When in Rome - Go to the Pantheon

The Pantheon is one of the most awesome buildings I have ever seen. It was built around 125 AD, and it is in really good condition compared to a lot of the other buildings we visited in Rome. I think it is being used as a Catholic church and/or a tomb. It's strange to me that people are buried inside churches, but it's not the first time I've seen that. Inside the Pantheon, we saw the grave of the painter Raphael. No he's not just a ninja turtle. He was a badass artist from back in the day. On the tour of the Pantheon, they told us that the building is still used for weddings. I wonder how long the wait list is. Regardless, I'll bet that it's expensive!
