Arco di Costantino is of course nice, but I don't think that it is something special, especially since it is in Roma. Maybe if it was situated in another city it could have been one of its main attractions, but in Roma this is not the case. Naturally you will pass by and since there is no entrance you will... More

It was under going renovations when we were there but a lot of it could be seen behind the scaffolds. Very large and ornate and you can get a good view of it from in side the Colosseum or when you go out and start the walk up to the Roman Forum. It is a triumphal arch and it celebrates... More

Rome has a number of these beautifully adorned arches throughout the area. The Arch of Constantine is an especially impressive one. You can walk right by and see it next to the Colosseum, no need for tickets or fees or anything. The area will most likely be crowded with tourists going to the Colosseum, but make sure you take a...

Probably would have missed the significance of this arch had it not been for our guide. However, as with virtually everything else in Rome, it was undergoing some renovation.

Beautiful but can't see the whole sight since it's gated up and still under renovations. From what we saw it was beautiful.

Many tourists tend to overlook this fantastic arch as they are fixated on the Colosseum, which stands right nearby. Such oversight is a huge mistake. The Arch is one of the finest pieces of history and art in all of Rome. Take time to study it carefully. A bit difficult with some still shrouded with renovation scaffolding, but well worth... More

One of the best monuments in Rome. Such a shame, that Italians can't end renovation before tourist season. In addition monument is fenced, so you can't truly appreciate it.

During renovation at the time of our visit but still impressive. It's a shame that there is not much space to sit and admire the Arch for a while.

Traveled here after leaving the Colosseum. This attraction was undergoing some renovations so you really couldn't see all the great sculpting that went into it but from what I did see it was wonderful
