    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.

    I say this is the most amazing dome in the world. It is perfection and it's been in place for centuries. It's free and while in Rome, you've got to go 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.

    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!

    Pantheon is another breath-taking place in Rome. Another place that is rich in history. The artist Raphael's tomb is inside and so is the first king of Italy. I would definitely go back to Rome.

    This hauntingly beautiful landmark is one of my favorite monuments in Rome. The history is interesting (temple to the Roman gods turned into Catholic church...) but mostly it’s that something about the architecture of the dome opening to the sky that's emotionally moving – on a visceral level. There isn’t a whole lot to see here, so it’s not going to occupy your whole afternoon, but it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood or you have the time.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A visit to the Pantheon requires you go inside to appreciate this amazing achievement of ancient Rome. The dome's circumference is still the largest in Rome and the occulus has to be marvelled at. Sometimes the crowds are huge but squeezing inside is worth the effort.

    The pantheon and the plaza outside it were well worth going and seeing and a good way to spend an hour or so. I felt our time here was rushed...we had a little bit of free time as part of an organized tour, would have loved to have had a little more time to avoid feeling so rushed.

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.
