Back to the Roman times

Plovdiv is one of the most appealing cities in Bulgaria and the Balkans with its first foundations laid here between 6-8000 years ago thus making it older than Rome or even Beijing. Plovdiv is a great combination of real historical and archaeological treasures with the liveliness of a modern city and great cultural and night life. The most visited and admired is the hilly Old Town, built on three hills called "tepeta". The maze of cobbled streets which meander the area and contain the cuddled up revival houses with their colorful facades and ornate decoration don't fail to impress and take you back in time.

A Recent Review of this tour

Pavlina impressed me tremendously on this tour. She presented the 8000+ year history of Plovdiv effortlessly, weaving it all together as we walked through the main square and traveled down the cobblestone streets. Everyone needs to see this city to appreciate how much history this region has, and I would recommend Pavlina to anyone interested. Her choice of restaurant for a traditional Bulgarian meal exceeded my expectations as well. A very memorable time I won't forget.
