On the Via Sacra, it is southeast of the Roman Forum. It was built by the emperor Domitian to commemorate his older brother and the victory against the Jewish rebellion in Judaea. Its decorative work includes the apotheosis of Titus and spoils taken from the Temple in Jeruslem, including the Menorah or golden candelabrum.

The arch is dedicated by the Senate and people of Rome to the emperor Titus after his victory over Judea (AD 70).

One of the reliefs shows the procession with the booty taken from Jerusalem, including the seven-branched candlestick. Another one depicts Titus on his chariot, followed by the citizens of Rome.

The arch of Titus is remarkably preserved and is one of the most notable attractions of the Roman Forum.

Considerably smaller than near Arch of Constantine, the Arch of Titus is a single passageway arch structure along the ancient Via Sacra and fairly near the southwest entrance area of the Roman Forum.

The arch was built in 82 AD to celebrate Emperor Domitian's brother Titus and his victory over Judea (70 AD). The arch is adorned with reliefs can be viewed from up close while exploring the Roman Forum grounds around Via Sacra.

The Arch of Titus is the smallest of the three triumphal arches in the Roman Forum. Unlike the giant Arch of Constantine, it has only one central corridor and arch and doesn’t seem quite as impressive or showy.
However it is the oldest of the three and commemorates Titus’ victory in the Jewish War of 66-74 CE, which led to the fall of Jerusalem.
A rope stops you from being able to walk through the arch but otherwise you can walk right up close to it. It is free because you can see it without having to go through the Roman Forum entry gates.
What caught my eye were the reliefs on the inside of the arch. They are very well preserved and tell the story of the Emperor Titus’ triumphal return to Rome after his Jerusalem victory.
On one side, Titus can be seen looking every bit the returning war-hero. Standing in his chariot, he is ready to receive the praise and admiration of the crowd as he makes his triumphal procession through the city. The winged goddess of Victory hovers around his head.
On the other side, you can see Titus’ soldiers carrying the spoils of war, mostly treasures taken from the Temple of Jerusalem. The plundered goods were carried through the streets as part of the triumphal procession so that everyone could gawk at the riches being brought back to Rome. Among the treasures, a large seven-branched Menorah stands out.

The Arch of Titus sits at the entry to the Roman Forum. It is a large monument dedicated to Titus who had ruled as the Emperor of the Roman Empire. While Titus's father, Vespasian, was the Caesar, Titus commanded the Roman armies to put down the Jewish uprising in Judea. He besieged the city of Jerusalem and destroyed the Jewish temple. There are relief carvings on the inside of the Arch of Titus that depict the Roman armies carrying off the Jewish menorah from inside the Temple in Jerusalem. This was a major event in history that has implications even for politics today. There is so much history depicted on this Arch and it stands grandly at the entry to the Forum. In order to see it up close you need to have paid admission into the Forum. The Forum is a must see and I suggest you spend some time admiring the Arch of Titus as you enter.

If you visit the Colosseum, you can't possibly the Arch. It's literally right next to it. Worth spending some time viewing and appreciating as its a huge, beautiful arch. Of course, the history is less than stellar but still an important part of history.

Another great find within the Roman Forum. So much detail still intact. It is quite incredible to look at. Unfortunately, you have to pay the entry fee for the whole forum, even if you just want to see this. But once you're inside. Look for it!

This is more than another monument. It is a reminder that history must not repeat itself. It reveals the heartbreaking history of the brutal Roman destruction and devastation of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD. The arch also shows the spoils that Titus brought back to Rome, not to mention the Jewish slaves. It is a sickening reminder of the atrocities the Jewish people have suffered throughout history.

Each of the arches represents a victory, this is to signify the conquering of Jerusalem. Whilst it is a very impressive arch and the decorations tell its story, it could be easily missed without the aid of a guide as there is so much to look at in the Forum.

One of the great monuments of ancient Rome, the Arch of Titus was built in 82 C.E. by the Emperor Domitian to honor his late brother, the Emperor Titus, and his military victories, importantly, the Siege of Jerusalem. One of the inside panels shows the looting of the Temple: Roman soldiers carry off a golden menorah (faint traces of yellow-gold paint have been discovered) and other treasures. The other panel has the Emperor Titus in a chariot drawn by four steeds, being crowned with a laurel wreath. Not to be missed for a history lover.
