This ancient arch was erected as a celebration of the victories of Emperor Constantine who was the first Christian emperor of Rome who would eventually move the center of the Roman Empire to Constantinople (now Istanbul).

The arch stands in front of Meta Sedans, the ancient road traveled through this arch. It was erected to celebrate Constantine’s victories in 312. It is generously adorned with relief panels, round reliefs and frieze. The same inscription on both sides translates loosely to “...More

Located right between the Roman Forum and the Coliseum, you can view the Arch that is in very good shape, like over arches, for free. It honors his victories in battles throughout the ancient world.

The Arch of Constantine commemorates the Roman emperor's military achievement. It is right in front of the Colosseum and forms a nice historic landscape in the Eternal City.

You may be fascinated with arches or be a Christianphile, but this is an arch that photographers flock to. This arch is magnificent in its own right but situated right next to the Colosseum makes this arch one of the best to photograph in Rome.

The Arch is outside the Colosseum. You can just walk over and look at it. I highly recommend going at night. That whole area is lit up beautifully at night..
