When walking through old town streets, take breaks at buildings that are there. I like how every street name and house has a tablet with an explanation who / what that is. Also in English, so huge +.
Also many houses in old time are...More
Cobbled roads throughout. A bit of an incline too. Go into the old houses especially House of Stepan hindliyan. It’s beautiful. Walk up to Nebet Hill to see views of the city below and the fortress walls. Potter through the back streets. Visit the ancient...More
Hello everyone! Plovdiv is the oldest populated city in Europe that I have ever visited, with a history of 8000-9000 years! This place immediately takes you to another atmosphere filled with an ancient history that feels at every moment Pleasant and responsive people, a rich...More
Plovdiv, in Turkish, Filibe is a very beautiful place. You live in history. History of Byzantine, Turkish and Bulgarian. Mosques and cathedrals religions lived together. We went one day and from there go to Sofija But we're going to go again.
There is plenty to see and do in the Old Town however we encountered problems with payment. Most museums and historical buildings only accept cash as do most of the shops in this area. So I was unable to purchase what I wanted as I...More
a really "must be and see" when you arein Plovdiv, but be carefully, the streets are really rough, bumpy and sometimes dangerous. You have to watch where you walk, otherwise you could be really injured...
The Old Town is the cultural and historical heart of Plovdiv. The charming cobbled streets, beautiful houses from the Bulgarian Revival period, ancient remains of the Roman period, museums, galleries and a lot of cafes and restaurants - it's a favourite spot for locals and...More
The old town of Plovdiv is nothing short of charming. You move from the flat, pedestrianised new town to the distinctly uphill and downhill of the old town with its unique shops and cobbled streets it is a pedestrian's challenge as the hills are very...More

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.
