    A well-preserved amphitheatre in Trier
    The amphitheatre is quite well-preserved. The original seating is long gone, but you can go underneath the arena to the area where the gladiators and wild beasts were once kept before the shows. It is a little outside of the main area of the old city of Trier, but well worth a visit.

    Whilst there is not a great deal to see per se, I felt this amphitheatre was more evocative than some of those that are far grander in other countries. I could really imagine the action that took place there. It was interesting to be able to walk below and see some of the storage and caged areas there, too.

    A Journey Back in Time Through an Ancient Roman Ruin
    You can walk to the Amphitheater from the main train station (about 1 mile) and pass by the Rhineland Museum, Kurfürstliches Palais, and Kaiserthermen as you go. Although the seating is long gone, you get a feel for the layout and construction if you walk around the upper structure. The central walls are extant and you are able to imagine a stadium crowded with people to view gladiators as you look up from the center arena. The underground portion is also able to be visited, so don't miss it. It is not well-marked, but there are two different stairways to see the cellar underneath, where the equipment and animals were stored.

    A roman amphitheater within the wineyards
    Before leaving Trier we visited the Amphitheater that is located just outside the city. The family ticket (2 adults + 2 kids) costs 8 Euros and the visit is quick and very nice. Particularly interesting the visit below the amphitheater. All around the hills are covered with wine yards. The visit is rather short, in less than 30min we have seen but it is really nice and very well preserved.

    Worth the visit—our modern day stadiums are based on this design!
    Another cool Roman site that is actively being studied. Just like the Porta Nigra and Kaisertherme, this site also cost 4 or 5 Euro. The site has three levels, only the arena floor is ADA accessible. At the arena floor are several rooms for entrance to the seating and rooms for holding stuff then and now. From here you can see the seating circling around the arena and you can go up into the stands on one side—it is steep stairs with no protection so mind your step for sure. From the arena floor you can get under the arena to see the workings of where they kept animals and combatants or brought up equipment, that was very interesting (bring a flashlight). The amphitheater is across the busy street from the Kaisertherme, not even a full kilometer walk. There is a tunnel that takes you under the street safely and or you can take a pretty bike path.

    A definite must see
    We walked past the Kurfürstliches Palais and Kaiserthermen to get to this well preserved amphitheater which was built in the 2nd century. We looked around on top and even though there was no terraced seating left we could still imagine the thousands of spectators watching the gladiators fight to their death. The tunnels underneath gave us a good idea of where the gladiators and animals were kept and brought up to the arena. A definite must see.

My favorite part was the arena cellar (Arenakeller) dendrochronology dates the preserved wood found here to be around 300 AD, the drainage system here still works today draining mountain water throughout the year.

This is a beautful ampitheatre and well worth the walk up from the centre of Trier, because you'll pass other beauitful monuments and museums to visit along the way; there is a car-park at the site.

If you are into Roman history and its buildings, the amphitheater is well worth your time. Of course, it is much smaller than the Collosseum but one can walk through the catacombs where the gladiators and wild animals were kept.
