Beautiful Arch of Augustus ( Arco d'Augusto ), together with the Tiberius Bridge, is one of the oldest Roman symbols of Rimini, as well as a fundamental reference point for the whole city. The monument is in fact located in the historic center, at the end of the Corso d'Augusto, which crosses the entire center until it reaches the Tiberius bridge. It has four shields or round portraits from Roman times, in which the four deities are depicted: Jupiter, recognizable by the lightning symbol; Apollo, depicted with zither and crow; Neptune, recognizable by the trident and the dolphin, and finally the Goddess of Rome, represented with the sword and the weapon trophy. A wonderful example of Roman history that we can enjoy.

An arch through time. Situated next to a park and near the center of the city sits the beautiful Arch. Hard to believe that it was built 2000 years ago and still stands today. A true jewel of the city

The beautiful Arco di Augusto stands at the south eastern end of Via Corso di Augusto (a busy shopping street). This is the oldest surviving Roman arch in the world. It was erected in 27 BC to honour Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus at the intersection of two main roads of the Roman Empire – Via Flaminia and Via Emilia.

Originally there was a statue of Augustus standing at the top of the arch. It must have been a magnificent view. The statue was taken down and in the 10th century replaced with the battlements which we see today.

From here, if you turn round and continue to the Via Corso di Augusto's other end, you will encounter another historic site -Ponte di Tiberio. It is an incredibly well-preserved bridge named after Tiberius, the emperor who completed it in the 1st century AD.

A magnificent Roman arch at the entrance to the historic old town of Rimini.

Having been to Rome and seen and absorbed the history from the Via del Corso, the old Via Flaminia, which makes its way right up through Italy to Rimini, has a magical feeling when you think of the Roman soldiers marching all that way……

When we see these ancient buildings everyday we do tend to take them for granted without realising the importance and history that they give us today.

To some it maybe just the entrance to the market, but it has so much more significance and is the oldest surviving Roman arch in Italy, being more than 2000 years old.

Gateway to the historical part of the city, worth the walk if you're staying by the beach. Close walk to the main city attractions, so generally easy to get to and easy to see.

A must see if in the area. Leads into the centre of Rimini and a good photo opportunity. See this, then walk to Tiberius Bridge for a bit of 2000+ Roman history!

The arch in the city is not something special but worth it to see when you are anyway downtown in Rimini.

The Arch, the oldest preserved in northern Italy, marks the entrance to the city for those coming from the Flaminia, the route traced by the consul Flaminio in 220 B.C. to connect Rome to Rimini. City gate and honorary arch, it was erected in 27 B.C. by the will of the Senate in celebration of Octavianus Augustus, as manifested by the inscription placed above the arch. Perhaps not everyone knows that the current Via del Corso in Rome is the ancient Via Flaminia, which starts in the capital and ends in Rimini
