Pantheon, Rome

#2 of 51,934 in Things to do in Italy
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.

  • The dome of the building was extremely high, but there was not much depth from the door to pulpit, but as with most older European churches, it still had quite ornate decor. Our guide stayed that...  more »

  • Iconic. Amazing place. Possibly the best place I visited in Rome. Free to enter as it's still a working Church. From the outside is big, "round" and imposing concrete. Inside it's detailed, colourful and instills a need for quiet. Originally a Roman Temple it was dedicated to numerous god's (hence the name) and holds the body of Raphael. There are audio and video points (couple of euros) which give a good overview of the place.
  • This was one of the top places we went to when in Rome. It is incredible, you walk down a little side road then suddenly this huge monster appears. Grey and dull looking, then you pass through some giant doors into a stunning room. It's worth making the effort to go and see this stunning location.
