Pantheon: When in Rome, you must see the Pantheon. It's probably one of the most fascinating buildings in the City. The Pantheon was built 27 BC by the son-in-law of Augustus an for me it truly shows the lost beauty of ancient Rome the most. Unfortunately, many other buildings including the Colosseum and buildings on the Forum Romanum were used as quarries to build churches/streets etc but this building was somehow saved. Finally, there is a beautiful square in front of it where you can sit and enjoy a coffee or some slices of Pizza. Also, Piazza Navone is very close by. Entry is free.
