Entry to Pantheon to remain free

Dec 10, 2018 9:47 am

“On the contrary to what my predecessor decided in 2017, no entry ticket will be introduced”

Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli said Thursday that a plan by the previous centre-left government to make visitors to the Pantheon in Rome pay an entry ticket have been ditched. The Pantheon, originally a temple to all the Roman gods, is one of Rome’s most iconic monuments.

A church today, it contains the tomb of Renaissance painter Raphael.

“The Pantheon will remain free,” Bonisoli said: “On the contrary to what my predecessor decided in 2017, no entry ticket will be introduced”.

A measure of this kind would have limited the tradition free access to the capital’s churches of worship and created a barrier between the monument and the square it is in.
