I am so sorry I didn't see your post until now.

I do agree that so many modern buildings have been built around the Pantheon and I too wish
I could have seen Rome in its prime.

Unfortunately the city (and the country) are so old and there is so much antiquity - under and
above ground - that we tend to be very blase' about it all.  Note also that at the time of Michel-
angelo, only, interest started taking hold to rediscover the treasures of Ancient Rome. 

Aside from the millennia, the "CHURCH" and its nobility had plundered Roman buildings during all that
time.  What they couldn't tear down, they used for their new places of worship - thankfully, in the
case of the Pantheon.

Unfortunately, "to the victors go the spoils......"

P.S.  If it makes you feel any better, when I am in Italy I NEVER go to visit the churches, even
though I know that is where the works of art are. 

In protest, I have always limited myself to seeking out only more "ancient glories......"

Also, see below from the beginning if this thread:
