Plovdiv – or town of the seven hills as it has been called is a heritage site and truly beautiful and ancient. Mind you it has only six hills now as one was used for construction purposes but that in no way diminishes Plovdiv`s ancient...More

This is a bit different to most old cities. Very old, good walking and a lot of variety. Rough streets, plenty of places to eat, drink enjoy.

We enjoyed walking through the Old Town, although it's hills are quite steep and would be a challenge for anyone with physical limitations. It's full of history and unique shops.
