Arch of Constantine

Via di San Gregorio
Rome, 00184
+39 06 0608 (Tourist Information)
The Arch of Constantine is particularly interesting because it is like a jigsaw made up of other monuments. It was built using material from Trajan's Forum, from where the statues of the Dacian prisoners and the friezes representing Marcus Aurelius were also taken. The Arch was erected at the beginning of the fourth Century in honor of Constantine, following the victory over Maxentius. It is considered one of the last great monuments to be constructed by the Romans. It stands beside the Colosseum in the huge square which in summer is the site for one of the events of the Estate Romana. A huge screen is hung from the arch, on which films and videos are projected.
