The entrance is through huge bronze doors, and the interior is a circular room with Catholic alters and artifacts. The dome has a span of 43.2 m (142 feet).
One of the fascinating architectural aspects of it is the "oculus", a circular hole in the ceiling which allows in rain and sunlight.
It is open from 8:30am to 7:30pm. Admission is free.
Right outside the Pantheon is the Piazza della Rotonda, a lively square filled with cafes, bars, and restaurants. It is especially lively in the summer, when the Pantheon is lit from below and stands as an enormous reminder of the grandeur of ancient Rome.

Walking around inside you can feel disoriented by the strange dimensions and acoustic effects. The dome is nearly perfect in its spherical shape making it seem rather tall and airy. Coupled with the wide open hole on top it feels kind of outdoorsy inside the building.
