12 June, 13:00

    ROME - Daniela Porro, special superintendent for Rome, announced that the Baths of Caracalla complex is reopening on June 13 with new security measures as well as new spaces due to the absence this year of the large outdoor stage where the Rome Opera usually performs its summer season.
    She said a circular one-way itinerary as well as a separate entrance and exit have been implemented to ensure visitor safety.
    Porro said the Baths of Caracalla complex is "not only one of the most important and imposing archaeological sites in the capital, but also a lush green park where once can enjoy calmness and culture".
    A maximum of 40 visitors per hour can access the site (10 people every 15 minutes), 380 in an entire day, and all be inside at the same time while respecting social distancing.
    Site director Marina Piranomonte said this is a "new way to visit the Baths".
    "It's a chance for visitors to admire every detail of the majestic architecture, the refined mosaics, the celebrated gardens, and the solemn spaces full of history," Piranomonte said.
    Visitors must wear face masks in order to visit the site, temperatures will be taken at the entrance with access denied to anyone with a temperature higher than 37.5 degrees Celcius, and dispensers with hand sanitiser have been placed inside.
    The site is open from 9 a.m to 7:15 p.m. Thursday to Sunday, with the last entrance at 6 p.m.
