The Pantheon from Greek [temple] of all the gods" is a former Roman temple, now a church, in Rome, Italy, on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (27 BC – 14 AD). It was completed by the emperor Hadrian and probably dedicated about 126 AD. The building is circular with a portico of large granite Corinthian columns (eight in the first rank and two groups of four behind) under a pediment. A rectangular vestibule links the porch to the rotunda, which is under a coffered concrete dome, with a central opening (oculus) to the sky. Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. The height to the oculus and the diameter of the interior circle are the same, 142 feet (43 m). It is one of the best-preserved of all Ancient Roman buildings, in large part because it has been in continuous use throughout its history, and since the 7th century, the Pantheon has been used as a church. The Pantheon's large circular domed cella, with a conventional temple portico front, was unique in Roman architecture. Nevertheless, it became a standard exemplar when classical styles were revived, and has been copied many times by later architects. 🏛🏛🏛🏛🏛🏛🏛🏛🏛#architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelover #romanarchitecture #rome #roma #italy #visitrome #pantheon #pantheonrome #dome #oculus #travel #stereophotography #stereopic #stereopicture #stereogram #stereographic #stereograph #3dphoto #3dpicture #cofferedceiling #cofferedconcretedome #romacity #classical

В прошлый раз в Италии мы были с экскурсионным туром. Как так получилось — уже, признаться, не помню. То ли за визу побоялись, то ли сэкономить решили — а может быть, оба варианта сразу. Так или иначе, в ту поездку нам понравилось абсолютно все — кроме самого тура. Тогда мы, собственно, и зареклись брать туры окончательно и бесповоротно. Представьте себе ситуацию: у вас переезд из Рима во Флоренцию, и оттуда — на побережье. Все в один день. Соответственно, встали вы часов в 5, а трястись после подъема в 5 утра в автобусе несколько часов — отдельная категория пыток. Не удивительно, что во Флоренцию группа прибывает в довольно потрепанном состоянии. И тут уже квест для гида: как же эту самую группу взбодрить? Может быть, предложить им выпить кофе? Нет, точно нет. А вот дружненько поорать — вполне, в общем-то, нормальный вариант. Вот и ходили 30 с лишним человек с средним возрастом на группу лет 35 по Флоренции, дружно скандируя «Мы бодры, веселы». Надо ли говорить, какого размера были у нас глаза в этот момент, и насколько глубоко под землю нам хотелось провалиться?;) Поэтому эту поездку мы полностью готовили самостоятельно. Сначала самостоятельно ломали городу над выбором городов. Потом — самостоятельно составляли маршрут со всеми переездами и выкупали билеты. Потом — штурмовали всякие букинги, эирбнб и агоды на предмет поиска жилья. Сравнивали варианты, думали, думали и ещё раз думали. Потом — собирали тысячу и одну бумажку на визу и проверяли телефон на предмет сообщения от визового центра чаще, чем сдающие ЕГЭ проверяют портал госулуг. Самостоятельно торчали на сайте местной жд компании, рассчитывая стоимость переездов — и не менее самостоятельно просчитались, что тоже ожидаемо:) Что хочу сказать? Получилось в разы лучше тура! Интереснее, насыщеннее, и главное — на 100% то, что мы хотели. Да и к навыку планирования, знаете ли, +150 очков:) #vsco #vscotravel #traveladdict #adventuretime #gooutside #travelholic #italy #rome #littlethings #wonderful_places #architecture_view #architecture_lovers #sightseeing #pantheon #italian_places

Corinthian pillar hugging at the Pantheon. Raphael, the famous Renaissance painter, is buried inside, with Maria Bibbiena, his fiancée, right next to him. While that might seem sweet, it’s also tragic. Raphael became engaged to Maria, the niece of a powerful cardinal, in 1514. He put off the marriage for six years—and, in the meantime, was involved in a passionate love affair with the daughter of a local baker—until it was too late for Maria, who died. Raphael died not long after, at the age of just 37 years old. #pantheon #raphael #pillars #hugging #painting

Pantheon, Rome, Italy
Day 45- Visiting the Colosseum!!!! (Day late) We woke up,got ready and headed to to breakfast in our hotel...it was very yummy!!! We then walked to the Colosseum,queued for about an hour and half in totally but it was totally worth the wait.My Dad really like gladiators and was taking lots off information in so that helped my mum and I 🙈 While we was walking round there was the biggest thunderstorm...there was lighting,thunder and all sorts 😂 After that we went and found a little cafe to have some lunch.We then went for a walk round The Roman forum which was massive and pretty confusing and without realising we had we walked up palatine hill and enjoyed the views 🙈 From there we walked to Pantheon but didn’t go in as there was a mass and a really long queue!!!! We walked on till we got to Piazza Navona where there was another square with a fountain and lots of places to eat around it.We had dinner here at a lovely place 🙈 After that wee just headed back to our room and packed up ready for our next adventure....!!!!!!! . . . . . . #Colosseum #italy #rome #travel #travelbloger #Romanforum #romans #palatinehill #Pantheon #PiazzaNavona #adventure #traveling
