This triumph arc, dedicated to Emperor Constantine, is a historic important monument, 17 centuries old, close to the Colosseum. Emperor Constantine embraced, as first Roman Emperor, the Christian faith, halting the persecution of the Christian Church. This move is sometimes attributed to political reasons, but from the reign of Constantine, the Christian faith got the foothold in Italy in the... More

This was another little bonus monument to see as you're walking towards the Colosseum. Thought it was nice as Constantine was my grandfather's name too. :) Took a photo of my companion, Ezio (shown in my photos) outside it as well! Very well looked after.

We did several walking tours and this was part of one of them. We traveled in early June a very pleasant time to take in these attractions by way of walking tours.

Secluded & away in a nearly neglected point, the arch of Constantine (the first Roman emperor who proclaimed Christianity as the religion of all roman empire) stands alone. Maybe for its majestic & strong symbolism, that noting should be built around. I am really proud of my name now? lol

It has a large metal fence all around that makes pictures difficult. Be careful walking on the path behind it the rocks can be tricky. I almost fell.

A monumental triumphant arch located near the Coliseum as you leave the Roman forum area. Looking at it you can see its influence upon later city architecture, such as the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Constantine is remembered for his military prowess & conversion to Christianity. ...

Constantine's arch is indeed a powerful symbol of Roman culture on the whole. It signifies the conquests of the great roman emperor. The arch shows great detail of this by the carvings. Worth examining in detail.
