Arch of Constantine history

The Arch of Constantine was a triumphal arch built by the Roman Emperor Constantine I, also known as Constantine the Great, in 315AD.

Erected to commemorate Constantine’s victory at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312AD, the Arch of Constantine contains an inscription dedicated to the emperor which can still be read today.

The Arch of Constantine is situated next to the Colosseum and near to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. It is free to visit and there are no opening hours. As well as the Arch of Constantine, there are two other triumphal arches in Rome, the Arch of Titus and the Arch of Severus.

The Arch of Constantine was erected so as to pay tribute to the victory of Constantine at the Battle of Milvian Bridge, where he fought Maxentius in 312 AD. This event was a definitive one from the point of view of Christianity and Christian history. (comment edited by Mod)

Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Arch of Constantine is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
