The Arch of Gallienus , which today is like almost sandwiched between a church on one side and a private building on the other, is located in Via di San Vito, (steps away from Vittorio Emanuele metro station) and is a very ancient archaeological site, since it dates back to around 6th century BC and was part of the Servian Walls. Where today is this arch, once stood one of the ancient gates of the first walls of Rome, the Esquiline door. In those days the gate was given a monumental appearance with two minor arches at the sides of the major. Also the Arch of Gallienus is the central arch of a triple gate built under Augustus. In 262 AD it was dedicated to the Emperor Gallienus and to his wife Salonina who owned Horti Liciniani, a large estate outside the gate. Of the original arch, today essentially only the central archway remains. If you are around Via Merulana and Santa Maria Maggiore basilica, give it a look. Via San Vito is a lovely historic alley on the Esquiline Hill and it's just nice to walk through it.

This is a monumental arch between two buildings dedicated to Emperor Gallieno. It originally consist of three arches, but only the central arch is left. Worth a visit if in the area.

For the avid historian this arch is worth visiting and photographing. However, you may be disappointed in the area around it. The small street it is on was littered with debris. The piers are behind protective gates and the base of one pier was full of beer bottles. Seems this monument deserves better upkeep.

Pretty scenic arch, perhaps not worth a special trip but a pleasure to walk under daily. Area is cobbled, and adequate people until very late, if you don’t like visiting isolated places.

Located near Emmanuale stop opposite the Trofei di Mario Park. Merged with the road and a local Baisicila one might not see it.
