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.

'Arco di Druso e Germanico' is an ancient Roman arch which was built in 23 AD, it is located on Via Arco di Druso between Piazza Mercato and Piazza Pietro Fontana. The arch was built by the Senate to honour the death of Emperor Tiberius's son Drusus and his adopted son Germanicus.

This ancient single arch, built from large blocks of locally sourced limestone could easily be missed while you are leisurely walking along the streets of Spoleto. For more information on this interesting arch, take the small staircase by the arch down two metres where you can read the history and take awhile to view the architecture at your leisure.
