When I visited Rome, the Arch of Constantine was under restoration; however, it didn't stop us from taking photos of it. It was erected in 315 AD by the Roman senate to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius in the Battle of Milvian Bridge. It's one of a few triumphal arches left in the city. It has 3 archways and is... More

Start your Colosseum tour with a selfie here. You must buy the selfie-stick to capture the magnitude of this place. This arch is further testimony to the efficiency of the Romans. To do such a thing nowadays would take longer than any ruler remains in power!

But,getting constantly pestered by Africans selling selfie sticks,and the most unconvincing looking gladiators you have ever seen makes you want to leave quick.

Its a great piece of architecture and history, but in all truth there is not much to see, and is the colosseum was not directly next to it, I probably would not go out of my way to see it. Don't get me wrong, its a great piece of history, but its completely fenced in, and the best views of... More

Despite being side by side to the Coliseum, what could have overshadowed the Arc, this "piece of history" has its own charm and attracts as much attention as its neighbor! Don't miss the sight of this structure at nightm actually, the whole site!

Close to the Coloseum and thus unavidable if you are there or in the Forum. Is well worth looking at and like much Roman architecture is impressive.

The Arch of Constantine is a triumphal arch in Rome, situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the latest of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, and the only one... More

Amazing that this was built so long ago, doubt whether anything built these days would be so attractive or last as long. We walked through it on our walk round the Colosseum as night was setting in, and it is such an evocative area, bringing ancient Roman history to life.

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.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
