The Terme di Diocleziano translated as ‘The baths of Diocletian’ were public baths in Rome, Italy. The imperial baths were built in the 3rd century after being commissioned by Roman Emperor Maximian in honour of co-emperor Diocletian. The baths were refurbished in the 5th century before the siege of Rome in 537 AD. Today, part of the perimeter of the bath is occupied by the Church of Saint Mary of the Angels. Indeed, in 1561 Pope Pius IV.
The baths are in central Rome, a walking distance away from the central ‘Termini’ station that serves both the metro and bus systems of the city.
