Arch of Constantine is one of the three triumphal arches in the Rome and is the largest one lying close to Colosseum. This was built in place in 315 AD for celebrating the victory of Constantine’s Emperor who won the battle of Milvian Bridge (312 AD). The arch was made with this particular intention but all of its parts as of yet are not original anymore. The decorating statues were initially placed at the Trajan Forum. While the marble medallions of the arch have also been taken from the Emperor Hadrian’s monument. This tourism spot is all day open for the public without charging any fee and it can be easily accessed from Colosseum.
