Crypta Balbi: originally a huge courtyard annexed to the theatre which Lucio Cornelio Balbo built for Augustus at the end of the first century A.D., the Crypta Balbi represents a development of Roman society and the urban landscape from antiquity to modern times.

As well as sporting the traditional pools of water at various temperatures (calidarium, frigidarium and tepidarium), the bath also included a central basilica, an open-air swimming pool and many other rooms which were put to various uses.
