case you are interested more in the archeological complex, you’ll certainly feel as a part of it and you’ll have the chance to glimpse into the ancient Roman world.
The Caracalla Baths were named after the emperor Caracalla who completed his father’s project of building these enormous and extraordinary bathhouses.
As all Roman baths, the Caracalla baths were a sanitary necessity for most Roman citizens. They were also an opportunity to socialize.
They included the three fundamental bathing rooms, libraries and gardens.
They are very well preserved, rich in colour, full of mosaics and with big sculptures.
We can certainly say that these Baths are among the best archeological complexes of the imperial epoch.
So, don’t miss this great opportunity: book your Bed & Breakfast Rome near the Baths, take a walk to the ancient Roman ruins and just sit there to enjoy your favourite opera!
