    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Plovdiv Old Town, Plovdiv 4000 Bulgaria

    Ancient Plovdiv Architectural Reserve is a well-preserved complex where on a relatively small area visitors can take walks through different historical ages, see ancient buildings adapted to the modern way of life and feel the spirit of the town from the Bulgarian Revival Period.

    The Old Town, as the complex is known, lies on a natural elevation – the three hills (the closely situated Dzhambaz Hill, Nebet Hill, and Taksim Hill). Many peoples have inhabited this place through the centuries. And all of them have left traces of their cultures and also the different names they gave to the town. Plovdiv is one of the oldest towns in Europe – it dates back to 4000 years BC. During Antiquity the Thracians came to the hill and set up a fortified settlement that was conquered by Philip of Macedon in the 2nd century BC. He gave one of the many names of the town - Philipopolis, and surrounded it with thick fortification walls. Later the Thracians regained control over the town, but after a series of battles they lost it to the Romans in the 1st century. A fortress from Thracian times is preserved on the very summit of Nebet Hill.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Plovdiv Roman Theatre, Plovdiv Old Town, Plovdiv 4000 Bulgaria

    The Roman theatre of Plovdiv is one of the world's best-preserved ancient theaters, located in the city center of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. It was constructed in the 90s of the 1st century AD, probably under the ruler ship of Emperor Domitian. The theater can host between 5000 and 7000 spectators and it is currently in use.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Driver and guide were polite and caring. The 7 passenger mini-van was not very comfortable. We were disappointed because we expected more depth in the historic explanations from the guide. We would have preferred to have more time in Plovdiv (only 2.5 hrs), instead of...More

    Interesting informative day out with the added bonus of seeing the amphitheatre in virtual reality. The historic centre of plovdiv is stunning with many interesting buildings and museums. Our guide was an excellent historian and it was very good value for money
