Full description
Meet your guide on Piazza della Minerva in the heart of Rome to enter the best-preserved monument of Ancient Rome. Marvel at one of the most fabled temples of the Roman Empire.

Get a detailed history of the Pantheon from your guide, who will point out ground-breaking features, such as the coffered concrete dome. Take a look at the oculus in the center of the dome, allowing natural light to illuminate the building while lightening the structural load. Initially a temple, the Pantheon is now one of the most spectacular churches in Rome and acts as the mausoleum to the tombs of Raphael, King Victor Emmanuel II and Queen Margherita among others.

Then, make your way to the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva behind the Pantheon and explore the church where the popes of the Florentine Medici family were buried. Admire the church interior, covered in artworks by Michelangelo.
