5 historical facts about the Pantheon

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.

Historical use

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.

Architecture of the dome

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.

Interior

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!

Exterior

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 oculus

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!

What People Are Saying About Pantheon

One of the very best ways to see Roma. Loved it

Roberto was a great guide and the trip was fun and covered a lot of ground but didn't seem rushed. It was the best pace to see Rome without getting too tired from walking. I highly recommend this trip for people travelling to Rome who wish to see a number of things in a short space of time.

One hour too long, but my kids really enjoyed it.

This was a three hour two, and I think it would have been fine to fit into a two-hour format. Our guide was very knowledgable and great with the kids - a former art history major, who knew four languages. The treasure hunt format was a great way to get our kids really engaged with their surroundings; they spent the next few days looking at walls and fountains for more animals and hidden symbols.

We enjoyed the lunch and the restaurant atmosphere and staff were good

We enjoyed the activity and I would not hesitate to book again the next time I shall be in Rome.

Best way to explore the Ancient Rome ... highly recommended

At first I was doubtful but the tour guide was extremely good , made the trip interesting and answered all our questions ... best way to explore Rome... one thing a would recommend is to have a midpoint on the tour to go to bathroom ... that would be nice !

A great way to see the must-sees of Rome!

We had a great time with Segway of Rome! Our guide, Alessandro, was kind, fun, and knowledgable. He was very safety oriented and took time to make my mom, who had never used a Segway, comfortable before leaving. He shared lots of history and we hit all the "typical" Roman sights, and then some we didn't even know about. This is a great way to see everything in Rome in a short period of time. We only have two days in this city but we didn't miss a beat because of the Segway tour!
