Trier Imperial Baths

The Trier Roman Amphitheater and Imperial Baths are a must see when visiting this oldest city in Europe.
Both can be done in one day.
I previously wrote about our visit to the Amphitheater.  You can read about that post here.

We will be exploring the Imperial Baths in this post.

The grounds of the baths are huge!  You could spend about 2-4 hours easily walking around and exploring. 
There is a parking lot to the left of the main entrance, immediately in the front.  The parking is typical, in terms of needing to pay at a meter and put your ticket on the dash of your car.

It's not expensive to get into the grounds (prices are listed below).
When you enter, there is a lot of information on the history of Roman leaders and how the grounds used to look, including a short film. 
You can go underground to these amazing labyrinths of tunnels.  (In the summertime it's a great cool place to escape the summer heat).

 You could spend at least an hour running around the underground tunnels exploring.  It's so much bigger underneath the above ground architecture.

There is also a beautiful open area and pond where people were picnicking, kids were running and playing, and overall relaxing.  It's a great place for the young and old to enjoy some culture and open exploring.
