Plovdiv's Old Town is worth visiting because of its central location and its connection to many stores and eateries. In Old Town you will find plenty cafe's and pubs. This place is alive and well past midnight but not noisey like a metropolis.
Have brought many friends up to it and the open air theatre. Cobblestone street and such side streets at that leads one to believe that the movie industry missed this place along the way....The Russian Restaurant is superb and the hotels take one back to...More
Lovely old town with buildings/structures dating from Roman times to the present day. There are many beautiful buildings from the 19th Century Bulgarian revival period. Winding cobbled streets (some in need of repair) meander through this enchanting district.

If traveling from Sofia to Plovdiv, you will save 50% if you order a cab from Plovdiv to come and pick you up. It cost 120 leva. If you take a Sofia cab to Plovdiv it is 200 leva. I just did this a couple weeks ago. The drive is 1.5 hours max or more if there is fog, snow, or icy conditions on the highway.
The other option is taking a bus or train but it takes longer. Kapana area is in downtown and well known place so you will have no trouble with that.
My suggestion is staying a night in Sofia ( if you have the time) so you can arrange for a cab. I can give u a number for a honest cab company. (I'm Bulgarian so i know). Cab in Plovdiv is very cheap but few speak english so be prepared to show addresses and possibly screenshots of the location on a map. I'd be haply to help with all your other questions too as BG is quite different from western europe.

It is a great idea to visit Plovdiv. The souvenir shop probably will not work, or will work till lunch. About the restaurant: almost all of the places are having a new years night working time and they work mostly till 20:00. And in the evening you can visit some concert on the square.
