The Romans were unable to pass their passion for such games onto the generations that followed, and the amphitheatre was used more as a quarry in subsequent centuries. But that’s good news for modern-day visitors, as the exposed greenery shows them what makes Trier’s amphitheatre so special: Its embedded location in the nature slope of the Petrisberg. Oh yes, and its scale is consequently clear for all to see too. Measuring 120 x 145 metres, Trier’s amphitheatre ranks 10th among the world’s largest preserved Roman amphitheatres.
A must for: Fighters. Sports enthusiasts. Green thumbs. Mountaineers and basement-dwellers.
