Spent a good hour walking around here, enjoying the atmosphere and structure. Amazing to be able to go below the arena and see the wooden beams holding up the arena surface.

We made the visit on a very hot day. Bus stop outside the venue. Only 3€ each for seniors. Very impressive site. All areas accessable.

A must if you visit Trier. Lovely example of a Roman amphitheatre. Incredibly well preserved and you can sense what it must have been like all those years ago.

An improvement would be more information/signage. It was interesting to walk underneath the "floor" of the amphitheater and see how it was supported. Walking around and on the grassy slopes provided insight into how this space would have been viewed in Roman times.

Even on a gloomy day, this is an impressive structure. Home to gladiatorial battles, and other forms of entertainment dating back to the 2nd century A.D., you are free to walk throughout the amphitheater and absorb the history.
