City tour of Plovdiv

Plovdiv is the second-largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia. It is a picturesque town, with many parks and gardens, museums and archaeological monuments. Plovdiv’s appeal derives first from its lovely old town, largely restored to its mid-19th-century appearance and full of winding cobblestone streets. It is an imposing open-air museum situated on the three hills of the ancient Trimontium. The Old Town is literally packed with atmospheric house-museums and art galleries and, unlike many other cities with ‘old towns’, has eminent artists still living and working within its tranquil confines. One of the most remarkable sights, the Ancient Theatre (a well-preserved Roman theatre), is located there and is stilled used for open-air performances.

The recently discovered Bishop’s Basilica of Philippopolis is unique in scale, architectural design and decoration and is one of the most representative early-Christian sites. It provides priceless information about the history of early Christianity and the formation and development of Christian art on the Balkans and in Europe. Its universal historical, archaeological, artistic, scientific and social value is undeniable. It is one of the largest cultural and historical projects in our democratic history and combines the ancient mosaics and artifacts with interactive modules, 3D visualizations and augmented reality in an unprecedented way in Bulgaria.

Plovdiv was European Capital of Culture for the year 2019.

The price includes a walking tour of the city with English-speaking guide, a visit of the Ethnographic Museum and the Bishop’s Basilica.

Note: A minimum number of 6 participants is required to organize the tour.
