We came across this relatively small, mostly intact Roman arch in a fairly modern square in Trieste's Old Town. Partially incorporated into a nearby building, the Corinthian arch seemed to be in excellent condition after standing there since the 1st-century A.D. It measures about 24 feet high, 17 feet wide and 6 feet deep and displays an unadorned upper crown.

This city gate probably allowed pedestrians to go between the immediate neighborhood and Cardo Maximus. Theories about the arch's name range from Cardo evolving into Riccardo, to honoring Richard the Lionheart, who passed.
through Trieste.

Reaching this arch involves walking up winding streets along a steep hill. It was a windy, rainy day when we visited and some of the streets acted like wind tunnels. The pavement proved to be extremely slippery, so great care should be taken when making the ascent in poor weather conditions.

This small arch in the old part of Trieste is a charming reminder of the days when the Romans ruled this part of the world. Be aware that the streets and alleys surrounding the arch are winding, narrow, and steep – part of the charm of the area.

This is a not so significant Roman memory compared to the vast selection of Italy's Roman landmarks but it has a certain charm in that narrow street.

You have to ascend a pretty steep area to reach this location, but it is worth it. Continue up the hill to the lounge and bar that provides an almost 360 degree view of Trieste.

I haven't seen a single picture of the views of this great Roman Arch that can be found inside the Arco di Riccardo restaurant. The restaurant was closed but the owner was great and let us in to see the amazing views he has lovingly kept intact behind glass, both walls and floors. I did not eat here, in fact he was closed. But it shows the "other side" of the arch from what is available from just walking through nit.

On your way up to or down from the San Giusto find this piece of history. Arco di Riccardo was one of the gates of the ancient roman city of Tergeste.
It's on a nice piazza, have a coffee, rest and enjoy after taking photos and touch/feel the ancient stone.

I love it. Out or nowhere comes this ancient Arch. Triste doesn't have a ton of stuff, but this Arch almost makes the whole place worth the visit.

It's a wonder that Richard's Arch survived the urban encroachment. The Arch itself isn't particularly picturesque but it is set in a lovely part of town - narrow unspoiled streets, steep alleys, interesting churches and attractive traditional dwellings.

On your way up the winding streets to the church high above the town, you will pass the Arch, which is one of the few still standing Roman structures in the city. It's surrounded by modern day apartments, but is still worth seeking out.

In the middle of an old building, the Roman arc suddenly appears. The unexpected but beautiful. A such is all Trieste.
