Nearly 2,000 years old, Pantheon is the only building from the Greco-Roman world that has remained substantially intact and in continuous use throughout its long history. A marvel of ancient architecture, it still boasts the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. Originally designed to be a temple to all the gods of the ancient Rome, the site has been used as a Roman Catholic church, dedicated to St. Mary, since the seventh century. The building features large, granite Corinthian columns. Don't skip this site if it's raining; seeing and hearing the rain pouring into this ancient building through the hole in the ceiling is a special experience.

  • Pantheon is a must when you visit Rome. The building is impressive with its dome on top of the temple. The best time to visit seems to be in the morning.

  • As the title suggests, seeing this in real life was a totally unexpected surprise despite seeing it in pictures previously. A must see.

  • A beautiful place with classical architecture. I recommend you see it with your own eyes. You must have a reservation on weekends, but during the week there is no problem with getting in. It is worth taking a look inside because there is something to see there. Everything is in perfect condition, beautiful sculptures and paintings. The perfect place to start exploring Rome.
  • Very impressive and with lots of history inside and outside. Not sure with the entrance requirements ( 1st July 2022). Sometimes you just show up and can go inside and other days you need a prior booking. To be sure best book in advance if you are planning, or size the opportunity if you're paying by and see no queue.
