Arco di Costantino, Rome
(4.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Placed between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill, the Arch of Constantine seems small compared to the Coliseum... but it is not, it is in fact the largest Roman arcs... take the time to go around to appreciate the size of this arc of triumph that has experienced many changes since its inception but has been erected to honor the victory of Emperor Constantin the same emperor who establish Catholicism official religion of the Roman Empire.

  • It's a beautiful arch but it is situated in the shadow of the spectacular Colosseum so I don't think it gets the notice it deserves.

  • Just wonderful! However I wish there were more bench around to sit and enjoy the view
  • Beautiful, busy, behind the Colosseum, and if you're seeing the Colosseum you will simply not miss this Arc. It's beautiful and powerful.
  • So elaborate. Lit up nicely at night - and then you can also check out the coliseum
  • Beautiful ancient arch located next to the Colosseum. A great spot for photos.
  • The arch itself is great to look at while waiting in line for the Colosseum, but the large barrier detracts from it quite a bit. We were also harassed quite a bit by various tour operators trying to sell skip passes and guided tours.
