Pantheon, once my neighbour.

I went to Rome the second time and decided to stay in an aparment a few steps away from the Pantheon. It would be nice to think that sometime in the past, for a few days in your life, you were once in the neighbourhood of the Pantheon.

Tip! If you are planning to visit Rome, check this apartment: and I suggest you visit the site at late at night as it is overcrowded during the day.

The Roman Pantheon is the most preserved and influential building of ancient Rome.
The Italian kings Vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I as well as the famous Renaissance painter Raphael and his fiancée are buried in the Pantheon.

“Marcus Agrippa son of Lucius, having been consul three times made it”.
The Roman Pantheon in its present state allows us a glimpse into the marvelous and stunning world of Roman architecture.

The architect of the Pantheon is unknown.
It is a Roman temple dedicated to all the gods of pagan Rome. As the brick stamps on the side of the building reveal it was built and dedicated between A.D 118 and 125.
The Pantheon has been in use since the time it was built.
