Sept 23-Oct 8, 2010
Join your tour group in Trier to view the 11th Century Romanesque
Cathedral. If you are coming from Luxembourg City remember to get off
at the second stop. I didn't and had quite an adventure when I joined a
French woman traveler who had to get a connecting train.
The City of Trier is 2000 years old. It was named the
"Rome of the North". You will see plenty of Roman
ruins including Porta Negra, the last of four
remaining gates into the city.
This relief was found
during the excavation
for a subterranean
restaurant where we ate
a scrumptious dinner.
Replica of a Roman Burial Monument. See the wine barrels.
Rococco Architecture of Electoral Palace c 1716,
restored 1954-56. There are beautiful gardens also.
