Arco di Costantino, Rome

4.6
#71 of 2,926 in Things to do in Rome
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.
