It was nice to take a step back from the Colosseum and get a view of it through the Arch of Constantine. Great place to take photos.

The Arc of Constantine, built in 312 AD, was the route taken by emperors when they entered the city after winning a battle. You can't walk underneath it as the emperors could, but it's still great to see...and free! It's also right between the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, so it's easy to see on your way between the two.... More

The arch of Constantine is a triumphal arch of Ancient Rome erected two centuries ago. It's located between the Coliseum and Palatine Hill. Nice to look at whilst in the queue for the Colosseum. Beware all the sellers trying to sell selfie sticks - a bit of a nightmare!

Just outside the Coliseum is the Arch of Constantine. It is just an arch that is 25 meters high built to mark the victory of Constantine over Maxentius at Pons Milvius.

A triumphal arch of Ancient Rome that was erected almost 2,000 years ago. It's located between the Coliseum and Palatine Hill. Easy to reach. Notice the details in the monument recognizing the victory of Constantine.

Commissioned by the Roman Senate for the Emperor Constantine, honoring his victory over Maxentius in 312. It's in between the Forum and Colosseum so no fee to get at it, it's stunning, recently restored and a great photo op

Right next to the Colosseum. This massive structure is just breathtaking because it bears a lot of historical significance in Rome as well as the history of Christianity. There may be a few arches in Rome/Italy but there is only one Arch of Constantine and it is free of charge!!

Monument to Constantine and his victory over Maxentius in 312, this also marks a turning point in the history of Christianity. Even if such things are not interesting or significant to you, it's still an impressive piece of art and architecture, and right by the Colosseum - so worth taking a look!

While this arch has great history and is great to look at being right next to the coliseum really makes it seem not as grand. Definitely worth visiting for a little while when you go to the coliseum.
