How Did the Romans Bathe?

Was there “wellness” back in Antiquity? In the old Western Roman capital, this question can be answered with a resounding “yes!” Where could bathing in Antiquity be better demonstrated than in Trier, where the Romans built as many as three large bathing facilities? It’s no wonder that the Romans felt comfortable here, resided here, and left the Moselle Valley only after about 500 years under the immense pressure of the "Barbarians".
The walking tour is generally limited to the recently discovered Forum Baths from the 1st century (inside) and the Imperial Baths from Late Antiquity (inside) with its gigantic hall and an extensive “plumbing” system.
