Arco di Costantino, Rome

4.5
#33 of 483 in Sightseeing in Rome
Monument Landmark
A triumphal arch located between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill, Arco di Costantino uses a handful of major reliefs from former imperial monuments in its design. This created a stylistic contrast that depicts much of the city's history before the fourth century. The arch was erected in 315 AD and spans the Via Triumphalis, where the emperors of Rome entered the city in triumph.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.

  • Located between the Palatine and the Colosseum. Very elaborate design with great photo opportunities from various angles. Another must see in Rome.  more »
  • A wonderful structure next to the coliseum. Difficult to explore properly if you have restricted mobility. But such an intricate and ornate piece of architecture.  more »
  • This arch is spectacular. Steeped in history and context and a powerful reminder of Constantine's impact on our world today. Check it out!  more »

  • Beautiful arch with view of Colosseum behind it. Lots of tourists and tour groups meet up here so arrive early if you don't want them in your pictures.
  • Very imposing arch. The Arch is covered with carvings. Worth seeing
  • I am so enamored at Roman history! The arch is one of the greatest symbols still erect! I wonder what it was like to march through it after a great victory...
  • Obviously historic. Must see. But also not a lot to see. Disappointing. To appreciate it have a guided tour
  • So hot but it has a very beautiful view of colosseum
