This ancient monument is probably as recognizable and iconic as the Colloseum in Rome. The Pantheon was commissioned by Marcus Agrippa and was originally meant to be a temple dedicated all of the different gods and goddesses in Roman mythology.
The dome of the Pantheon is to this day the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. There have been and continue to be extensive preservation work done to the Pantheon which has helped it stay in pristine condition. One will certainly feel like he or she is transported back to the days of olden Rome when they visit this landmark.
Today, the Pantheon is dedicated to ‘St. Mary and the Martyrs’ and is a symbol of Christian dominance in Rome. It is locally referred to as Santa Maria della Rotonda. Plan a trip to Rome and see this architectural wonder for yourself!

Very nice place, the coolest part of this site is the history. I would recommend reading about it, watching a documentary, or researching some of the history of this building along with the surrounding area to get a better appreciation. Also, if the opportunity arises, take a food tour that incorporates a guided discussion about the pantheon. The more you know going there the more you can ingest and feel inspired. Remember that this is a tourist destination and many of the locations around it are geared at selling you something. Try to appreciate the history.
The Pantheon is beautiful! It is a very peaceful and calming space. A lot quieter and more respectful than the hustle and bustle in St Peter’s. We sat quietly for a while here. There is also a modern sculpture/ mixed media art display on at the moment.
Hard to not be wowed by this place. Despite visiting nine years ago I had forgotten how big and beautiful it was. We visited with our children who had a kid's guide of what to spot. It was great for picking small details out for us too, like the drainage holes dotted around the floor! We were also rather lucky in that our visit coincided with a choir singing. It just made it that bit more special!
Beautiful monument worth visiting! Entrance is free you just have to stand in line and wait to be let in. But it is definitely worth it. The beauty of it is amazing! Well preserved and the inside is like something you haven't seen before! The staff are pleasant to give you more information and it is clearly outlined where to enter and exit.
It is a good idea to go "off season" if you can. The fewer people there, the better, however the most impressive element of this site is the roof. It is an architectural masterpiece. Their were ahead of their times with what the achieved. Download a travel app (we used Rick Steve's) so that you can enjoy all the Pantheon has to offer. It is free, and doesn't take very long to see, so this definitely should earn a spot on one of your days in Rome.
