Full description
Join a guided tour of the Pantheon and explore the history of the best-preserved monument from Ancient Rome. Founded in 25 BC as a temple to the 12 gods, the building went on to inspire one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance, Raphael. Walk in through the Corinthian columns brought all the way from Egypt, and step on the ancient original marble floor of the temple. Your guide will let you in on the engineering secrets that made this monument the only one of its size and age to have survived in tact from Roman times. Admire the beauty of its proportions as Michelangelo did when he first saw this architectural jewel, and discover the pagan rational behind them. Learn how the remains of many martyrs were removed from the Christian catacombs and placed in the Pantheon on the orders of Pope Boniface IV In 608. Marvel at the immense dome with a diameter of 43 meters, and its famous oculus that allows natural light to illuminate the beautiful interior.

      Premesso che eravamo solamente noi due alla visita e quindi avevamo a nostra disposizione la guida, l'esperienza è stata molto positiva. Francesca è stata molto esaustiva, alternando dati storici con storie anche magiche. Consiglio vivamente a tutti di visitare i monumenti, anche quelli più conosciuti con una guida perché l'esperienza e la conoscenza sono completamente diverse. Molto importante infatti è la possibilità di fare domande e avere delle risposte su praticamente tutto. Complimenti a Francesca e grazie.
