The detail in this arch commemorating the Emperor (and saint) Constantine's military victory is amazing. I can't believe that so much detail survived 1700 years. It is right next to the Colosseum so take 5 minutes to take a look!

It sits right beside the coliseum and doesn’t look that big when viewed from inside. When your outside and beside it, you really appreciate the level of detail and the scale of it. Remarkably well preserved compared to a lot of the old Roman architecture....More

The Arch is outside the Colosseum. You can just walk over and look at it. I highly recommend going at night. That whole area is lit up beautifully at night..
