Enjoy a 1-hour guided tour of the Eternal City's most beautiful ancient temple, the Pantheon. With fewer than 10 people per group, you can admire such sights as the Elephant by Bernini with personalized attention from your guide. On the side of the square that supports the elephant and its obelisk, the plinth refers to Isis and is dedicated to St Mary. The reader is reminded that it takes a robust spirit, like that of an elephant, to support reliable wisdom.
See also the Pantheon with its oculus, also known as the 'Eye of the Pantheon.' Interestingly, on the midday of every 21 April (the founding date of Rome), the sunlight strikes the metal grille above the door, filling the entranceway with light. This would have illuminated the emperor in ancient times. Visit Raphael's tomb, one of the greatest painters of the Renaissance.
Learn all about the Basilica of Neptune, built in celebration of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa's naval victories at Mylae, Naulochus, and Actium. Explore the original Roman streets, the flood marks, and the marble freezes. Along the way, you will learn lots of fun facts as you explore one of the top ten sights in Rome.
