Near the Colosseum - you can't miss it!

A beautiful example of Roman architecture and what a triumphant arch should look like! We enjoyed walking around and soaking in every square foot of art.

Have always been impressed with this beautiful arch. Make sure you have a guide to share with you all of the historical info OR brush up on your history info before visiting the area.

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

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.
