Arco di Costantino


The Arch of Constantine is a triumphal arch, erected c. 315 CE to commemorate the triumph of Constantine I after his victory over Maxentius in the battle at the Milvian Bridge in 312 CE. The arch is located in the valley of the Colosseum, between the Palatine Hill and the Colosseum, along the road taken by the triumphal processions.

Your pictures are really nice, Joe. I really like this one of the arch. My husband just told me he was there so I said I'd like to go one day.

Seems like Napolean may have pinched the design idea for the Arc du Carosel in Paris from this arch. It is very grand!
