Amazing Roman arch which looks rather out of place as nothing else Roman seems to be there. Still interesting to walk underneath and let the imagination of past centuries flow by.

The Arco dates to 23 AD and is an amazing example of Roman engineering. Right around the corner is the church of S. Ansone. Enter the church and to the left of the alter is the entrance to the cript of S. Lucco. The cript and church were built on top of a Roman temple that the arch, a tribute to a dead brother, was built beside.

Not much to see after you've seen it. Except, it is next door to the Tempio Del Gusto restaurant and the Piazza del Mercato.

The Arco di Druso is situated at the entrance to the forum (now the piazza mercato). It has been partially incorporated into the more recent shops on one side of the road. On the other it is very close to the Roman temple which is now under the church (parts of which can be seen from the church's crypt. The arch commemorates two sons of Augustus who perished in suspicious circumstances, leaving the way open for Tiberius.
