Enter Hadrian

Pantheon Rome

Tomorrow is an important anniversary for two different Roman emperors. Hadrian was born on 24 Jan 76CE. He was a Good Guy (unlike some emperors) and was responsible for having some of Rome’s great tourist attractions built – including the Pantheon above and Castel Sant’Angelo below, which was actually built to be his family mausoleum.
