Arch commemorates constatine's battles as well some of Marcus aurelias'. It is simply grand and has pillars and detailed engravings. Located near the entrance of the coliseum. Not a busy area so photo taking is pretty easy. Visited in May 2012 while at the coliseum.

It is an amazing Arch right in front of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. It commemorates Constantine's victory against Maxentius. It is definitely an essential sight and even if the intention is not to see it, you will as you will end up at the Colosseum.

The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It's literally right in front of the Colosseum - you can't miss it. The arch is 21 meters high, which makes it the largest Roman triumphal arch. It's amazing!

In a city full of arches remembering Roman battles, Arco di Constantino stands out and, if you follow the carvings, it really takes you back in time. I wish there were less pushy sellers around so one could just sit and admire the place uninterrupted. Some plaque informing all of us about the meaning of the carvings would be nice... More

The Arch of Constantine is actually classified as an attraction on its own? It is literally next to the Colosseum, and you will get an introduction to its background when you opt for the audioguide when inside the Colosseum. If you opted to start your visit at the Palatine Hill, then you will pass by the Arch. Personally, I think... More

Hard to miss if you are visiting the Colloseum. It's fenced off but you can still get close enough to appreciate it.

See this as part of a tour of the forum. You can't miss this. I recommend booking with a small group to make the most of your visit.

It's a beautiful arch but it is situated in the shadow of the spectacular Colosseum so I don't think it gets the notice it deserves.
