A wonderful structure right next to the colosseum. It can be seen from another perspective from the colosseum. The arch is spectacular and you once again are amazed by the abilities of the Romans.

This is a fascinating piece of history. It's immediately next to the Colosseum. The arch is protected by a barrier, but if you go to the forum you can get really close to the Arch of Tito which is very similar

The best path between Colosseum and Palatino. When you leave Colosseum and take the path to Palatino do a stop and go at Arco di Constantino. Try figure out how that huge gate worked for the emperor at that time.

Time will pass that you did not even notice as we were totally captured of the impressive building and it's history. Overall the place is amazing. We spent our time taking pictures and enjoying the beauty of the place. Tourist won't be disappointed to visit the Romans Land.

Spent a few hours here with my boyfriend in the heat today, just walking around, taking pictures. It's all very beautiful and historical. We didn't take a tour or listen to a guide so we weren't really sure what we were looking at but we got lots of nice pictures 😆

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.
