When visiting the Colosseo, see this too!

Ok, you're at the Colosseo and you have the tickets to the Roman Forum. Walk under the Constantino arch and see how many civilizations layers Rome has!

The Arch of Constantine is located just to the side of the Colosseum. It really resembles a miniature of the Arc di Triomph located in Paris. If you are near the Roman Forum and Colosseum area in Rome, take a short walk and check it out.

If you are visiting Colosseum you are definitely going to see this structure staying next to it. Worth spending a few minutes admiring this piece of history. Take a few pictures and move to your next destination.

This is especially lovely in the evening when few visitors are around. The detailed workings on the arch attract the eye. Don't miss it if you are visiting any of the other sites nearby.

Try not to ignore here if visiting the Colosseum and surrounding attractions. It's definitely an opportunity to get a shot in front of . Again, it's really one of those attractions where you only need to spend a few minutes at.

Take time to look at this at the colosseum. Read something on it. Great history. Notice the Romanians on the statues and their different clothing.

Another incredibly old piece of history, this time an arch celebrating a victory of Constantine in the fourth century AD. Cobbled together from existing sculpture and marble, the arch towers above the northern end of San Gregorio. Walking from the Colosseum to the Forum, you just can't miss it!

The Arch of Constantine is adjacent to three major attractions in Rome; the Colosseum, The Forum, and the Palatine Hill. It was built in around 300 AD to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius. This is where my history lesson stops. You can Google and successfully get more detailed information. The reliefs on the arch are stunning for their clarity and... More

The Arch of Constantine is one of three triumphal arches nearby... two in the Roman Forum up the hill (definitely worth it). Adjacent to the Colosseum. Make sure you leave time to take plenty of pictures. There is a fee to enter the Colosseum. No fee to see the Arch.
