The Arch of Augustus in Fano (in the Province of Pesaro and Urbino) is a city gate in the form of a triumphal arch with three vaults.

It has always been one of the symbols of the city.History & DescriptionIn the Roman period it was the principle gate of Colonia Julia Fanestris, a colonia established in the town of Fanum Fortunae (temple of Fortuna) by the Roman architect Vitruvius at the command of the Emperor Augustus, in commemoration of the victory over the Carthaginian general Hasdrubal Barca in the Battle of Metauro during the Second Punic War.It is presumed that at least two other (now lost) gates existed in Fanum Fortunae, one to the south and the other near the sea.Constructed at the point at which the via Flaminia met the decumanus maximus of the city, the monument is dated to AD 9 by means of an inscription located on the frieze, with large characters carved in the rock which were once gilded in bronze.

  • Beautiful arch in the heart of Fano. Very well lit and maintained. Congratulations to management! To see!

  • I believe the visit to the arco di Augusto very interesting, I appreciate the excellent state of preservation and I am fascinated by his venerable age. Too bad the top were destroyed by bombing (say)

  • We walked from the Arch of Augustus to start the visit to the beautiful city of Fano. Shame to see just inside the door of the abandoned bicycle frames and a lot of dirt. Surely the emperor would leave proud. However the structure is imposing, beautiful and well preserved.
