Fodor's Expert Review Caracalla Therme
Less of a relaxing "forget-the-outside-world" experience than the neighboring Friedrichsbad, the Caracalla Therme maintains a series of indoor–outdoor swimming pools with temperatures between 18°C and 38°C (64°F–100°F) that are ideal for the more modest traveler and those with families, since bathing suits are required here. Though children under seven are not allowed in the spa upstairs and those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult, the swimming area offers whirlpools, Jacuzzis, and waterfalls to complement the warm waters. A series of saunas on the upper level are clothing-free and provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the pool area below. Be sure to bring your own robe and bath towel, as they are not a part of the package here.
