Pantheon: things to know and tips
The Pantheon is one of the most famous attractions of central Rome, as well as one of the best-preserved buildings of the Imperial era, despite the many changes that have affected it over the centuries.
The Pantheon was first built in the Augustan age as the temple of all the gods, but the current structure is the result of a reconstruction ordered in 126AD by Emperor Hadrian. Subsequently, the Pantheon was converted into a church and still maintains the status of a Minor Basilica; inside, there are buried artists - including artist Raffaello Sanzio - and some of the kings of Italy.
The reason why the Pantheon attracts many tourists has to be found not only in its external facade, which still preserves the typical layout of an ancient temple, but also for its extraordinary internal structure, culminating in a dome with a central hole that lets in natural light.
The Pantheon is one of Rome's most admired tourist attractions, visited every year by millions of people. Among the best ways to visit it, we recommend one of the tours of Rome's historic centre, which include stops in this monument so rich in charm and history.
