Licinian Baths

The Licinian Baths are quite interesting for having much of its original walls intact, as well as a long tunnel used by the slaves working at the baths. Also, from the baths are some fine views over the valley beyond.
The baths were donated to the city by the Licinii family in the 3rd century. They were primarily used as winter baths.
Look especially out for the frigidarium which has triple arcades at both ends and large windows with great views over the valley.
