Pantheon Rome


I stumbled upon the Pantheon in Rome located at the Piazza della Rotonda whilst sightseeing along the Trevi Fountain.  The Pantheon was erected as a Roman temple and soon after it was sanctified as a catholic church.   This is a free entry admission with opening hours between 8:30 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Saturday.  Don’t miss out!!

Before I entered the Pantheon, I experienced the atmosphere of the Piazza della Rotonda, as it is filled with liveliness of people whilst sitting in the cafes, bars and restaurants.  I also sat for a while by the steps of the fountain right opposite the Pantheon where I met other tourists.  I also walked around the Pantheon’s exterior historic building and I could truly feel the history of this place.  It’s definitely one of my favourite places in Rome.

Some of the Pantheon features are:


The Dome, which is the broadest stonework dome in Europe, is as high as it is broad.   The oculus is a hole or a circular window at the dome’s centre.  This window provides air, light and structural support.
