Rose petals at the Pantheon on June 4th

Rose petals throwing through the oculus in Pantheon, which can be seen on our Rome In A Day Private Tour and Historic Centre Private Tour.

Tens of thousands of rose petals flutter through Pantheon oculus on 4 June.

The spectacular tradition of rose petals fluttering down through the oculus can be enjoyed on Sunday 4 June following 10.30 Mass for the feast of Pentecost.

The ancient ceremony involves tens of thousands of rose petals being dropped 43 metres into the interior of the Pantheon, symbolising the Holy Spirit’s descent to Earth.

Due to its popularity, those interested in witnessing the event should begin queuing at 08.00, and entry will cease once the crowd reaches capacity.
