… the Arch of Constantine is a stone’s throw away
This triumphal arch was built in AD 315 a few years before Constantine moved the capital of the Empire to Byzantium. It was built to celebrate Constantine’s victory in AD 312 over his co-emperor Maxentius
Looking towards the Roman Forum and the Arch of Titus ..
The ruins of the Temple of Venus and Rome, built in AD 135, in front of the Santa Francesca Romana, one of a number of churches built among the ruins of the Forum (the Romanesque bell tower is the church tower) ..
I wasn’t sure what the structure was under the half dome so I zoomed into it. Some sort of modern sculpture/art … .. very odd, I thought !!!!
Looking back to the Arch of Constantine and Colosseum we made our our way to Circus Maximus and the Roman Forum ..
