Even it is old, it is still amazing. A visit with a guide is better to know what are you seeing. I really recommend.

Nicely preserved arch! Location makes it very easy to admire. I also like the fact that one need not but any tickets to admire this amazing structure.

Having been to Paris and seen the Arc de Triomphe, I was eager to see the arch that it was modeled after. Very beautiful and wonderfully preserved. If you are on a tour group, it's a quick walk by, but take the time to go back and take in all the detail. Stunning!

Amazing grand arch next to Colosseum. Very impressive and marvel how still standing. Zoom in on all sculptures and Latin inscriptions. Excellent.

Right next to the Colosseum, try and see it at different times of day. We visited at Sunset on the way back to our hotel and the sun casting on it was amazing.

This is located just steps from the Coliseum. They were doing restoration on my visit but I saw enough to know it is gorgeous.

We came to Rome in February and scaffolding was around the Arch being restored, it was so nice to see this Arch now, very impressive, and detailed mouldings. We visited the Arch at night, it looked very beautiful so close to the colosseum.

Wonderful example of beautiful architecture and reuse of ancient reliefs. It's also much bigger than the Arch of Titus further up the hill.
