Pantheon, Rome
(4.7/5 based on 44,000+ reviews on the web)
Nearly 2,000 years old, Pantheon is the only building from the Greco-Roman world that has remained substantially intact and in continuous use throughout its long history. A marvel of ancient architecture, it still boasts the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. Originally designed to be a temple to all the gods of the ancient Rome, the site has been used as a Roman Catholic church, dedicated to St. Mary, since the seventh century. The building features large, granite Corinthian columns. Don't skip this site if it's raining; seeing and hearing the rain pouring into this ancient building through the hole in the ceiling is a special experience. Make Pantheon a part of your Rome vacation plans using our Rome travel itinerary maker.

  • Overcrowded this visit but still a great place to visit any time .Remember the Pantheon it now a church so show the same courtesy when visiting as you would to your own place of worship .Take a seat a...  more »
  • Into a large circular Hall. Enjoy the 360-degree look at tiles, sculptures and paintings. So there was space to pray, sitting in the front area, but almost a tourist, was resting. Going in the evening and in the dark is a little hard to see. But the minute the atmosphere.

  • Great piece of history but also easily missed compared to the other monument in Italy. Cheap restaurants cafes around and a lot of public transport

  • Extremely underwhelming! Thankfully the lines moved quick and you're able to get indoors quickly. The entrance is grand, mainly due to the majestic doors! However, once inside, there is very little to catch your eye for too long and keep you interested.
  • The exterior looks old and crumbly, though still impressive for its age. Then, you go inside and immediately at awe - the beautiful hole in the roof gives a wonderful light to the interior, which is decorated with very nice works of art. The interior looks much more kept than the exterior. Recommended!
  • lovely place, though it looks dirty from the outside, is well taken care of in the inside. This church is a good place for sightseeing and if you are roman catholic it has an area for prayer. the square outside is filled with people so it is usually a fun place to visit.
  • Very impressive building. We visited easily on a Thursday afternoon with small crowds. Crowds were insane when we passed on a Friday and Saturday. Was free also, which is proper order as there is nothing to do inside but look.
  • One of the top attractions in Rome. Biggest concrete dome ever built with diameter and height of 43,3 meters. Best preserved ancient building in Rome mainly because it was in continuous use either as a temple (dedicated to every god) or a church. Impressive portico. A must see in Rome, it is highly recommended._
