Full description
Make your way to the Pantheon to explore the best-preserved monument of ancient Rome. Collect your audio guide at the desk inside the Pantheon to begin learning about its fascinating history.

Make use of 15 listening points and a map to locate points of interest inside the basilica. Learn the history of the building and how it later came to be used a church and a mausoleum.

The Pantheon, built between 25 and 27 B.C., is the only ancient Roman building that has remained nearly intact through the centuries. Dedicated to all the gods of Pagan Rome, the temple was built by the Emperor Hadrian on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus.

Classified as a temple, the original use of the Pantheon and how people worshipped there is unknown as the structure is different from other traditional Roman temples, such as the Roman Forum.

Everything went smooth. There was no line for the audioguide when we got there. We received a smartphone that had 15 tracks to play, each containing information about different aspects of Pantheon. I wish we would've gotten some headsets. The information was interesting, the English accent of the 2 speakers was easy to understand and their speach was easy to follow. I wish there was more information or at least more details about the overall meaning of the Pantheon and how people perceived it.

It was easy to exchange the voucher for the audio guide. The directions were easy to follow The narrative was very clear and complete. The best thing was that you could go back to places and listen again if you missed anything. Even though it was supposed to be 35 minutes, there was no time limit Very good.

Did not get to participate in the full experience. However, enjoyed the views and all that the Pantheon had to offer! Located within a great section of the city near many sight seeing attractions, cafes and restaurants. Highly recommended! Ensure walking shoes are worn during any visit to this area!
