Terme di Diocleziano is known to be one of the largest public bath complexes in ancient Rome. The complex opened in 306 with a capacity to accommodate around 3,000 people at a time. Operational for over 2 centuries, the baths were also known for beautiful mosaics and sculptures adorning its walls. Today, this huge area has been divided into three parts and is used by the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, Church of San Bernardo alle Terme, and sections of the National Roman Museum. Even though only some part of the ancient bath is open to the public today, it is worth visiting.
