The Pantheon is definitely a place you should visit when in Rome. Entrance is free and the building has enough to offer to the hungry tourist eye :)

There are several tombs set inside the walls of The Pantheon. I really liked Raphael's tomb (on the left side as you enter the building). The tomb of Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of the unified Italy, is also here. You can also see the tomb of his successor, Umberto I and his wife, princess Margherita.

In the piazza outside The Pantheon there is a very nice fountain topped by an Egyptian obelisk. The base of the fountain and the obelisk were built by the orders of Pope Clement XI.
