This excellently preserved Roman arc serves as the perfect entrance to Benevento’s picturesque pedestrian main streets.

Striking during the day and beautifully lit at night, while I wouldn’t call this something worth travelling to Benevento to see, if you’re there it’s definitely worth seeing (albeit it is hard to miss)

A great triumph arch, with lots of carved scenes that are well preserved. This is a good entrance for the historic town.

While not a knockout, this is a nice monument to see. It's not hard to find. It is surrounded by traffic on the front with some buildings on the back side. But if you are patient, you can get an uncluttered photo without the traffic. The Arco has wonderfully preserved engravings on each façade and on the inside. You should definitely seek it out if you are visiting Benevento, but it's not really worth coming here just for that.

Benevento is a beautiful city with a lot of great things to see, this being one of them. Take time to walk around!

Visit only if you happen to be in vicinity. It’s attractive but not enough to travel to Benevento specially for it.

Apparently the city here was leveled in the 1700’s by an earthquake but this Roman Arch didn’t budge. And whoever built it would be amazed to see skateboarding happen around its base.

It is unlikely you will come here and not see it. I suggest you spend some time and take a close look at the reliefs. They are very interesting

The so called Arch of Trajan, was as the name suggests, built during Emperor Trajan's reign between 114 and 117 A.D. It is considered to be the best preserved roman arch in the world as it was incorporated in the city walls during the medieval times as the Golden Gate. It was really noteworthy with scenes of peace looking towards the city center, and scenes of war looking outwards.

Built between 114 and 117, this triumphal arch dedicated to emperor Trajan, is the best preserved and well worth a visit.
