Visitors will soon have to pay to enter the Pantheon, one of central Rome's most spectacular monuments.

The idea to introduce a fee to enter the building, one of the few ancient Roman sites that is currently free, met with controversy when it was first mooted by Culture Minister Dario Franceschini in January to help cover the monument's high running costs.

But the minister confirmed on Thursday that the plan is on track and an entrance fee of “just a few euros” would be in place by early next year.

“We just have to work out where to put the ticket office," he said.
