Overview
Discover the Pantheon and the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva on a Rome walking tour. Laced with intrigue and architectural delight, the two monuments are surprisingly sidelined by many guidebooks. Hear their history from a local guide, and stumble upon Michelangelo sculptures, the tomb of Raphael, and the world’s largest unsupported dome as you explore. Historical reconstructions and multimedia props complete the experience.
What to Expect
From Piazza della Minerva in Rome, you’ll stroll with your guide to the Pantheon. The iconic temple is widely said to be one of ancient Rome’s best-preserved monuments, and you’ll hear its history as you explore inside with your guide.

Gaze up at the huge dome, which has no visible vaults or arches to support it, and learn about the architectural achievement from your guide. Tear your eyes away from the open-air oculus, which illuminates the interior, and rest them on the tombs of Rome’s bygone VIPs: The likes of Raphael and Queen Margherita were laid to rest in the Pantheon.

From the ancient temple, you’ll stroll across to the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, a Gothic masterpiece built on top of pagan temples. Sculptures by Michelangelo and Bernini, 15th-century frescoes, and a Fra Angelico altar are just a few of the highlights. Your tour ends at the basilica.

Brilliant Tour

The buildings were absolutely brilliant. Even my teenage daughter managed to put her mobile down for 90-minutes as our guide took us back through time. Very knowledgeable and an excellent afternoon.
