Who knew Marie Curie and Victor Hugo would one day share a room? As would Braille and Voltaire? But that’s exactly what happened here at the Pantheon, where the greatest of France sleep. Once a chapel devoted to St. Genevieve, it is now a mausoleum for the most prominent of French poets, writers, artists and scientists. It is also the locationastronomer Jean Bernard Leon Foucault’s famous pendulum experiment, which physically proved that the Earth rotates on its axis. Peaceful, noble and solemn, it is an early feature of neoclassicism, with a veneer displayed on the Pantheon in Rome, surmounted by an arch that owes some of its character to Bramante's Tempietto. Gazing over all of Paris, the Pantheon is best approached from Jardin du Luxemborg (Luxemborg Gardens). Pantheon Paris tourist attraction added in suggested 5 Days Paris Itinerary

Incredible building. You have time your visit though because the hours are strange. Be sure you have enough time to wander around and see all the tombs of the famous people. There's a Rick Steve's audio tour of the pantheon that's free to download and is great info so you know what you're looking at. The dome is magnificent! It gets very crowded in there but the lines to enter moves quickly
Great educational opportunity around the Roman founding of the city in the form of a documentary film. This isn't a architectural tour on the inside. Rather its converted to a movie theatre. If you're a history buff, the high production value documentary is excellent.
With its romanesque style of architecture, this monument really stands out. The view inside is as magnificent as its outside. Understood that it is now a place where the past famous people of France are buried. You can feel Its quietness and tranquility and peace once you step inside which is befitting its purpose. A good respite from all the walking and to reflect and contemplate while marvelling at its interior. Its another must visit on the Paris trail. Again, i give a 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.
Impressive in symbolics and size. It is not possible to get closer to the most important graves (sarcophagus), but only to observe from the small doors of the room where they are located. Of course, it is a very important place and you should definitely visit it.
A mesmerizing monument where dimensions and physics fuse to form a perfect harmony. Usually, the Foucault's pendulum is fixated to the dome and shows the deviation created by the rotation of the Earth. The Pantheon is also a highly-spirited place because of its crypt which is the home for eternal rest of grandiose men and women of the French Republic. Be they scientists, politicians, military officers or philosophers they all share the greatness of this monument.
