My husband & I were here in mid March while traveling with our tour group with Gate 1 Travel. The Arch sits outside and close to the Colosseum. At the time we were there the Arch was covered and under restoration so, therefore, unable to see its beauty and take the fantastic photos that I could have taken of this... More

When we were walking around the gigantic structure of Colosseum, here in Rome, we suddenly found ourselves in front of the marvelous Constantine Triumphal Arch. It is located on Piazza del Colosseo, to the left side of the Colosseum, if we're looking from the south. That is in fact one rather vast, paved in cobblestones, encircled surface that contains beside... More

I had a great tour guide give the story of this huge arch which sits outside of the Colosseum. The area is fenced off so it is hard to get a closer look at the detail. There is also restoration work going on for over half of the structure. Due to this it was hard to get a full picture... More

This is the arch that sits to the right of the colosseum. It was built to celebrate Emperor Constantine's victory from a civil war. I was here in March 2014 and it was half covered for restoration and there was a gate around it all along the bottom, so the only photos I could get were by poking my camera... More

Another masterpiece of Roman culture, also of inestimable historical value. The Arch of Constantine is located close to the Colosseum, this impressive architectural work has spanned two millennia and nowadays it is still perfectly preserved. This arc during the Roman period it was used to celebrate the Roman victories in war, in fact the legions with their commanders marched through... More

Seems like the the Arch of Constantine is always under restoration so was in my time. The Monument is quite tall as it stands beside the Colosseum.This triumphal arch dates back to the early 4th century to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius.

The detail in this Arch is gorgeous - I just wish it hadn't been under construction! We could only view half of it, but what we could see was beautiful.

Located very close to the Colosseum, this triumphal arch dates back to the early 4th century. Of all the Forum arches, I found this to be less impressive, but still, a proud relic of over 1700 years.

This was worth building in 315 AD to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius, on the way between the Coliseum and the Roman Forum. The battle marked the beginning of Constantine's conversion to Christianity. Later, churches were built for commemoration.

Great views of the arch from the coliseum, it's partially covered for restoration and fenced so you can't go too close, photo op but with so much history around it didn't stand out
