Arch of Constantine

Rome, Italy
4.9 / 69
The Arc de Triomphe, erected by Emperor Constantine in honor of the victory in the civil war over the troops of his rival Marcus Aurelius Valery Maxentius. It was under Constantine that Christianity became the official religion (the ruler believed that God himself helped him to come to power), the capital of the Empire was transferred to Constantinople, and Rome gradually began to lose its former power and decline.

This is located outside the Colosseum. A ticket is not needed for viewing. The carving are beautiful after all these decades. Although the faces are worn on the carvings. You still can see the details of the carving. Incredible!

Included in the tickets to the colosseum. Not many people wander up there so it’s nice to look around from the vantage point. There’s a little museum you can walk through (with bathrooms) and it’s again, pretty quiet so check it out.. Read more »
Was next to the Colosseum so we went to check it out. It’s fenced so you cannot go under it but you can walk around it for free and get good photos. The path we walked on felt like I was gonna trip and had water on the floor almost everywhere s.. Read more »
Amazing triumphal Arch. You walk right up next to it and get a good detailed look at the inscriptions. This is free to walk around it and not inside the Roman forum. You can also get a higher up view from the colosseum.

I liked this arc more than the Colosseum itself, actually. Very detailed and more meaningful in my opinion.

An arch with a history of controversial origin 'arched' over the years. Some say it was built by Hadrian and later reworked by Constantine, others say it was all Constantine. Suffice to say that the depicitions on it are more around random .. Read more »

I am a fan of archways and this one was no disappointment. It is near the coliseum so can be rather crowded during the day. It is lit decently well in the evenings and makes a good backdrop for photos. I wouldn't seek this out if it was alot but.. Read more »

Not a far walk from the Colosseum. The arch is very detailed and a sight to see and a strong representation of Christianity. Did I tell you it is one of the free sites to see in Rome. #freeromesight

The Arch of Constantine stands beside the Colosseum. It is particularly interesting because it is like a jigsaw made up of other monuments. It was built using material from Trajan's Forum, from where the statues of the Dacian prisoners and the f.. Read more »

Nice Photo Spot. Perfect in combination with the Colosseum. And not only that. The place has an amazing historic atmosphere.

To have survived the ravages of time is impressive. I can only imagine truly how impressive it would have been to see this arch and the Colosseum at the height of the Roman Empire. To me, the best views of the Arch of Constantine are from inside the.. Read more »

The arch is massive and well maintained still. I wish they gave you more room to take better photos and appreciate it at all angles. Photos as of February 2020.
