Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum

Exiting the Forum, you come upon the 4th-century Arch of Constantine, decorated with recycled carvings glorifying previous Roman emporers, in whose league Constantine ranked hmself, of course.

Nearby is the Colosseum, built in 80 A.D. and now a grand ruin. Because of the heat, we gave it a miss, but its impressive even if you don’t go inside.
