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.
