Pantheon, Rome

4.7
#2 of 13,103 in Historic Sites in Italy
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.

  • tRAS a classic facade with Greek columns hides the pantheon which is round. It has a hole in the ceiling through which light enters and served as a time clock. If it rains the water enters and it is a fantastic show., They are buried Vittorio Emmanuele and other elders of the Italia Unita after 1870. It's worth seeing.

  • Come here early in the morning before the visiting has opened and you'll be in for a treat. Take a photo with barely anyone else in frame, dine at the cafes out front with a picturesque view. Interesting to learn about the drainage system they have in place when it rains
  • Another amazing place in Rome! I love the name, the architecture of this huge stone building, the layout, the art work, I was in awe! Waking in here I was amazed at the tall ceiling and the overall feel of it. Not much to do here, but this place is extremely beautiful and full of history. This city honestly has so many cool spots that are so significant you run out of adjectives.
