Arch of Constanine

One of the most delightful Rome experiences is to have a knowledgeable art historian explain to you the meanings entombed in the Constantine Archway.

The link with the Via Sacra that led up to the Capitol along the route followed by the triumphal processions, is the huge Constantine Arch, without doubt the finest example of its kind, built in 313 AD to commemorate the triumph of the first Christian Emperor, who vanquished Maxentius.
