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.

Iconic. Amazing place. Possibly the best place I visited in Rome. Free to enter as it's still a working Church. From the outside is big, "round" and imposing concrete. Inside it's detailed, colourful and instills a need for quiet. Originally a Roman Temple it was dedicated to numerous god's (hence the name) and holds the body of Raphael. There are audio and video points (couple of euros) which give a good overview of the place.
Smaller than I thought but still quite beautiful monument. I wouldn't have made the effort to go there for this specifically if I knew. Could be visited as part of a nice shopping round. The area is good for shopping anyway. Took nice pictures.
Roma, a City drenched in abundant historical sites. Walking through this city excites all your senses. You wonder what technology existed to enable them put up these edifices. The intricacies of the design at the time speaks volume of the thinking of the Roman rulers. The glory of Rome. My very first sight of the pantheon brought me inner happiness.
Definitely the best ancient place to visit in Rome in my book. Look up "10 most important facts you need to know about the Pantheon" on google when you visit, and it will make your visit more meaningful. It's incredible that it's 2,000 years old, that the dome is one of the largest in the world, and that its in the condition that it's in.
It is an absolutely magnificent structure that (luckily) is so well preserved. Pictures do not do it justice. While you are there, do not forget to check out the beautiful marble floors - still original from the Roman times! An added bonus is that there is no enter an entrance fee.
