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.

  • Really impressive this arch, one of the few things that leaves no room for imagination! To see after visiting the Colosseum!

  • The Arch of Constantine is located near the Colosseum, it is impossible not to see and pass by. Without it the Coliseum would look not so pompous. Through the openings of the triumphal arch of Constantine the Coliseum looks even dressed, чтоли) strikes as such facilities are maintained for many years. In the evening, this Coliseum and Constantine's Arch tandem even more interesting, they are highlighted in Orange and white light that creates the effect of lights! See and, and of course the photos turn out better too in the evening, when fewer tourists and all shines. Pleasant impressions!

  • 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.
