Stop At: Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome Italy
Make your way to the Pantheon to explore the best-preserved monument of Ancient Rome on a guided tour of the former pagan temple. The 1-hour itinerary will narrate the history but above all the curiosities and lesser-known facts of the Basilica of Saint Maria ad Martyres, the Pantheon.
This monument has represented the greatest expression of the glory of Rome for more than two thousand years. In 608, Pope Boniface IV had the remains of many martyrs removed from the Christian catacombs and placed in the Pantheon. Thereafter the temple was officially converted to Christianity and named Saint Maria ad Martyres. The Pantheon was an inspiration to Raphael, one of the greatest architects of the Renaissance, and he requested it be his place of eternal rest. Unravel the mysteries of the structure, admire its extraordinary features, such as the dome with its oculus that both lets in sunlight and acts as a cooling and ventilation method.
