Arch of Constantine, Rome: 75 reviews and 143 photos


This arch is the youngest and largest of the three triumphal arches in the roman forums with a height of 21 meters and a width of approximately 25,7 meters. It was built between 312 and 315 after Constantine's victory over his enemy Maxentius. The reliefs show scenes from this war, but some of them also show victories from former roman emperors such as Trajan or Marcus Aurelius. Similar to the arch of Titus, this arch was part of a medieval fortress. Restorations began in the 19th century. The arch is really dwarved due to its vincinity to the Colosseum and some tourists even forget after seeing the Colosseum and the two other arches in the forum romanum.

Address: Via di San Gregorio, Roma
Directions: Next to the Colosseum in the Via di San Gregorio. That is the street between the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus.
