This Arch of Septimius Severus is part of the Forum and located near the back. It is one of most preserved monuments in Rome. There is no fee for seeing the Arch and Forum areas but be sure and wear comfortable shoes since the landscaping is uneven and rocky. A must see for anyone visiting Rome!

The Arch of Septimius Severus is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and majestic arches that still stand in the city of Rome.
This should not be confused with the Arch of Constantine just beside the Colosseum, in fact it is located inside the Forum .
Inside the forum itself there are two arches and tend to be easy to get confused.
To understand the arch of Septimius is placed instill the Forum area near the exit.
You can look at it from a close distance of about 50 meters being close to the main road but I think to see the numerous full details you need to enter into the Forum and pay € 12, and admire it up close.
Only a few steps you can denote its beauty and sculptural carvings on it.
Absolutely not to be missed .

Located very close to the temple of Saturn, this 3rd century triumphal arch is one of the best preserved relics in the Forum.
Even today, some of the text on this gorgeous arch is still visible.
Like many relics of the Forum, this arch spent most of the Middle Ages under piles of ruble.

This gigantic arch if one of the great monuments of the Roman Forum. It is a magnificent triple arch erected in 203 C.E. in honor of the emperor Septimius Severus and his sons Geta and Caracalla (although Caracalla later killed his brother and had all images and references to him erased). We recently were fortunate to be able to tour the Roman Forum at night, and the arch was beautiful -- the air was humid and it made the light shining through the arch shimmer. Absolutely amazing!
