Owner description: Built in 315AD and noted by its triple arches, this structure commemorates Constantine's victory over Maxentuis.
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Constantine's Arch is beautiful, but why it has to be kept behind an eight foot high cage is beyond me. You can't walk through it, can't get particularly close, and all photos of it have to cut off the lower half.

This, and the 'treatment' the local authorities are giving the Colosseum, is infuriating.

The arch is almost ignored and forgotten because of the Colosseum on its left that towers over it magnificently however the arch is one of the last remaining in Rome and definitely deserves some attention and at least a picture next to it. If you are visited the Colosseum or Roman Forum (which both exit next to the Arch) then you don't really have to travel far to see this fantastic piece of history.

Such an impressive sight to behold, and right next to the colosseum! The giant barriers round the bottom ruin it slightly but of course, these things need to be preserved!

This arch is one of the very few remaining standing in Rome and is even one of the rarer triple archs left standing. Tip: in spite of the arch's history, admire it while grabbing a panini from a nearby food cart, snap a few pictures and continue to the Colosseum or Roman Forums.

Just a short distance from the Colosseum, this arch could easily be missed. With everything in Rome, a city has built up around these historic places.
