This is a triumphant arch built by the Romans between 180 and 230. It is in pretty poor condition, but interesting to see anyway. You only need about 10 minutes for a visit.

Our hotel was only a few blocks from this ancient landmark. During the day, we were able to experience it up close and appreciate the age and artistic beauty of the arch. At night, it is illuminated and makes for some great pictures. If you're sightseeing in Reims, you are only a few minutes from here. It's worth the quick... More

Worth having a wander up to the Roman gate, which is beautifully lit in the evening. Stunning example of Roman architecture outside of Italy.

After dinner, I walked by the Mars Gate, all that remains of a Roman gateway into the city. It is small and sits in the green space by the Place de la Republique. A lovely sight at night.

The place is an small construction near to Boulingrin Market and Museum of Rendition. It is interesting because of its age: the gate was one of the four entrance gates to Reims in the old ages. Visitors can have some information by reading an information board just next to the gate (in French and English). Unfortunately, it is possible to... More

It was great to see that this ancient city gate is still standing. Look up as you walk through to see detailed carvings.

This widest remaining Roman Arch in the world, from 3 AD, is well worth the short visit needed to come and gaze at this historic monument. Beautiful.

This arch is truly amazing by the mere fact that it still exists from Roman days. It is very worn in many areas, but details in the arches are still visible.

One of the sightseeing points in the Reims walking trail are the roman ruins known as Mars Gate. It is a substantial piece of roman architecture and is remarkably well preserved. You can't fail to find the Mars Gate if you have been to the large covered market as the Gate is behind the market and close to the tram... More

Really interesting spot. Reims was heavily bombed in the war and the memorial nearby is quite a spot. The gate you can see the damage.
