    Built around the time of Christ, the Pantheon is a magnificent structure and a must see. There is an opening in the ceiling and is absolutely beautiful inside.

    Rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian in 126 AD, the Pantheon was originally a temple to the Roman gods and is today a Catholic church, example of stunning architecture, burial place of Raphael, and is one of the examples of Rome's great free attractions.

    It is ironical that a temple based on multiple Gods has been converted to a church which symbolizes one God. But, so is everything in Rome. Definitely an architectural wonder. It's amazing how the Pantheon has been maintained across centuries!

    This is one of my favorite monuments in Rome. It's a functioning church, so open and free to enter. The dome is one of the largest in Europe, and has a hole in the center because, well, that was the best technology they had available over 2000 years ago. So, yes, it rains and snows inside. The giant columns outside are impressive and offer the feeling of touching ancient-ness. If you go at night, it's exceptionally well lit and even more atmospheric since the crowds are gone. However, the real reason I love the Pantheon is that I once saw a funeral here (bear with me) and at the end, as they brought the coffin out, the whole crowd applauded, as if to appreciate this one person's proverbial hour upon the stage.

    The most complete Roman structure in the city and still to this day one of the largest domes in the world - all made of Roman concrete as well!

    Lovely church. Most interesting feature is the hole in the roof. Makes for an interesting visit in the rain.

    Amazing architecture that really cannot be rivaled today. Come early for the best views inside and out...before the fake Roman soldiers show up. There is also a great gelato shop nearby.

    I love history and monuments and during my visit last christmas season I was lucky to encounter an orchestra playing inside the Pantheon which made my visit more magical.

    Constructed before the birth of Christ, the Pantheon was originally a temple, and years later became a Catholic Church. The remains of Raphael, the great artist, are buried in the Pantheon.

    Great for history lovers and the free admission is a nice change of pace after all the $$ you spend all over Rome elsewhere. Final resting place of Rafael and other famous roman kings.

    A masterpiece of Ancient Rome. "Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome."

    Hey, it's the Pantheon. You've seen this in every collage that exists of Rome, I'm sure. It should be noted that it is free and pretty cool, considering how old it is. It is also the building of which I won a bet on-- there ARE no straight lines used in the building of the Pantheon! The architects added slight curvature to everything to account for the curvature of the human eye.

    That said: entrance is free. You will also probably pass the Pantheon three times or more during your stay in Rome. That's what happened to me.

    The feeling of love at first sight, with an ancient architecture of monumental significance. We explored the Pantheon during our midnight stroll in downtown Rome, which at this time is still buzzing with people under a different type of light. I saw the monument and immediately got my heart stolen. The Pantheon is the best preserved building from imperial Rome, under the moonlight, it's shining with all its former and present glory, with it's overarching columns speaking out volume of history that it has witnessed over the thousands of years standing.
    Must see in Rome!

    The pantheon is beautiful and a feat of engineering. It's also small (relative to the other attractions of Rome). It's absolutely worth visiting (admission is free), but don't force yourself to spend an hour there because you think you should.

Description

Commissioned by Marcus Agrippa, restored by Domitian, and subsequently rebuilt by Hadrian (who added the dome), the Pantheon was turned into a church in the early 7th Century by Pope Boniface IV. The building's sole source of light is the opening at the dome's apex (the oculus). Many famous Italians are buried in the Pantheon, including Renaissance painter Raphael and King Vittorio Emanuele I.
