Constantine Arch sits adjacent to the Colosseum. There isn't much to see other than the details on the arch itself, but if you are in Rome and visiting the sights then it would be easy to add this to your to-do list...it's free, won't take up more than a few minutes and there's 1700 years of history to admire!

It is a monument close to the colosseum , so you recoamand take a picture next to it. It is impressive for the fact that there are battle scenes with Dacia ( historians )

Constantine's arch is a magnificent sight indeed. Adjacent on to the footstep of the colosseum it's a very well preserved arch that stands tall this day, a must see in Monti!

So many things to see that after a while you can become overwhelmed. I had to take a moment to allow my mind to catch up with my eyes. So many wonderful sights to see and the Monument is just one of so many beautiful places to visit.

Maybe not the most famous city arch in the world, yet the first and most ancient to remain visible. As it was built on the forth century, it is not perfectly maintained but you can see all the details of that era. Take sometime to appreciate it, it worth a few moments to discover what it has to teach us... More

It dates back to the 300, and with its 26 meters by 21 in height it's monumental. If you think when it was built, you cannot help but wonder how they did it and how it still stands. It's so beautifully ornate, with hunting scenes and sculptures of roman emperors. Be prepared to stand in line for some time to... More

Very impressive well preserved arch, we visited here whilst at the Colosseum and Roman Forum, very nice photography piece. The entire surrounds of this area are beautiful a must see, don't just go to the Colosseum and go take time to take it all in.

This arch was built around 315 AD, and is one of the best preserved artifacts in the area and of this time. The arch was to recognize a battle of Constantine over Emperor Maxentius at the battle of the Milvian Bridge. The sculpture and the inscriptions again are well preserved and well worth a look. The arch is right next... More

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
