Make your way to a central location by the Alexander Nevsky cathedral, then meet a guide and group for the two-hour trip to Plovdiv, the second-largest city in Bulgaria.
Upon arrival in Plovdiv, get your bearings on a 2- to 3-hour guided walking tour that explores the history and culture of the city, which was founded 8,000 years ago. You’ll see traces of the successive Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Bulgarian cultures, and learn about the distinctive architecture of the Old Town.
Throughout the tour, the guide will share stories and insights about Bulgarian culture and history, while leading the way down the cobblestone streets that wind through the heart of the city.
This tour includes admission to the Ethnographic Museum, which explores Bulgarian folk culture, costumes, and lifestyles, as well as the Plovdiv Roman Theatre, among the best-preserved ancient theaters in the world. Following your time in Plovdiv begin the return trip to Sofia, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.
