“A visit to Arco di Traiano in Benevento!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My relatives took me to Benevento for a few hours to visit this old beautiful town. We mainly walked on the main strip where there's lots of shops, caffes and then at the end of the road I saw this beautiful sculpted Arco di Traiano - magnificent to see. Glad I got to visit Benevento.

“A most surprising sight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

When you look at this arch it takes you right into Roman times - you can almost hear the swords clashing. It is beautifuly looked after, and the low trees that flank it provide welcome shade on hot days and a refuge from the wind and rain in the winter. Standing in front of the arch on one side you look over the hills and can imagine what it must have been like in those times, scouring the landscape for the enemy, while on the other you look towards the Corso and Benevento proper.

“Credit to Benevento”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Very rare item, one of the very few Roman triumphal arches left in very good condition and must be preserved.
