Imposing

For me, this is the most impressive arch in Rome. It's located on a road between Caelian Hill and Palatine Hill where they once celebrated victory marches. It's 21 meters high, 26 meters wide, and more than 7 meters thick. It was built in 315AD to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the reign of Constantine and his victory over Maxentius at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312AD. A restoration took place in 1804 and it is now decorated with medallions.

Constantine I is considered to be the first Christian Emperor since he converted to Christianity on his deathbed. This arch, however, makes no reference to this. The bottom of the arch is built from blocks of marble and the upper part is brick with marble trim. As far as the decoration goes, it's in accordance with other monuments of the time: Flavian columns, sculptures of Trajan, and roundels of Adrian. There are also reliefs of Constantine and a very detailed depiction of the battle.

Commemorating the battle of the milvian bridge

The Arch of Constantine is located at the foot of the Colosseum. It’s surrounded by a security fence since it was deteriorating because so many people were taking pieces of the arch as souvenirs. The triumphal arch was erected to commemorate the victory of Constantine the Great in the Battle of the Milvian Bridge on the 28th of October 312 AD. Dedicated in 315, it is the newest of Rome’s existing triumphal arches, but it's different since materials from older buildings were used to build it. The arch is 21 meters high, 25.7 m wide and 7.4 m deep.
