"Trier ... Rome Secunda" Trier by Helga67

Trier Travel Guide: 569 reviews and 1,410 photos

T R I E R was once known as Rome Secunda.
As the Romans spread over Europe, they established satellite capitals for ruling their distant colonies. Trier became a very important Roman city in those day. Today you can still witness the many Roman buildings (Porta Nigra, Amphitheater, ..)

Trier is well located, close to the border with Luxembourg and France, where the Ruwer and Saar Rivers meet the Mosel. It's not only an interesting city for its rich Roman architecture but also for its Mosel wine.

    Nice page! I once lived in Trier for six months (a long time ago) and even took a course on how to be a tourist guide there, but then left before I could actually do it. (When I was in high school our big football rival was called New Trier.)

    As a big fan of all things Roman and also Gothic, there's plenty here to fill my appetite. Well done.

    I knew from only reading about Trier that I should visit, now having seen photos I'm desperate to go!

    I spent many days picnicing under the PORTA NIGRA. Trier is a spectacular city &, thanks to your page, we can all see why.
