Full description
Make your way to the Pantheon to explore the best-preserved monument of Ancient Rome on an audio guide tour of the former pagan temple. Learn the history of the building and how it later came to be used as a church and a mausoleum.

Dedicated to all the gods of pagan Rome, the temple was built by the emperor Hadrian on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus after it burnt to the ground in 80 A.D. Classified as a temple, the original use of the Pantheon and how people worshipped there is unknown as the structure is so different from other traditional Roman temples, such as the Roman Forum.

Unravel the mysteries of the structure independently with the help of your audio guide, and admire its extraordinary features, such as the dome with its oculus that both lets in sunlight and acts as a cooling and ventilation method.
