Pantheon - Review
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!

Pantheon, Rome Reviews
The Pantheon is one of the only places in Rome with free admission. This grand structure is located in a very chill neighborhood. The plaza directly in front of the Pantheon is a great place to people watch or rest. The structure is almost 2000 years old, and is a miracles that it's still preserved as well as it is. The opening at the top allows divine light to enter from the top of the building. I could totally imagine ancient Roman emperors coming to communicate with the gods.
What could someone say after 50k+ reviews? It's a true wonder. A huge dome built almost 2,000 years ago and surprisingly well preserved. The artwork inside is truly amazing. It's a not to be missed not because it's free (that's another miracle especially in Italy). Yes, it gets crowded as other people want to see it, too. Security is high but not disturbing. Even the neighborhood is interesting. (Skip the restaurants around here as they tend to be unreasonably expensive offering mediocre quality.)
It's breathtaking place. If you never been there and have never seen it, it will shock you once you see it. When I arrived to the place I walked out via a side street and the moment I saw it I was without words. The size of the place is unreal. The pictures cannot explain the actual size of it. Inside is huge and had good architecture to it. It's beautiful building with huge history behind it. You have to try it, entrance is for free, you don't need to get a guide to get into it unless you are willing to pay for someone to explain what this place is all about. Just keep your bag nearby as there are many people and peacefully walk around the building to explore it's beauty.
A very impressive building because one almost steps into the dome. The somewhat larger dome of St. Peter is less impressive because it is situated on top of an enormous sanctuary at a great height above floor level. The Pantheon is the oldest building of its kind (1700 years old) and ancestor to the containment buildings for pressurized water reactors (those have no hatch or other opening at the top). Unfortunately, the original bronze doors were destroyed to produce cannons from the material. The present doors are about 300-400 years old (older than the USA), weigh 5000 kg and move easily enough to be opened and closed by a 13-year-old.
The Pantheon is a mightily impressive building in the heart of Rome. When viewed from afar it stands out on the skyline, but when navigating at street level it is well hidden amongst the streets of Rome and appears to you majestically as you approach it around a corner. Inside it is the most striking as you wonder how they built that massive dome 2000 years ago. You have to be inside to appreciate the vastness and genius of engineering to create it. If you go early then you can avoid the crowds, any other times then you can expect your photo's to be crashed by random tourists staring upwards. Please be aware that this is a religious place and as such you should remain as quiet as possible.
