  • This was the only Roman ruin within the urban environment I found a little abandoned. Despite this, it is very beautiful. Is hidden in a small alley, therefore, needs to have attention to find him. There are other monuments around, so I recommend the visitation.

  • The origin of this arch is still uncertain and the subject of study. Probably dates back to the time of Constantine and takes its name from the Latin word "ianus", indicating a door or a covered walkway. Bordered by a fence, you cannot inspect it closely

  • I was excited to find out I was staying round the corner from the Arch of Janus, as I had read about during my studies at University. It's wonderful to see a surviving four sided arch.
  • This arch is special for being four-sided and also since it is one of the old entry spots to the "Cloaca Maxima" (Great Sewer of ancient Rome, which still exists)
  • Beautiful massive antique double arch.
  • singular and most suggestive structure of late- Imperial rome
  • about arch of janus The Arch of Janus in Rome is an ancient Roman monument which is exceptional for being the only remaining triumphal arch in the city to have four faces, a design feature known as Quadrifrons. Constructed in the early fourth century AD, the Arch of Janus was located at the periphery of the Forum Boarium, once Rome’s cattle market. Built of brick and marble, the arch has alcoves which would have originally contained statues and other decorative items, however these have not survived. Little is known about this arch and, despite its name, the Arch of Janus was probably built in honour of Roman Emperor Constantine the Great. As such, it is often known as Arcus Constantini. As Constantine himself converted to Christianity after his victory in the civil wars, there is much debate as to whether such a triumphal arch would have been dedicated to a pagan deity by Constantine, further compelling the mystery surrounding this monument.

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.
