This magnificent monument, the Arco di Constantino (Arch of Constantine) being overshadowed by the Colosseum (seen on the right in V1), is often ignored in favour of its neighbour. Built in AD 315, it was raised to commemorate the triumph of Emperor Constantine over Maxentius, his imperial rival, at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in AD 312 just north of Rome. It's the city's largest and best preserved arch, and one of the last major monuments built in ancient Rome.

What a beautiful arch this is and you have captured it so well it set my mind wondering what stories it could tell if it could talk it must have been part of an unbelievable wall or structure in times gone by A great shot Trevor xx

This is a stunning arch, Trev, beautifully created, and every bit as pleasing as the Colosseum. Very well captured. Carol

That is two rather impressive images you are showing us Trev..
love the details in both
but for me it has to be V2 for the wonderful way you have shown the buildings
and those trees! they really show off so well in the shot

A classic location and like the details and colours in both of these Trev, but for me you got a fine comp with V2.

The magnificence of Rome. If only they had known how their architecture and building
would survive I am sure their heads would have been even bigger.
These are two lovely captures of these monuments.V1 stands out best for me……
