A great monument

It is located at the exit of Colosseum. Just stop here for few moments, click some pictures and continue your trip towards Roman Forum.

This monument is impossible to miss due to its sheer size and its location being directly in between the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. There's not an awful lot to see here as the arch is fenced off approx. a metre around it's perimeter, so a quick customary photo will suffice though it's better to take a picture from afar... More

The arch of Constantine was built by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Melvin Bridge in 312 AD. Dedicated in 315 AD, it is the largest Roman arch. The arch is located near the Roman Colosseum.

You get out of train station and boom! You are face to face with colosseum and this arch. When we went you couldn't seem to get there it or even climb it to look at the view which was kinda disappointing

A beautiful example of Roman architecture and what a triumphant arch should look like! We enjoyed walking around and soaking in every square foot of art.

Wouldn't be making a special trip to see this but as it is by the Colosseum... just your standard triumphant arch

Staying in Monti

Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
