This is located just steps from the Coliseum. They were doing restoration on my visit but I saw enough to know it is gorgeous.

We came to Rome in February and scaffolding was around the Arch being restored, it was so nice to see this Arch now, very impressive, and detailed mouldings. We visited the Arch at night, it looked very beautiful so close to the colosseum.

Wonderful example of beautiful architecture and reuse of ancient reliefs. It's also much bigger than the Arch of Titus further up the hill.

When going to and returning from campaigns Roman soldiers would walk through this arch. It has so much history and is very well preserved. It is extremely close to the colosseum. Its very beautiful.

Located on the flat open area between the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, the Arch of Constantine could be easily overlooked especially because of the aggressive vendors and guides trying to "sell" you. But pay attention to this arch erected to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius at the Milvian Bridge in 315AD. The quality of the bas reliefs is excellent.

The Arch is located in the site of the Roman ruins (Foro and Colisseum). The visit to the ruins will take you there as well.

Obviously over shadowed by the Colosseum which is right next door. However, if you stop for a few minutes and take a closer look there are really some fascinating carvings on this arch. It's quite interesting that just as most of the forum building have been disassembled into stone and carted away to makeup other buildings in Rome, so to... More

You won't miss it if you're visiting Colosseum, as the Arc is just next to it. And the plus is that you don't have to stand in line or pay to see it. :-) Being built in A.D. 312 by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory at the Battle of Milvian Bridge, it's one of the oldest structures...

Make sure you get some books or watch some documentaries on it before hand. It is a lot fascinating once you actually know what you're looking at. Totally worth the visit for any history buff!
