Be there at 9 a.m. sharp and all the theater is yours! A must visit site if you are into Roman's history. If you are going to visit several sites, don't buy the single ticket, buy the combi card instead. It is really worth it...More

The Trier area is well known for the history site. Being the oldest City from Germany you expect more, and you'll be surprize because you'll see more ... Everything is well preserved ... Just perfect !

So, I was thinking the baths would be really impressive but instead we found the Amphitheater much more interesting. The entire place is very peaceful and so very well manicured. The outdoor area was nice as well as the underground area and the footpaths.

Impressive roman amphitheater, walk around 1 hour. Paid entrance, parking available on the streets. You can climb the stairs to see from above. You have to drive to the amphitheater, it is not walking distance to the center.

Impressive and huge, but sadly, mostly missing. Very little of the original structure remains. There is little to see that is original. The area under the arena floor is interesting.

The walk is not too far from the main attractions, but well worth your time. Admission is very cheap. Very nice attraction and it was really cool going underneath the amphitheater. This is a must see attraction if you find yourself in Trier.

Restored amphitheatre and lots of Trier history. The ancient beams under the floor are quite a surprise.
