Virtual visit to Baths of Caracalla on Rome's birthday.
Rome's Baths of Caracalla, currently closed to the public due to the coronavirus emergency, can be visited virtually on the occasion of the 2,773rd birthday of the Eternal City.
The special event, which will be aired at 10.00 on 21 April, is part of the Cultura non si ferma (Culture does not stop) campaign by Italy's culture ministry.
The video, guided by the site's director Marina Piranomonte, will take the viewer through the majestic ruins of the bath complex, including the gymnasiums, frigidarium and calidarium, the spectacular mosaics and the underground tunnels that lead to the largest preserved Roman mithraeum.
