Pantheon Temple, Rome (Italy)

The Pantheon Temple in Rome is famous for its magnificent architecture. The temple was commissioned by Marcus Agrippa and was completed by Hadrian. It was earlier a temple which later got converted into a church. Pantheon Temple is one of the most preserved architectures in Rome.

History of Pantheon Temple

Pantheon is an ancient Roman temple, now turned the church, in the city of Rome, Italy. Agrippa, the right hand to Emperor Augustus, built the first temple around 27 BC. However, it burnt down in 80 AD and then was rebuilt in 120 AD. The Romans used it as a temple until 609 AD, when Pope Boniface IV consecrated it as a church. Since then, it has been a place of worship for Catholics in Rome.

Despite being nearly 2,000 years old, the temple is still a breathtaking site. In fact, it is one of the best-preserved ancient Roman monuments, having survived several raids and wars. The original design and decorations are still intact, with their beauty and elegance, serving as a reminder of ancient Roman architectural superiority.

The Dome

The temple’s dome is the most breathtaking feature of this historic monument. The dome, which has a diameter of 43.4 meters, is the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. At the center of the dome, there is a massive Oculus (8.7 meters in diameter), which is famously referred to as the eye of Pantheon. The Oculus brings in the sun by the day, while creating a breathtaking view of the sky during the night.

The dome is one of the greatest architectural achievements of ancient Romans. Its design has influenced the construction of other buildings, including the US Capitol, the St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Renaissance Cathedral. This makes it one of the most influential architectural structures in the world.

The Portico

The original temple was built with steps leading up to its entrance. However, due to several modifications over the years, the steps now lead down to the portico. Here, you will find 16 large Corinthian columns surrounding the portico, making it another breathtaking structure of the temple. Each of the columns stands at 39 ft tall and weighs 60 tons. They are from Egypt, and their transportation to Rome involved a huge amount of slave labor.

The Pantheon Interior

The temple’s interior is another great attraction you should check out. Its beauty and elegance is mostly due to the effect of the dome. During the day, the light from the sun enters the interior through the Oculus of the dome, creating an overwhelming sight. The interior also features several beautiful decorations, which help to add to the beauty and elegance of the temple.

The Tombs

The Pantheon features tombs, which are the burial place of several important figures. Notable among them are Italian royals, including Umberto I and his wife, and Victor Emmanuel II. Other figures in the tomb include painters and architects such as Raphael (a famous Renaissance painter), Flaminio Vacca (architect), and others. These tombs are a walk down the memory lanes of important figures that helped to shape the future of Italy.

Art

The temple is home to a number of historic artworks. At the main altar, you will find the iconic 7th century painting of Madonna and Child. Other artworks you can find in the temple include the semi dome of the apse as well as several second century paintings and decorations.

    • Trip to Italy

      We contacted Duniya Safari for a customized Italy trip covering 3 cities - Rome, Florence and Venice and they really exceeded our expectations! Everything about the trip was so well-organized and coordinated. Right from the airport to hotel transfers, hotel bookings, inter-city transfers and sight-seeing vouchers- everything went very smoothly. The high-light of the trip was a day trip to the Tuscany region and Piza with a wine-tasting lunch at a family-run vineyard. A special thanks to Mayuri Ganguly from Duniya Safari for making this trip so memorable for my family and me!

      I went on a honeymoon to Switzerland and Italy for 11 days. I posted my requirement on travel traingle and I got the good quote from holiday Aces. The team is very helpful, they will help you with everything like what to do, how to go somewhere. They will be connected to you via WhatsApp and phone. The hotels were amazing, the only problem I had was one of the hotel was little inside from the main road and we had to walk with our luggage. Overall I had a great time. I liked the team the way they helped me. I will certainly go ahead with holiday Aces for my future trips. Titlis and Jungfrau was amazing in Switzerland and the gandola ride in Venice was exciting. Also going inside the leaning tower of Pisa was amazing, the stairs were slanted, I felt like someone is pushing me towards the other side.

      Trip was nothing short of dream come true. Really had great fun and was able to manage everything on the trip because of the Itenary shared. One suggestion was please give help to solo traveller going abroad first time to keep cash in currency of the place they are travelling because its must required. Another important thing would be to help people who are pure vegetarians to find indian restaurants which will really help them to have proper food because in italy its pure non vegetarian food. I would suggest to take food packets from india and also research the place of travel before going so that you already have a brief knowledge of the locations of travel. In locals in italy during night hours request to travel via taxi would be a suggestion by me to avoid any problems.

      Firstly thanks to Mr PRASHANT and SHUBHAM from hubholiday . It was our honeymoon Trip ,and we had an unforgettable trip to Italy. Everything was taken care of by Shubham And Prashant from HubHoliday. Shubham was extremely helpful and managed the entire bookings/Itinerary pretty well. Hotel Property Were really Great and at good Location . It was an unforgettable memory of my life . We have booked the jet airways flights , but before our travel jet airways flights cancelled , Mr Prashant called the airlines and booked ethihad flights with no extra charge . A special note to Hub Holiday team - Prashant and Shubham who were 24*7 available on phone and never left a stone unturned to address my query or provide guidance as and when I required. Shubham worked really hard on understanding our requirements and went through several iterations to give us the best possible plan. Truly speaking, we couldn't have created one like this ourselves. We were booked at centrally located 3/4 star hotels and had all the transfers included. We wanted to keep our schedule relatively relaxed, so were given bookings on cruises, day passes which included free public transportation & entry to some of the spots, hop on-hop off city tours which gave us a lot of flexibility and still let us see the best that the city had to offer. We we're quite confused in the beginning as to how the itinerary will be and what are the best places to visit in Europe .Shubham has guided us to go to italy as italy was within our budget . Audi cars were provided for pick up and drops!!A big Thanks to Shubham , Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip.I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.
