History in the middle of the city

Looks great Dislikes: You have to pay to get inside, you get to see better Roman theatre as you wander around Greece, Turkey and off course Italy.

The theater is very nice, but unfortunatly when we were there we couldn't get in because they were rebuilding bits.. But it is a very nice building and I would love to go back again to see it without work going on in it! (I was there in 2013!)

I joined a free city tour group and learned a little more of this fabulous theatre uncovered in modern times. then I sat at a cafe overlooking the theatre as the sunset and lights came on. what a memorable sight!

Went near to closing time so there weren't too many people around. Everything has been preserved decently and the views from the top are great. Entrance was very cheap. There's a cafe just next to the entrance which is great for some down-time.

Sitting in the old Town, Yes you have an outside view of most of the site. Some description or history of the place would be a plus. It is a small place, with sadly very little left compare to many other Roman's ruins around the world. Have a look!

I don't like heights so suffered from vertigo - not the fault of the place itself of course. Couldn't see much information about it to add to the interest

When you walk up the old town with the quaint shops, cobbled streets and bars, you come to the top and see this fantastic Roman Theatre. Take your camera. Nothing to dislike. Do not try it in high heels!!!

Nice place to visit, walk around, meditate and rest. It is an inspiring architecture that invites to meditate. Beware during winter time is really freezing.

This is one of the most famous landmarks of Plovdiv, and it's quite photogenic, but there's not a lot to see, since it's a ruin and not all of it is left. If you want to take photos of it, by all means pay to go inside the gates, but if not, you can see almost all of it through... More

Moving along the fast 4-lane autoroute that connects Sofia and its sister city Plovdiv across the marvellous Plain of Thrace, i was awestruck by the landscape of heath land and low bare hills and remarked to my femme how indistinguished and remarkably empty it seemed. Anywhere in Western Europe, a similar ribbon of highway would be a development magnet, studded... More
