Thermae of Constantine

Arles, France

The Thermae of Constantine (Baths of Constantine), the Roman bathing complex, dates from the 4th century AD. Of the once-extensive series of buildings, which resembled a palace, only the Caldarium (warm bath) and parts of the Hypocaust (underfloor heating) and the Tepidarium (warm air room) remain. The Thermae of Constantine has been listed as World Heritage Sites since 1981.

good place

In this place, you can feel the greatness of the empire!

There is very little remaining of what must have been an impressive structure, still worth a visit if you are in the area and you have a spare half hour.

This is a simple attraction, but it is well worth a look. There is limited information on English, but you don't need much. Again the Arles multisite pass is really good value - quick look for free, or on its own 4 euro.

Old Roman baths from the 1st century. A shadow of its former self at just one third the former area. However if you let your imagination loose anything can happen. Worth a visit if you are stuck for something to do or just happen upon it as you walk the back streets

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
