Is and always will be one of my favorite places in Rome. To step into the Pantheon on a hot day with little crowds is like stepping into another world. They way the sun shines down on the floor and the peacefulness of the place is just overwhelming. Knowing this incredible building was built at a time when technology and engineering advancements were so much more limited is incredible. Skip other major tourist spots but don't skip this one!

The Pantheon is a marvel. It's the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world and built around 146 AD. It was built as a house for all gods but now is a Roman Catholic church in Rome. The architecture is amazing. We had seen it from the outside and our tour manager suggested that we go inside to have a look. It's simply amazing. The height to the oculus and the interior diameter of the inner circle are the same at 142 ft. The oculus itself is the main source of natural light. When we went inside, it was raining and rain was coming in from the ceiling itself. It's a must seen when in Rome and I can't imagine not getting the chance because it's free to enter. The building is set by a gorgeous fountain and there are plenty of shops surrounding it. If you are in Rome, do visit and witness for yourself the majesty that is the Pantheon.

One of my favorite landmarks in the world, the Pantheon is absolutely a show-stopper. Too bad it was co-opted and turned into a church! Worth a stop especially if it's raining. I stared in disbelief that no water entered inside. Amazing feat for sure. Beautifully lit at night. There are lots of cafes nearby if you want to sit and admire the view. A must-see in Rome.

The pantheon is one of the best preserved ancient buildings in rome and is was built as a temple to all gods. It has a whole on the dome so the light comes in - so avoid it when it's raining. Today it is used as a catholic church, known as the Santa Maria della Rotonda.
