Capo di Bove in Rome

Show Map
This is a recently opened archaeological site displaying the thermal baths of the villa of the wealthy Herod Atticus. Also in the complex is a restored villa, until recently a private residence, that has an exterior completely covered with pieces from Roman ruins, including pipes used in the baths. There are some very helpful staff to show you around, although they only speak Italian. Almost opposite the entrance to the baths is a ruined tower known as the Torre di Capo di Bove.
