What you'll do

COVID notice: during the current situation, the tour will be held as a private one (so I will block the rest available spots after every first booking for a given day).

Discover the town of Plovdiv- one of the oldest existing settlements in the world! See the Roman Theater and parts of the Roman Stadium. Walk through the longest pedestrian street in Europe. Explore the magnificent Revival old town with its unique colorful houses from the 19th century. See the recently uncovered early Christian mosaics dating back to the 4th century!

The cliche "you must see Plovdiv to see Bulgaria" is absolutely true and there is so much to explore in the country's second-largest town. Plovdiv is about 2 hours drive from Sofia and is situated in the western part of the Thracian Valley. It is one of the oldest settlements in the world, having emerged on the three adjacent hills – the beginning of its history dates back to 4,000 years BC. It has preserved Thracian, Roman and Bulgarian heritage from different epochs. There will be a 2 hour guided walking tour in the heart of the town and you will learn lots of historical facts and legends while exploring its most interesting sightseeing places. After it, you will have about 2 hours of free time for lunch. The estimated time of arrival back in Sofia is
5- 5:30pm.
