The oldest city in Germany, Trier has a lot of Roman ruins.  This is the Porta Nigra, the only one left of seven gates that used to surround the city.  

This street performer was literally floating off the ground.  I think his staff had some kind of support system built into it, but I was still impressed.
The beautiful gardens at the palace.
A replica of the foot, part of a statue.
Roman baths

ampitheater.  People were actually setting up for a concert that would be held there later in the day.  The acoustics in that place are great for events.  They also hold 'Gladiator school', which was going on the last time I visited.  

St. Peter's cathedral, where the robe of Christ is kept.

The fabulous carvings on the ceiling in the dome.  The amount of work that went into this cathedral is astounding.
