Pantheon entry to remain free -Bonisoli

Plan to make visitors pay dropped says culture minister

(ANSA) - Rome, December 6 - Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli said Thursday that a plan by the previous centre-left government to make visitors to the Pantheon in Rome pay an entry ticket have been ditched. The Pantheon, originally a temple to all the Roman gods, is one of Rome's most iconic monuments.
    A church today, it contains the tomb of Renaissance painter Raphael.
    "The Pantheon will remain free," Bonisoli said.
    "On the contrary to what my predecessor decided in 2017, no entry ticket will be introduced.
    "A measure of this kind would have limited the tradition free access to the capital's churches of worship and created a barrier between the monument and the square it is in".
