The Pantheon. Romes best preserved ancient building, and possibly designed by Emperor Hadrian in AD 118. It is the Roman "temple of all the gods", and later became an ancient burial place for italian monarchs.

The true beauty of the perfectly harmonious dome (due the equally-proportioned radius and height of the cylinder), can only be properly appreciated from inside, and from here you cannot help but stand and stare in amazement.

The massive pedimented portico pertrudes out into Piazza della Rotonda, which is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat, with the many adjacent bakeries, groceries and restaurants (anda McD's unfortunately!!).

Address: Piazza della Rotonda
Directions: A short walk from Piazza Venezia and Rome's Ancient Centre.
Walking is the best way, as there are no roads, and definitely no MTR stops in this part of the city......
