Know More about this tour

Begin your 2-hour walking tour in front of the Pantheon, one the most iconic attractions in the world and a definite must-see while in Rome. Marvel at the spectacular architecture and stature of this beautifully preserved Roman building as you learn about its fascinating history from your guide, an expert in ancient Roman history and archaeology.

Originally constructed to honor the gods of ancient Rome, the Pantheon was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian in 126 AD (can you even think back that far?), and has been in continuous use since the 7th century as a Roman Catholic church. Walk among the large granite Corinthian columns that line the entrance, and step inside to appreciate the grandeur. Nearly 2,000 years after its construction, the Pantheon's unreinforced dome remains the largest in the world!

Continue on foot to Piazza di Pietra, pausing to admire the remains and still-standing Corinthian columns of the Temple of Hadrian. Another one of Rome's most impressive sites, this temple was built by Hadrian’s adopted son in 145 AD.

Proceed to Santa Maria in Via Lata, a fine example of Roman religious architecture. Beneath this present-day church lay the remains of a 5th-century chapel. Legend has it that St Paul spent two years here while awaiting his trial. Enter the underground crypt and visit an ancient Roman well where it’s claimed fresh water ran in answer to the saint's prayers during his imprisonment.

Bid adieu to your guide at the church, the perfect spot to continue exploring down Via del Corso.

  • A lovely tour of the Pantheon, the Temple of Hadrian, and many beautiful churches one of which was in the Gothic style. We had an exceptional guide and were accompanied by only one other couple which made for a nice intimate little group.

  • Our tour was excellent only 3 in our group, think the guide was Musamo sorry if spelt wrong, he was very knowledgeable and had lots of interesting facts to share would recommend this tour

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The pantheon was one of my favorites. The history of the artwork and the artwork it and #39;s self is just unbelievable. It was so beautiful.

  • My wife and I liked it but the guide was a little hard to understand and I wish we would have spent more time inside the Pantheon.

  • Good tour. I wish the guide had been a little louder. It was hard to hear in the crowd.

  • The guide was good, but his English was a bit restricted so his explanations about things were overly simple. At the Pantheon, we only toured the interior. Later, when we returned on our own, we discovered the exterior was quite intriguing and wondered about many different details.

  • Excellent tour and guide!!!! Thanks

  • Excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide.
