Hotel Pantheon

Description

The Pantheon is one of the most complete Roman buildings in existence. Originally built by Agrippa as a square temple in 25 BC it was damaged by fire and rebuilt as a circular temple with its famous dome by Hadrian in 125 AD. The dome is 146 feet in diameter and was the largest in the world until the dome of Florence cathedral was built in the 15th century. Inside the diameter of the floor area is the same as the distance from the floor to the oculus (the gap at the top of the dome which is the only source of light and sometimes rain). Its name means “To All Gods” and it was preserved from pillaging by being christianised, although the external marble was removed and the bronze roof of the portico was melted down to make cannons for Castel Sant’Angelo and the baldecchino in St Peter’s. Several painters, including Raphael, and two Italian kings are buried here. It has no dedicated website, although information is available on other sites. Entrance is free. It is open from 8.30am to 7.30pm Monday to Saturday, 9am to 6pm on Sundays, 9am to 1pm on public holidays. Closed Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and 1 May. Buses and trams stop on Largo Argentino, a couple of minutes walk away, and Spagna underground station is 15 minutes walk away.

very good

The Pantheon was one of the things in Rome that was high on my to-do list although I’m not too sure why. I knew that it had something to do with the Gods and for me that was enough to want to see it. == Getting there == The main problem with the Pantheon is getting there. It is not near any metro stop and the closest is Barberini although this is still a 10-15 minute walk away. We headed to the Pantheon after visiting the Trevi Fountain and ...

What is Rome still a beautiful city! For seven days I was in Rome. The whole town is really just as a big museum. While walking in the center of Rome you just see so much. While walking through the streets you suddenly see the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Pantheon. Accessibility The Pantheon is located in the center of Rome. A walk of about five minutes you're at the Trevi Fountain and with ten minutes you can also look at the Spanish ...
