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.

    Absolutely worth the time (and it was brief ~45 min or so); we went in the mid-afternoon and the entrance is not well marked (was on the right, and we started waiting on the left). Once in the building, the tour was amazing - so cool to see and hear the context of the amazing structure. Also the Piazza Navona is within a 10 minute walk, same with the Trevi fountain (other direction)

    The tour was nice! The guide was friendly, had a decent grasp of English (spoke with a bit of an accent), and was very knowledgeable. The tour gives insight into the building (how it was constructed, the composition), who is buried there, and the significance of the building on the rest of Rome.

    Our tour guide was Julia and she was excellent. We arrived early and walked around and questioned if we should stay longer for the guided tour. It was definitely worth the wait. She provided details about the open ceiling, the built in draining holes that we glanced over. She provided so much detail on the dome, the floors, the tombs of Victor Emmanuel and Raphael, etc. Great Tour!!!
