Thermae of Caracalla
Visit the Thermae of Caracalla and be amazed by the structure of this imperial bath. This well-preserved and most finest bath of ancient Rome was constructed under the Emperor Caracalla and exhibits the rectangular shape typical to imperial spa centers. This bath was the finest in its time because the spa was not simply a place for bathing, sport and health, but is was also a place of study and relaxing. The total complex covers 25 hectares and is definitely a 'must-see' when you are spending time in Rome.
Tomb of Cecilia Metella
This Tomb was constructed during the Reign of Emperor Augustus in honor of Cecilia Metella, the daughter of a Roman Consul. The mausoleum is shaped in a circular way similar to that of Augustus only smaller. The Tomb is one of the most well-known and well-preserved mausoleums along the Via Appia. Although the tomb itself is more or less in ruins it is still an inspiring sight to see. The construction is quite beautiful and is worth a visit.
This sumptuous villa was the largest and most luxurious residence in ancient Rome and belonged to the Quintilii brothers. However, the brothers couldn't enjoy the villa for long as Emperor Commodus had set his eyes on the building and had the brothers killed and took the villa for himself. The monumental complex stands over the Roman countryside and offers a panorama that through time has inspired many famous artists. One of the highlights of the villa is the well-preserved baths complex with a pool, caldarium (hot room) and frigidarium (cold room). Now you can also visit the small museum, which shows the history of the sumptuous villa.

Dommage, nous n'avons pas pu visiter le villa ni le mausolée de Cecilia, car ils sont assez excentrés de la ville, et les transports en bus étaient coupés pour tout le week en à cause d'une course à pied.
