We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

pantheon

The Pantheon is the only ancient monument, originally built in 27 BC, preserving its original religious function. It's a temple in honor of the Olympic gods. The word pantheon is Greek for "Of all the gods." Today's building was reconstructed in AD 114, following destruction by a fire. Pope Boniface VIII received the building as a gift from the emperor of Byzantium and made it into a Christian church and dedicated it to the Madonna and the martyrs.



The Pantheon interior is very interesting, with an opening at the dome's top which allows a ray of sun to sweep around the floor during daylight hours. There are no other sources of light. It's also the resting place of the famous artist Raphael. Piazza della Rotonda, and its fountain, which face the Pantheon, is surrounded by out door restaurants and cafes. It's a fashionable gathering place for locals and tourists alike, especially during warm evenings when the nearby buildings are bathed in light.
