We run a 1h tour of the incredible pantheon starting immediately with a group of no more than 15 others. We tell you about the great Michelangelo and his depiction of Christ on the cross. The tour includes the Elephant by Bernini, the Inquisition (where infamously Galileo was put on trial), the Basilica of Neptune and the Thermal Baths. We show you the original Roman street level and the flood marks, the marble freeze and the porch where the missing bronze was turned into the canons on Castle Sant'Angelo. Last but not least: inside the Pantheon to gaze at the jaw- dropping oculus which is mathematically perfect and to see Rafaelo’s tomb. All this in a brief blast of information covering what is considered to be three of the top ten things to see in Rome. Be sure that you are wearing comfortable shoes. Pantheon is a holy place, so guests should dress appropriately — all should cover their shoulders and knees.

Stop At: Piazza della Minerva

At the centre of the piazza, backing onto the Inquisition convent, is the 1667 Elephant and Obelisk by Bernini. This obelisk was excavated in the cloister and came from the Iseum. The elephant was known as "il pulcin della Minerva", or "porcino", from the Roman people's story that - uninspired by elephants - Bernini in fact sculpted a pig.
