Roman triumphal arch in Rimini
The mighty triumphal arch Arco d’Augusto is situated in the east of Rimini at the end of Corso d’Augusto. It was constructed by Emperor Augustus in 27 AD and therefore is Italy’s oldest triumphal arch. It once marked the south entrance to Roman Arminium. The arch was built from large blocks of travertine divided by Corinthian engaged columns. Four deities – Jove, Apollo, Neptune and Venus – welcome and / or bid farewell to the visitors of this Roman city.
