  • With an attention drawing, old rugged exterior, it draws your eyes, not as an eyesore, but as a source of curiosity. On our visit we emerged from a narrow back street, and were greeted by its towering stone walls as we turned around a corner. Even if your first sight of it happens to be from the back, it is still one to behold. But first impressions mean very little after you've walked inside. Compared to its rugged exterior, the interior is pristine, a monument to hundreds of years of history laid bare on its walls. I opted not to pay for any of the audio guides, and found the signs to be plenty enough to give context to whatever I was looking at. The Pantheon is a great place to start a day of sightseeing, with many historical sites within walking distance, like the Colosseum, the roman forum and many others. Highly recommend!

  • My favorite sight in all of Rome bar none. I love the fact that this building is about two centuries old and once you go inside and view all the crypts it is a revelation. The dome architectural brilliance is mind boggling considering it was done about 2,000 years ago. A generation of father/sons probably worked on this and it is a testament to their artistic brilliance.

  • This place is beautiful. An obvious must see in while in Rome. Massive bronze doors are amazing....look up at the ceiling before walking in, it's pretty cool. Inside is even more amazing. P.s. There is an awesome meat and cheese shop to the right of here with yummy things. Other than that the restaurants here are pricey. Good rule of thumb is, if there is a host trying to get you to come into their restaurant, you DON'T want to eat there. Tourists trap $$.. Find a place where locals eat.

  • Very impressive both externally and internally. The ceiling inside is amazing to see. Need to keep quiet inside. There's a small souvenir shop by the entrance with postcards and the like. A great thing to see for free when exploring the centre or northwest of the city.

  • Very impressive historic building. Immense presence in middle of Rome. Queues to enter long but moved quickly. Visitors need to be covered to enter, well worth a visit. Huge hole in roof open to the elements, if visited s midday when sun I'd shining you will see beam of light
