Paris: Panthéon Admission Ticket and Self-Guided Tour

1. Paris: Panthéon Admission Ticket and Self-Guided Tour

Take a self-guided tour of the Panthéon, a masterpiece created by Soufflot (1713-1780) and a former church that became the burial place for famous French personalities from the French Revolution. See a major exhibition that pays tribute to Jacques-Germain Soufflot, one of the greatest French architects. Journey through his career and his monumental achievements, the most famous being the royal Church of Sainte-Geneviève, the current Panthéon. The architect achieved Louis XV's desire to glorify the monarchy in church form dedicated to Saint Geneviève. The edifice was deconsecrated during the French Revolution in 1791 and renamed the Panthéon. During the turbulent 19th century, it shifted between a religious and patriotic monument. Since Victor Hugo's death in 1885, the Panthéon has been the resting place for French writers, scientists, generals, clergymen, and politicians. The crypt houses the tombs of 70+ illustrious figures including Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile Zola, Alexandre Dumas, Pierre, and Marie Currie. From the recently restored upper floors, enjoy superb views across the city (from April to October).

The Pantheon was a stunning building full of history, art work, and the Crypt housing the remains of important French people in history. The self guided tour was excellent and I learned a lot about the history of the French people.

Relaxed tour of important French history related to Revolution. Honoring leaders from politics, science, literature and the arts who gave voice and encouragement to the revolution. Many in that group are buried here.

Foucaults pendulum is amazing! We checked it out as soon as we got there then the pantheon and the crypt. Before we left we returned to the pendulum and we’re amazed by how noticeable it was that the earth had moved.

great way to see the Pantheon. The area is beautiful and the Crypt is amazing!

Didn’t have to q with these e-tickets! Very convenient.
