  • Actually quite interesting, but unfortunately I missed what actually is what signs. Also a mine could have no explanations, because what should be done urgently.

  • This attraction is the best in my opinion offered by the city! It is a huge place filled with history that you should know if you're having or planning to visit the city. The best thing for me was the short walks in the underground part of the Amphitheater because feels that old air mixed with moisture and history that makes the really pleasant visit. Adults cancelled a value of 4 euros

  • There are no great emotion to visit except the underground part that brings some little-known elements of the design of arenas. The amphitheatre of Orange is much more impressive

  • 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!
