The Arch is located in the site of the Roman ruins (Foro and Colisseum). The visit to the ruins will take you there as well.

Obviously over shadowed by the Colosseum which is right next door. However, if you stop for a few minutes and take a closer look there are really some fascinating carvings on this arch. It's quite interesting that just as most of the forum building have been disassembled into stone and carted away to makeup other buildings in Rome, so to... More

You won't miss it if you're visiting Colosseum, as the Arc is just next to it. And the plus is that you don't have to stand in line or pay to see it. :-) Being built in A.D. 312 by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory at the Battle of Milvian Bridge, it's one of the oldest structures...

Make sure you get some books or watch some documentaries on it before hand. It is a lot fascinating once you actually know what you're looking at. Totally worth the visit for any history buff!

Just after finishing the colliseum's photograps dont put the camera away as you get your chance to click a selfie in the arch. Is not a very remarkable architecture but it is a plus to the experience.

Unfortunately, this was almost entirely covered in scaffolding for restoration when we were there, but we were still able to marvel at the incredible details and size of the overall arch. Very impressive.

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
