Treasure hunt at the Baths of Caracalla
The Baths of Caracalla are among the largest and best-preserved thermal complexes of antiquity. This imposing and majestic structure is located very close to the center of Rome, with large rooms and pools decorated with marble floors, mosaics, plaster. Our archaeologists have prepared a special guided tour for children that, aided by a map of the building and through games, riddles and clues, will lead them to a real “treasure”. A fun way to discover this place, which was not only a bath, but the place where the ancient Romans practiced sports, did spa treatments, studied and even discussed business.
How will the visit be structured?
Each child will receive their own notebook, map and compass. We will visit the archaeological park (about a 500 meter walk), stopping at prearranged stations where each child will get to solve clues through riddles, group games or looking for hidden objects. We have organized original and thematic games, designed for learning Roman history and for understanding how an ancient bath functioned. Each activity can be complemented with an in-depth study in the classroom, to be done after the “treasure hunt”. For this reason, each student will get to bring their own notebook home.
We recommend the presence of at least one adult (teacher or parent) per 10 pupils, so that we can coordinate the activities in the best way with the archaeological guide who will accompany the class.
