The Forum Bath of Pompeii

Pompeii, like any Roman city, was built around The Forum.

Temples, government buildings, businesses, and baths surround the stadium-sized open area where citizens gathered in the shadow of their ultimate demise, Mount Vesuvius.

The Forum Baths maybe the most intact of the ruins of Pompeii. These are one of three public baths and survived the eruption remarkably well.

The Forum Bath of Pompeii

Unlike most all of the other buildings, the roof of the baths remained in place so the inside was relatively unharmed.

The ornate decorations and many of the frescos survived, so we got a fairly good feel for what it would have been like to take a soak back in the first century BC.

Talk about a hot tub time machine!
