When I visited Rome, the Arch of Constantine was under restoration; however, it didn't stop us from taking photos of it. It was erected in 315 AD by the Roman senate to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius in the Battle of Milvian Bridge. It's one of a few triumphal arches left in the city. It has 3 archways and is an example of the changing styles within the 4th century. It's located right by the Colosseum so it's hard to miss.

I wandered past the Arco di Costantino quite by accident. Leaving my group in Il Colosseo in a rush to the Foro Romano to meet up with an Italian friend, I took a path directly passing this beautiful arch.
Late and trying to find my way, I did not take in the fact that this monument was built way back in 315 for the Emperor Constantine, commemorating his victory over Roman Emperor Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge during the Roman civil wars.
This is also a particular fond monument of mine because it was featured in a beautiful scene in one of my favorite films, La meglio gioventù. If you've seen it, it's the scene where Matteo and Mirella order some castagne.
I had the opportunity to revisit on the way back, alongside my friend, to take in the majesty of this triumphal arch.

This is just too cool to miss. More imposing in person than expected. But hard to do justice in a photo. Lots of tourists almost all times of year, but still do it.

The Arch of Constantine is located between Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. Built in 312 (talk about ancient!), the arch is prominent size and evokes a glimmer of ancient Rome.Recommended for:History Buffs

The Arch of Constantine is a huge arch commemorating the victory of Constantine over Maxentius to control the Tiber and become the sole emperor of Rome. It's an impressive structure, although you can't get close to it to have a really good look.
