With the Pantheon, architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot met Louis XV’s wish to glorify the monarchy in the form of a church dedicated to Saint Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris. The edifice was deconsecrated during the Revolution in 1791 and...more

We wouldn't have visited this site had it not been included in our Paris Museum Pass but are glad we went in. It is secular monument to the greatest of post-Revolution citizens of France. It gave me a new and deeper appreciation for the deep...More
We visited in October and there were no lines to wait in. The Pantaneon is in the Sorbonne, so our teens got to see the students sitting in the common area studying and talking. The Pantheon itself is a good visit. A history of France...More
We decided to visit the Pantheon today and were disappointed to discover that Foucault’s Pendulum was out for repair. There was no reduction in the admission price of 9€ each for this missed exhibit.
We had visited the Pantheon about thirteen years ago and we...More
On a recent trip to Paris, my husband and I were making our way back to our hotel in the 6th arrondissement when we came upon Paris's Pantheon.
I've visited Paris twice prior and never visited the Pantheon.
It is expansive and exquisite like so...More
I was blown away by the architecture and art featured throughout the Pantheon. For me, it was breathtaking. The crypts are free to explore and there are e-guides available in a couple different languages, perfect for those who may not be fluent in French. I...More
Hard to give this less than 5 stars. A stunning interior that alone would be worth the visit. The fact 'here lies interred' Voltaire, Dumas, Hugo, Braille, Curie and many more French heroes, scientists, authors and philosophers really is staggering. Napoleon is elsewhere in Les...More
I am not one to give out four and five star ratings. Good is good, V good is V Good and Five stars must have really blown me away.
This IS a great museum and an important part of Paris' history but not top five...More
Imposing building from the outside and better from the inside, but that's about it. The crypt just wasn't very interesting. A fair number of famous people are interred there, but the sarcophagi are plain, all look pretty much the same, are sitting 4 or so...More
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.

As other reviewers have answered, I do not know of any English speaking tours - but there certainly could be. The self-audio tours seemed to be fine. Many of the crypts, etc. had a touch screen video console that all had english versions. We found that to be sufficient or even better than the accent -laden spoken word. Reading and looking at detail were awe inspiring as it was, If you go, there is no way not to enjoy it,
I agree with the above answers--I don't recall any charge. Be sure to see the crypts and be sure to go straight down the street as you exit to the Amorino's Gelato shop--it is on the right side of the street. Best Gelato in... More
