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.

Overwhelming that this building was built in 142 AD & still stands today. Not only stands, but is in daily use, as a church. No longer does it serve ALL the God's, the Pantheon of God's, but Jesus Christ. I'd like to think, him a carpenter & aware how things were built, he'd be impressed by the engineering it took to build this. The floor is original. The ceiling, with it's opening admitting the light (& rain - with careful drains - built in in 142 AD), the beautiful walls are marvel. Well worth the time to see. Be sure to get the audio guide so you go, from station to station, to see and understand what you are seeing. You do not need to guided by an expensive human guide, just rent the audio guide an DIY. We were told an hour and a half (tops), but spent nearly three, but we asked to be admitted to the Chapel area, to pray. [You must ask one of the uniformed guards to let you beyond the ropes.] So maybe two & a half hours to see it? Very worthwhile two and a half hours in Roma. You DO need tickets, which you can order online, from the Pantheon itself. They give you a day & time for admittance.
One of my favourite spots in Rome. This is a MUST visit. You need to schedule a tour time on their website but the visit is free. I would recommend getting the audio guide inside which will walk you through the meaning and the history of this imposing structure. This is a 30-min guide that will help you appreciate the Pantheon. Especially fascinating to hear about how it was built! Also recommend to visit this site during the day and also at night. It’s a completely different experience. Have a Spritz across the Pantheon for a stunning view at sunset. Yes, the Spritz is overpriced but you are paying for the view!
