  • From the city it runs about 15 minutes, but it's worth. Tickets cost 4 euros and then you can put yourself back in the time of the Romans.

  • Impressive arena from the Roman period of Trier. Just outside the village but in Nice condition. Stands and floor still present so that picture of gladiators and animal fights is easily visible.

  • Roman Amphitheater in Trier. The acoustics were amazing in this two thousand year old structure...a normal conversation could be easily heard from the other side. Any special musical event here would certainly be a treat!
  • Incredible to see such ancient ruins up close and personal. If you're there at the right time you can see a teacher instructing students in the styles of gladiatorial combat!
  • You wouldn't expect this in a city, so that was a surprise. Very nice place, lots of history and lots to learn. Educational. Great for kids. No tours, you can just walk around. Very photogenic place and impressive landmark.
  • Fascinating old Roman theater with great acoustics and a profound echo. The theater, the seats and the basement are quite large & empty but they can make for an interesting walk.
  • A must see! So much to see and you definitely need to go here!
