If this arch looses some of it's grandeur just for the fact that it is standing next to a wonder of the world. It's not the arch's fault, so show a little love as you pass it on your way to the Colosseum.

It was built to celebrate one of Constantine battles at Ponte Milvio. But on it you can see scenes from other important battles during the centuries. It is a great history lesson sclupted in "stone". It is close to Colosseum but is wort at least the same amount of attention.

We passed this arch as we headed to the Palatine Hill entrance after we left the Colosseum. Nice place to take a photo with Colosseum in the background.

We saw the Arch of Constantine on our visit to the Colosseum. At 21 meters high and 25.9 meters wide visitors will not miss it standing between the Colosseum and The Roman Forum. We went up to the perimeter fence around the Arch, but could not see any information boards or alike to teach us about what we were looking... More

The best example of a victory arch in a city that is full of them. Well worth spending time studying the engravings as they are very detailed and informative.

We saw this amazing arch in amazing condition as we entered the Colosseum, but didn't know it had it's own history. We approached it and we saw a menorah engraved in it, my mom said "What's a menorah doing in Rome?"... so we walked around it and they had the whole history written out for people like me who was...

They really put up significant victory arches to celebrate their emperors. It is amazingly still standing.

Saw this while doing a sight seeing tour of Rome. It's very impressive and worth a look but you can't really say much more about an arch.

There isn't much to say about this really. It's a stunning structure well worth a look in while you're viewing the Colosseum. The elevated balconies of the Colosseum give you a great chance to see it a bit better. This monument marked Constantine's entrance to the city of Rome, so check it out when you can :)

Arch celebrating the Emperor Constantine's victory over rival and consolidation of power. Right next ti Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Constantine was the first empwror to convert to Christianity, hence a monumental historical figure that influenced the course of human history. Can't miss it when you go to see Colosseum.
