The Pantheon was my favorite place to visit when I was in Rome. This 2000 year old basilica is a marvel of engineering. To this day architects do not know the mixture of concrete that was used to achieve the strength and lightness of the grand dome. Go during midday when a beam of sunshine illuminates the interior. The atmosphere is absolutely electric and will make you feel as if you are in the presence of the emperors themselves.

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.

The best preserved temple of antiquity, and dedicated to All Gods (Pan Theon in ancient Greek) it was built in one stage with concrete (an invention of Romans), still with the largest dome to this day in Rome (diameters of 43.3 meters), which was also achieved with the invention of coffered ceiling to make it lighter.

It's another historic gem located in the heart of Rome. If possible, if you're in Rome during the summer, I would advise visiting the Pantheon during the day but come back at night. While the Pantheon will be closed, the outside will be lit up in a golden ray against the sapphire blue sky.

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.

The Pantheon is one of the most amazing buildings on the planet. I swear it's an energy vortex. Sit on a side bench, breathe, meditate, and feel the eons swirl around you. From Roman temple, to medieval church, to tourist attraction, it's held it's own. Zone out, and watch the disc of light from the open portal in the ceiling, circle the room as the sun moves through the sky. I love it. I visit every time I'm in Rome.

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.
