Midst a with tourists crowded shopping area there is this ancient, quite well preserved triumphal arch. Photographing it without being annoyed by all the people you do nòt want to infest your picture can't be done. Therefor: stand still and take some time to watch so you can bring it home the old fashioned way: by memory ;-)

This is just down from where the 3A bus goes back to Histria, Verudela and is quite impressive to walk under nearby is a bronze in a cafe of James Joyce. It must have been really impressive in its heyday.

You should see it early in the morning to take profit of the light, but a very nice Arch. There is a way to take pics of someone on a pedestal to be seen inside the arch.

Another symbol of the Roman period in this area, beautifully preserved.In the heart of the city the Arch is the meeting point for the tourist but also for the local artists which are offering their best to you during the summer season (music, art objects, jewelry, fashion items, etc.).

On our 10 minute walk from the Arena to the old town, we passed by several arched gateways which seemed to be entry points into the walled old town. Do not confuse these portals as the Gate of Sergius! This gate, a Roman triumphal arch built around 27 BC, stands alone - no wall is attached - and is quite... More

I just thought: how many millions of people passed through this Arch? I have passed the Arch too, like all these people during for more then 2000 years... what would have they said if they could have seen us from their past?

The honorary triumphal arch, originally a city gate, was erected as a symbol of the victory at Actium and was paid for by the wife of Lepidus. It stands... More
