What's a good vine for an archway?

I was just wondering what would be a good vine to grow on my archway over my sidewalk? I would like something with bright flowers and is easy to grow and take care of since this my first year ever gardening.

Morning glories for quick coverage and ease.

Clematis, really can't beat these perennial vines for their amazing display. They require deeply amended soil and a few years to settle in and establish. Planting deeply and providing winter protection will help to ensure they make it through winter. These really are my absolute favorite vines!
