Top sights in Rome
Until the 20th century The Pantheon was the largest concrete structure in the world and a source of architectural study for Michelangelo among others! Here's some intersting facts for you to digest before you plan a visit.
As one of the oldest functioning structures in Rome, the Pantheon has had many uses. Primarily, it is a burial place for several important Italian historical figures.
The first instinct when you enter the Pantheon is to look up in awe at the magnificent dome overhead. It is the world's largest dome made of unreinforced solid concrete.
When you enter the Pantheon and look around you'll notice tombs set into the walls. Audio guides and tours are avaliable to explain more about who's who!
While it's famous for its rotunda, the Pantheon's grand portico entrance is a sight to behold in itself. Take a moment to wander amongst the beautiful corinthian columns before you leave.
The only source of light in the Pantheon comes from the Oculus in the ceiling. This large hole floods the room with light and instantly draws the eye!
Opening times vary throughout the year. The Basilica is open weekdays from 9:00AM to 7:30PM. On Sunday from 9:00AM to 6:00PM. On public holidays that fall during the workweek, the Basilica will stay open from 9:00AM to 1:00PM. Closed on: January 1st, May 1st, and December 25th.
Not a thing. The Pantheon is free to visit all year round! This makes it the perfect spot to pop in and out of on a trip to Rome, or to linger a while longer and take a guided tour.

What people are saying about Pantheon
This is a perfect way to see Rome at sunset. We had been on our feet all day at the Vatican museum and Basilica etc. and really could not have done with any more walking around. Giulia was very knowledgeable and is a wonderfully warm person. Of course, having done uni in the US, her English is impeccable. She greeted us with a beer and the whole trip was great from start to finish. With a maximum of 6 people on the tour it was absolutely a unique experience to learn about the history of an incredible city and have access that only a golf cart can provide (kerbside at the colosseum? No problem). I truly cannot recommend this tour (and Giulia) enough. Her love of Rome and her brother’s passion to share Roman history with tourists is wonderful. PS, her brother owns the business with his wife and it certainly feels like a family affair - but completely professional at the same time. My two sisters and I only had 2 days in Rome and this tour made it possible to see as much as possible!
The tour itself is excellent, the guide is very enthusiastic. Easy to find the meeting point and convenient drop off. The only draw back is they could manage the timing of the bus better. The bus send us back to the port 25 mins later than expected, leaving us only 5 mins before the all aboard time. So a group of us have to run to the port shuttle to catch the last shuttle back to ship. A bit scared that we would miss the ship but luckily we are all fine and we are not alone.
booked this tour couple of days before i visited. Even though it was early in day (9:15) it worked out well as when day progresses it gets hot. Mat our guide was very good, kept everyone engaged, covered all the places within 3 hrs time (time seemed less believe me) including Pantheon (which was not on list). Worth the price as you can see many attractions within short time frame including getting familiar with history behind the attractions.
Overall this tour was excellent. The concept of going at your own pace , hopping on and off is a great approach for a bewildered tourist. What I would do better; maybe explain to the audience when and where the free walking tours begin and how long should one plan for them.Terry from Calgary, Canada
Really enjoyed this facility in learning about Rome, which has so much to offer. Also used to book visits to specific sites we wanted to spend more time at. Loved that we could get on and off to experience certain places more indepth. Would definitely use again in other cities.
