A lovely arch, it's the largest in Rome of its kind, and was built in 315AD.

It is 25m high, 21m wide and 11m deep.

It is symbolic in the fact that the Emporer Constantine brought Christianity into an otherwise pagain Rome, when under the leadership of Emporer Maxentius.

It stands to the side of the coliseum, just before you tackle the heavily cobbled road of Via Sacre which leads to the forum, and is well worth checking out, as it has incredible detail.

Address: Via di San Gregorio, Roma
Directions: It lies between the Coliseum and Palatine Hill
