Pantheon FAQs

The short answer is, it depends on when you visit! It is not necessary to make a Pantheon reservation if you are planning a mid-week visit, as the Pantheon is now a church, and so entry is free on weekdays. However, during the weekend, it is necessary to make a Pantheon reservation in advance, which means you will need to book either a guided tour or an audio guide.

Due to the high volume of visitors, audio-guided Pantheon tickets and Pantheon guided tours come with an allotted time slot as standard, so if you book one of these options, your reservation is included in your tickets. It's recommended to book your audio guide or guided tour as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment on the day.

The precise date of the Pantheon in Rome's original construction is difficult to say with precision, as the current building sits on the site of an earlier temple, which was commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus around 27 BC – 14 AD.

The Pantheon's predecessor was burned down, and the current temple was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian around 126 AD. Formerly a pagan temple dedicated to all of the gods, the Pantheon was consecrated as a Christian church in the year 609.

Consequently, the building has been in continuous use ever since, which is the main reason why the Pantheon is one of the best-preserved architectural relics of the Roman Empire still standing today.

The Pantheon's extraordinary dome-shaped roof, is the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world to this day. But that’s not all that’s special about this ancient ceiling.

Considered one of the most beautiful coffered ceilings in the world, its patchwork pattern of depressed cubes surrounds a nine-meter hole - known as the oculus - directly in the dome’s center. The hole serves multiple functions, the first is that it helps to alleviate structural tension at the weakest part of the dome. It also fills the space with natural light and makes lovely moving shadow patterns on the squares.

No matter the time of year, this hole is never covered, so bear that in mind when you visit. Your perfect moment in the spotlight might be washed out quicker than you might think!

The Pantheon is really magnificent, one really has to visit, when is Rome. The only problem was that there wasn't any indication which one was the prepaid ticket line.

Of Rome's seven hills, the Palatine is the one that's right in the heart of the ancient city. It overlooks the Roman Forum on one side and the Circus Maximus on the other. Some of the finest ancient homes were located here, including the emperor's – 'Palatine' is actually where the modern word 'palace' comes from!
