After Titus conquered Jerusalem and destroyed the 2nd Temple, he carted off the treasure and slaves, making Rome rich again. The arch commemorates this. 2,000 years later we can look at this, think about history and marvel at the Roman's artwork.

Stopped here quickly after the Colosseum. Great spot for pictures. The only old Roman architecture is dumbfounding. So incredible what the Romans accomplished without modern devices.

This is a symbol of Roman might over the little peoples of their Empire. In this case the Jews whose temple treasures they plundered. This arch to the victorious conqueror Titus is a splendid but poignant reminder of extent of the empire and the opulence which came from plundering the treasures of others. Don`t miss the details of the inscriptions... More

Triumphal arch celebrat Titus' subjugation of Judea. Includes a relief showing the sacking of the temple in Jerusalem. Moving stuff for anyone of Judeo- Christian inclination, or anyone interested in history. Locate right next to Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Moving stuff...

It is a very important and interesting site but, of course, quite limited for the non-professional; part of forum.

One of the great monuments of ancient Rome, the Arch of Titus was built in 82 C.E. by the Emperor Domitian to honor his late brother, the Emperor Titus, and his military victories, importantly, the Siege of Jerusalem. One of the inside panels shows the looting of the Temple: Roman soldiers carry off a golden menorah (faint traces of yellow-gold... More

It's 70 AD, Titus has returned victorious from Israel (Judaea) where he has squashed an entire nation. Temples were reduced to rubble, holy relics looted, and many thousands of slaves were taken captive. They will go on to build the Colosseum and other Roman buildings (or be featured as entertainment in the Colosseum arena) ... these are events that were... More

There are so many lovely pieces of architecture that sometimes little gems get lost amongst the big gems. This is beautiful and it is worth taking the time to study it and ponder the reasoning behind it.

Situated close to entrance of Roman Forum along Via Sacra. Worth taking a few minutes to take a look before descending into the Forum. It is a 1st century AD honorific arch constructed around 82 AD by the Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus' victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70...

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
