Arco di Constantino

By TrevBatWCC  
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

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……
