Overview

Explore Rome’s colorful religious history on 1.5-hour, guided tour of the Pantheon and the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. See ancient tombs, artwork, and landmarks as your guide uses multimedia tools and reconstructions to bring the past to vivid life.
  • 1.5-hour Pantheon and Basilica tour
  • Learn about ancient gods and religion
  • See landmark artwork and architecture
  • Led by a local guide
Make your way to the Piazza della Minerva, where this tour begins, close to central attractions and public transport. Meet a local guide, and enter the Pantheon, a Roman temple that is among the best preserved of the city’s ancient Roman buildings. Find out how the Pantheon was dedicated to the worship of every god, and what’s known of the Pantheon’s history.

Step beneath the graceful dome, still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world, and look up through the open-air oculus. See the tombs of the painter Raphael, King Victor Emmanuel II, and Queen Margherita, and hear stories about the Pantheon in ancient life.

Continue to the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, a Gothic church built on the site of three pagan temples. Inside the church, you’ll find a statue by Michelangelo and sumptuous artwork: see a pair of 15th-century frescoes, an altarpiece attributed to Fra Angelico, and an altar that covers the headless body of St. Catherine of Siena.

A wonderful young lady showed us around the Pantheon and Santa Maria Sopra Minerva. It would have been better if a headphone system was provided.

The Pantheon and Santa Maria Sopra Minerva tour was definitely a worthwhile experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared lots of insightful information about both sites that we definitely would not have known had we toured on our own. Note that the meeting place is on the side of the Pantheon near Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, not at the front of the Pantheon.
