"The Pantheon...." Panthéon Tip by Maryimelda
Panthéon, Paris: 108 reviews and 253 photos
This is another of those Paris landmarks that has been written about a thousand times before, but I was so gobsmacked by it that I felt I needed to say something. I was expecting something akin to the Pantheon in Rome, which, although equally as fascinating, is entirely different. I was especially fascinated by the clock, as I had never seen anything like it before and to someone as unscientific as me, it was something to truly ponder and wonder how on earth it worked.
I was also very interested in the tombs of so many very famous people from Victor Hugo to Louis Braille, Alexander Dumas and so many more. Watch your feet on the stairs to the crypt however as they are very narrow and spirally and there are lots of people going both ways. This is just a word of warning from an old 60 year old who is paranoid about falling down stairs.
The Pantheon was a morning well spent and I commend it to any future Paris visitors.
