Lovely 'blast from the past'. The Arch is within walking distance from other tourist sights and worth snapping a pic or simply admiring its architecture. Lots of cafes and gelato near by ;)

When you look at this graceful arch you can see the Roman legions marching through. Actuallly you can see the wheel marks from the chariots if you look closely or I think I could.

The fascinating ruts in the paving beneath the arch were worn by the passage of Roman chariots long ago. All reminiscent of wagon ruts on the Oregon Trail. The arch is beautiful too.
