Roman ruins on the way to Trier
Trier is an old Roman city dating from 16BC when the Roman Emperor Augustus founded a city on this strategic site, which makes Trier Germany's oldest city.

Porta Nigra - the largest surviving Roman city gate north of the alps

The Roman amphitheater
(which has been scavenged over the centuries for stones to build houses)

The Roman bath (ditto)

Christiana's family has long owned a vineyard in Kröv
and her mother still owns a condo there on the Moselle River.
We spent a weekend there enjoying their annual wine festival.
