Trier's colosseum Jul 05, 1996
At the early 2th century, an arena was build in Trier. As today we go and watch football, the Romans went to see slightly more violent "shows" of gladiators fighting each other and wild animals. The amphitheater here could house about 20.000 spectators, yet don't expect to see a second Colosseum. This is an ancient remaining that is most definitely valuable for history. Therefore it is listed by the UNESCO. Yet who expects to see some great architectural monument will probably be disappointed by it. I remember really liking it as a child though. It was so easy to imagine the Romans shouting and cheering, when sitting here on one of these ancient stones.

Well it's not the most spectacular attraction either. I really liked it as a kid, but I can imagine some people might be disappointed by it even. I do think however that it's worth a visit if you got the time for it.
