6 days

From $2,525

Activity Level:


There are few cities north of the Alps which have such splendid Roman ruins as Augusta Treverorum, most of which date from the fourth century AD when the city was the capital of the Prefecture Gaul. Enjoy visits to its UNESCO listed Roman remains, including the largely intact Porta Nigra and the Aula Constantiniana, as well as two impressive bath complexes. The tour also explores Trier’s wonderful Gothic architecture, particularly the Liebfrauenkirche and Cathedral of Trier, the oldest church in Germany and resonant of the city’s prosperity in middle ages, when the archbishop-elector of Trier controlled much of the surrounding area. Steeped in the majesty of the Moselle region, we will also explore some of its spectacular castles, including Vianden and Bourscheid Castles, as well as the UNESCO listed historic centre of Luxembourg, all while sampling the region’s famous wines and immersed in the festive spirits and Christmas markets of Trier and Luxembourg.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the extensive Roman remains in Trier and consider the city’s crucial role in the late antique period
  • Visit Vianden Castle in Luxembourg, once a Roman castellum and later the enormous fortified residence of the influential Counts of Vianden
  • View the Cathedral of Trier, first built in the 4th century AD perhaps at the orders of Constantine the Great
  • Get into the festive spirit by visiting the Christmas markets of Trier and Luxembourg
