The Baths of Caracalla at the base of Aventine Hill are monumental ruins dating back as early as second century AD when taking a bath was a social event. Though the baths are now ruins, the complex did hold up until 1600 AD and even now unique details can still be seen.

From the baths, head for the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione near Via Veneto. In the basement of the church is a crypt with the bones of 4,000 Capuchin Monks, an unusual site, even for Rome. While there you can view remains nailed to walls in intricate patterns, with some even hanging from the ceiling as light fixtures.
