Pantheon

Of all Rome's ancient great buildings, only the Pantheon remains intact. It was origninally built by Marcus Agrippa as a temple to all the gods of Ancient Rome. Where it stands was not chosen by chance, but is a legendary place in the city's history. According to Roman legend, it is the place where the founder of Rome, Romulus, at his death was seized by an eagle and taken off into the skies with the Gods. The Pantheon contains the tombs of Rafael and of several Italian Kings. The dome gets thinner as it approaches the oculus, the hole in the top of the dome used as a light source for the interior. Rain can occasionally fall through it, but the floor is slanted and drains cleverly, removing the water if it manages to hit the floor.

St Peter's Dome

St Peter's Basilica in itself is truly impressive as it is the largest church in the world. St Peter's Dome is also the tallest dome in the world, built according to Michelangelo's drawings. The Dome is both the symbol of St Peters and of Rome. It can be seen at the distance from large parts of the city, perfectly in perspective, framed by the tops of trees, often wrapped in a thin mist, yet its always there. The Romans affectionately refer to the Dome as the "Cuppolone". To visit the Dome, take the elevator to the bottom of the dome where a small, long and mostly spiral staircase brings you to the top of the dome. From there you have a magnificent view of Rome and of the Saint Peter's square in particular.
