Full description
Enjoy a 40 minutes tour of the fascinating Roman Temple dedicated to all the Gods with a professional guide. Marvel at its miraculously preserved interiors and the impressive Dome. Discover the engineering secrets that made this monument the only one of its size and age to have survived the effects of time and gravity.  Admire the beauty of its proportions as Michelangelo did when he first saw this architectural jewel, and discover the pagan rational behind them. Walk in through the Corinthian columns brought in all the way from Egypt and step on the ancient original marble floor of the temple. Learn about it's later use as a Christian church and as a resting place for Christian martyrs, Italian royals and famous artists such as Rafaello himself.

Outstanding

We really enjoyed this tour with Samuele he was really knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, and was obviously very passionate about the culture and history of this lovely place, we were the only ones on this tour so were very lucky to have our own private tour, would definitely recommend it!

Great tour with our guide Sam who clearly loved his job!

We did the Pantheon and the squares around it. Our guide Sam was very knowledgeable and friendly giving us an in depth tour. This was an evening tour on Christmas Eve and the scene was beautiful! The Pantheon looked majestic at dusk and the surrounding squares were lined with unique little shops and kiosks, like a Christmas market. We had dinner at a little restaurant Cantina & Cucina which was great!

Super narrator.

Samuel was very interesting to listen to, he knew a lot not only about this place but about everything in Rome so he could draw parallels to other things in Rome that refer to the Church. However, there was too little time in the church to be able to see it all, but since it is free to enter, you can go in there yourself and look more.
