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
Our guide was Priscilla. She was excellent. Walked at a comfortable pace. Was on time. Lots of knowledge.
It is the best way to see all of Rome in the shortest amount of time. This tour was wonderfully planned out. We only had two days in Italy and this made me feel like I got the most out of my time! I was worried when I booked the trip I wouldn't have enough time to see Rome but I saw almost everything I needed to see, and it never felt rushed. The tour guide was amazing. He was easy to understand and the ear pieces helped out. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions, it was great that he was local to the area. I have no complaints at all, completely worth the price. This tour easily gets five stars and my highest praises. I will definitely suggest to others.
It was a very efficient way to see as much as possible without much planning. Since the tour packed so many sights we could use the other days to focus on shopping and travel.
Fantastic tour with really knowledgeable local guide. We saw many things we would have missed if we had been on our own. Our party ranged in age from 10 to 70 and we all enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.
All very efficient. Ear pieces meant you could hear exactly what the guide was saying. Pretty much saw all key sights with guide avoiding crowded areas and showing best views etc.
