Terme di Nerone o Alessandrine/ The Baths of Nero or Alessandrine (as built by Nero and restored by Alessandro Severo) had a bath complex of ancient Rome. This baths were built by Nero in 62 A.D. and reconstructed by Alexander Severus in 227 A.D. on the territory between present Piazza della Rotonda and Corso Rinascimento, and Via Pozzo delle Cornacchie and Piazza S.Eustachio, adjacent to Palazzo Giustiniani (Palazzo Madama, Italian Parliament/Senato Della Repubblica). Two columns from these baths are now on the side of Chiesa di S.Eustachio, and two other columns were places in pronaos of Pantheon in the 17th century.
The layout of the complex, a square shape, is known from Renaissance drawings and it is likely, although not certain, that was the same as the time of Nero. At the center is the natatio (pool) and hot and cold rooms, flanked by side rooms, including two in peristyles function perhaps of gyms.
