Well, um, clearly a lot of history attached to it, but visually it's a bit dull. It's an arch. Nothing much around it to contextualise it. Looks like it's lost its way and landed there by accident.
If you're in the square in the middle of the Old Town you'll see it, but don't make a special journey or you'll be disappointed, unless you're really turned on by such things. At least you can cross the Tiberius Bridge (in Rimini). It's hard to engage with this one. It's just there.

I suppose the best thing is that you can walk right up to it and under it. At least it's not fenced off.

However, if you leave the Old Town by this exit, and cross the road, there's a pretty walk/cycle ride through a park down to the promenade and beach.

A must see place in the heart of Rimini. Very good location - if you go for a walk in the historic centre you can't miss it.

I have seen plenty of ruins. This is in good shape, but it is still an arch. If you have never seen one before you may be very impressed. What is impressive is that it withstood wars and time.

It is considered to be one of the most visited ancient arches in Rimini and Italy. It is like a symbol of Caesar Oktavian Epoch.

Wandering in Rimini city center is discovering some amazing architectural pieces of Ancient Rome, being the Arco d'Augusto the most famous and stunning one.
