Located a short walk west of the Colosseum, this well-preserved monumental arch was erected (sometime soon after 315) to commemorate the victory of Constantine, the first Christian emperor, over his rival Maxentius at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312. In general design, the Arch of Constantine imitates the century-earlier Arch of Septimius Severus (nearby in the Forum) - the quality of its sculptural decoration, however, betrays the slow degradation that Classical Roman sculpture had experienced in the 3rd century AD. Free to view.
A huge arch just outside the Colosseum, from where you can get great views of it too.
Another awesome thing to see by the forum and the colosseum. So detailed, and huge too!
When I visited Rome, the Arch of Constantine was under restoration; however, it didn't stop us from taking photos of it. It was erected in 315 AD by the Roman senate to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius in the Battle of Milvian Bridge. It's one of a few triumphal arches left in the city. It has 3 archways and is an example of the changing styles within the 4th century. It's located right by the Colosseum so it's hard to miss.
WOOW !! For the people interested in The Holy Bible History, this is a place you cannot miss. Although it is right beside the Colosseum, but you cannot just disregard it. Loved the Drawings explaining the raid of the Romans on Jerusalem and the capture of prisoners and taking Holy spoils from the Tabernacle.
Pass by the Arch as you walk from the Colosseum to the Forum entrance. Take zoom photos of individual carvings and inscriptions to study later. This massive work of art is fascinating. Also get a good view from the top of the small rise as you walk into the Forum area- great for photos from this vantage point. It's mind-boggling to comtemplate the history of the Arch, the Colosseum next to it, and the Forum. Just fabulous.The dress-up gladiator guys want money if you so much as look at them.
