4.5/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • By the side of the Coliseum. Like a smaller version of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris what is, is quite large and take a close look. Building may tend to be overlooked because of the huge Coliseum, and quite flavorful, so please look at this time.

  • The Arco di Constantino is located next to the Colosseum, built to commemorate the victory of Constantine at the battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 ad.

  • The arch was dedicated by the Senate to commemorate the victory of Constantine against Maxentius at the battle of the Milvian Bridge (28 October 312) and officially inaugurated in 315 on the anniversary of ten years of power of the emperor. It is absolutely an extraordinary example of Roman architecture still in perfect condition. In Rome there are only 2 other triumphal arches, the Arch of Titus and Septimius Severus, this is not to be missed, especially early in the morning or at sunset when thanks to a perfect light you can take pictures of this type. Good visit!

  • White, shining under the sun it's simply beautiful! And the Colosseum in the feel the power of the Roman empire. Really nice and well conserved!
  • Unless you're with a group, this isn't really interesting. Beautiful architecture, but not anything that special if you don't want to get into the symbolism and depictions (which you wont understand without guide or special guidebook).
  • It is a triumphal arch with three openings. The Arch can be considered as a real official Roman sculpture museum, extraordinary rich and important
  • One of many spectacular triumphal arches in Europe. With the backdrop of the Colosseum, it makes for quite a display of power and politics.
  • This is another ancient and nice structure in the Rome, really amazing.
