The Arch is at the other end of Rimini from the Roman Bridge and is an important historical landmark. Constructed from a softer stone than the bridge, it is quite badly eroded. although the main features are still evident. Nice to sit and watch everyday life passing by - it is part of the town and quite free of touristic... More

The Arch of Augustus at Rimini was dedicated to the Emperor Augustus by the Roman Senate in 27 BC and is the oldest Roman arch which survives. The gate's principal function, aside from functioning as a city gate, was to support the lavish bronze statue of Augustus. The battlements on the upper part date to the Medieval period (10th century).... More

An Imposing Roman arch is set off in a traffic oval and serves as an entry point to the old town. Remains of the old town wall extend from the arch along side a lovely park that serves as a boundary to part of the old town and a traffic free zone for cyclists and walkers.

The arch stands at the opposite end of the Corso d'August to the Tiberius bridge and its well worth walking from one to the other. Considering the arch was dedicated in 27BC its in amazing condition.

I liked this place! It was a start of our observing of an old city of Rimini. There is a great bicycle road around this memorial.

This is an interesting monument, but I don't think rimini sells it as such. The area is run down. There are no coffee bars or anywhere to get anything to eat. Which is a shame

The arch is a short walk from the town center. If you go to see it, plan on spending a few minutes there and taking some nice photos.

Well, um, clearly a lot of history attached to it, but visually it's a bit dull. It's an arch. Nothing much around it to contextualise it. Looks like it's lost its way and landed there by accident. If you're in the square in the middle of the Old Town you'll see it, but don't make a special journey or you'll... More

A must see place in the heart of Rimini. Very good location - if you go for a walk in the historic centre you can't miss it.
