There is a place in Rome where art meets legend – a place where Rome has always shown its glory. The only place that has remained intact over the centuries… I’m talking about the Pantheon, of course! According to Roman legend, the monument rises at the point where Romulus, at his death, was grabbed and brought to heaven by an eagle.
My suggestion is to visit the Pantheon in the morning once it opens. Being able to enjoy this monument with only a few other people around is a unique experience that will take you on a journey through time. Have you ever wondered if it rains inside the Pantheon? Go there to discover it!
