The Arch of Constantine in Rome

Colosseum Rome - Arch of Constantine in Rome - Ancient Rome holidays - Palatine hill - Roman Forum - rome sightseeing tours -

The Arch of Constantine is the largest triumphal arch in Rome, located very close to the Colosseum and the Palatine.
It is based on the ancient Via Triumphalis, the path followed by the emperors when they entered Rome in triumph along the Via Sacra to reach the Roman Forum and the Capitol.
This arch was erected to commemorate Emperor Constantine's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312.
Three triumphal arches are still standing near the Roman Fora: the Arch of Constantine, the Arch of Titus and the Arch of Septimius Severus.
The Arch of Constantine is 21 meters high  and it was built with reliefs and pieces from other imperial monuments from the second century, with a final impressive stylistic effect.
During the Middle Ages, the Arch of Constantine has been incorporated into one of the strongholds of the powerful Frangipane family.
In modern times, the arch served as a spectacular finish line for the marathon at the 1960 Rome Summer Olympics.
