    Stunning Inside & Out
    The Pantheon is an amazing survivor. It was built by the Roman emperors Agrippa and Hadrian and has survived intact and remained in almost constant use since. From the outside, the façade has all the typical features of a Roman temple including a portico, Corinthian columns and a stately pediment. The emperor Hadrian added the rotunda around 126 AD. The queue is often long but don’t be put off by this because the inside is incredible and is completely different to the outside. You should absolutely see both. In any case, the crowd moves quite quite quickly because people don’t stay inside for long. You can pay for an audio guide inside. We didn't and in hindsight, we probably should have. It would have been much better to hear about the structure while we were actually there. If you don’t do the audioguide or tour, then I’d recommend doing some reading beforehand. As you enter, the first thing to notice are the marble floor tiles. This is the original ancient Roman floor. I was very taken with the thought that I was walking across the same floor that ancient Romans had also walked on. The next thing you notice is that the interior is perfectly proportioned. The diameter of the rotunda is 43.3m which is exactly the same as its height – a perfect space. The dome is the real jaw-dropper. It is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. Never been beaten. That is quite an engineering feat and it required a few building tricks to stop the weight of the dome from causing the whole thing to collapse. To avoid disaster, they built the foundations and lower walls out of heavy materials, then as they built upwards, they made the concrete thinner and added pumice so that it was quite lightweight. Finally, as you look up, you stare into the the oculus, the ‘eye’ of the dome. It might look small but that’s just an optical illusion because the interior is so big. The oculus is actually 8.2m across. The sunlight streams through it, stopping the interior from being gloomy and dark. Rain can also stream through but it drains away in the centre. Before you leave, do a lap around the walls because there are also several noteworthy tombs including Raphael and the first kings of Italy, Victor Emmanuel II and Umberto I.

    Self guided look - amazing place
    End October 2019: This structure is tucked away and if you didn't know about it you may just miss out. It's not too far from the Trevi fountain by foot. [We came from there]. We stood in a queue for about 15minutes and we were also in competition with tour groups. It was quite hot here despite being the nd of October, but there is a neat fountain to check out while waiting, plus quite a few gelato or cafes nearby to get drinks from and plenty of souvenir places. They let people enter in groups of about 20. There is tight security as well checking as you go past, visually. Once inside it is quite spectacular. Things to look out for once inside: 1. Stand in the middle and look up at the dome - its magnificent and has a hole and the sun streams through it - water comes in and runs off the slightly slanted floors 2. It is the burial site of Raphael and many famous kings and poets 3. The 16 columns are from Egypt 4. The fountain infant is called 'The Fountain of the Pantheon' 5. It can get quite busy, but time the time to sit and look at the alter and walk all the way around to look at the carvings, marble and sculptures. You can do tours that go into rear church parts at a cost. We were there for less than an hour, including waiting time.

    The temple of all the gods
    Luckily, the Pantheon was not crowded at all in December, so I was there almost every day of my ten day trip to Rome (it is free to enter). Surprisingly, even the tomb of Rafael was not out of reach and easy to get to. The rotunda’s chapels, its coffered concrete dome with an oculus, the tombs, the altar, the columns retain their perfect shape after almost two thousand years after the Pantheon was built. You can only wonder how remarkably this marvel of the Ancient Rome is preserved.

A wonderfully informative tour of this stunning building by a charming and obviously knowledgeable young lady expert (10.00 tour on 23rd September 2023). I have visited the Pantheon previously but gained new insights today. I thoroughly recommend this tour. My deduction of one star was purely because of the strangely complicated ticket system requiring the visitor to go to the Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina to collect the entry ticket 45 minutes before the tour and then to quickly get to the Pantheon. We spotted this on Internet reviews but other folk were caught by it causing unpleasant aggrevation and delays. I would also complement the Pantheon ticket staff for their helpfulness. I lost a hearing aid during the visit only realising later and returned to the Pantheon later in the day where they were extremely helpful and assisted me in recovering it from under the ticket and book sales desk!

It’s unreal and so beautiful to witness it in yourself. The place was so busy but beautiful.

If you are in Rome highly recommended to visit.

We should have been told that we would have to wait for our tour guide. It was extremely hot and humid and made for an uncomfortable experience.

Very wonderful tour with lots of great information! Given that the sites are VERY packed, the tour guide gave us as much information as she could while the route around the sites continued to move! Very informative and she was very polite and entertaining!

This was a mandatory stop on our historical centre day. However, while the history of the place so impressed us, the inside was a bit underwhelming compared to all the beauty we had seen previously.

We were able to reserve within a few days. An email to its reservation deck quickly helped us figure out how to do as the site wasn't accepting our Canadian cards.

The Pantheon is a must see sight in Rome. If you are visiting without a tour guide, read about it in advance, as the unbelievable roof engineering cannot be seen.

Truly spectacular inside, incredible dome and very well preserved. Audio guide was very helpful and informative. Definitely worth seeing.

Information on voucher collection was clear. I think the additional written instructions in advance could be improved to indicate that this is an independent tour and after your skip the line entry you head independently to the audio headset desk to collect your headset and then start the audio tour (independently).

BEWARE THE PANTHEON TOUR.
AVOID WWW.PANTHEONROMA.COM

Absolute scam! The church is clearly trying to scam tourists and isn’t capable of handling tours to the Pantheon.

I bought online tickets for their Pantheon tour, which said to show up to a location 10 minutes away to get the physical tickets. When I arrived, I was told to walk back to the Pantheon and wait in line to meet the tour guide inside and that I would likely miss the tour. When I purchased the tickets, there was no instruction on how early to arrive. Like most normal tours, I assumed it would be fine if I showed up at their ticket counter 10-15 minutes for the tour was supposed to start. Instead I was berated for their lack of clear instructions and missed the tour altogether.

Competent (and nice) tour companies manage this process much better. They print the tickets in advance, the tour guide meets folks at the tour location (not at some random location 10 minutes away), and then everyone goes in line at once.

These folks are incompetent and rude. The woman at the counter was vile, and clearly shows that the church is just a scam with untrustworthy people. There’s a reason why they are losing followers and money. They are VILE.
