Ever since I took my very first Art History class, I have totally loved the Arch of Constantine (in front of the Colosseum). I can't explain it.. I just do. And so, I of course, absolutely had to visit it the first time I traveled to Rome. I think it may have even been the very first thing I saw.. .. (or possibly second behind the Colosseum).
The Arch of Constantine is a triumphal arch in Rome, situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the largest Roman triumphal arch. . . . .
