We depart for Plovdiv which is less than 2-hour drive from Sofia.

After our arrival in Plovdiv, we’ll take a look at the most iconic attractions in the city. The beautiful houses, the cobblestone streets from the Bulgarian revival ages, the antiquity sights which remind us of how important this city was in ancient times.

For lunch, we will enjoy typical Bulgarian cuisine in a local restaurant.

In Plovdiv we’ll visit:

1. The famous “Old town” – a candidate for UNESCO World Heritage Site

3. The Roman stadium which is amongst the largest and most well- preserved buildings from the time of the Ancient Rome on the Balkan peninsula. The facility, approximately 240 m (790 ft) long and 50m wide, can seat up to 30000 spectators. Today, the northern curved part of the stadium is partially restored and is one of the most recognizable landmarks of the city!
