You will find the Roman Amphitheater on the way up to the top of the Old City. The main road goes under it which makes it even more dramatic. I was out for dinner and managed to see traditional Bulgarian music and dance being performed in the theater as it is still being used today.

Situated in the Old Town, this place just serves as an energy accumulator. You can practically feel and touch the history. It isn't crowded and it's also very romantic so it is perfect for couples!

A roman theatre very well preserved and with an impressive view. Most of it is still intact and you call actually feel how it was to be there millenia ago.

Did u ever expect to see this type of ancient sites here? I am sure you were not. With its size and well - preserved status, this theatre is still hosting summer concerts and operas with the most magnificent view you could ever imagine. Try to picture this... the sunset in the summer with the great mountain lit in pink,... More

I really had no idea that I was going to find ancient Roman ruins during my short visit to Plovdiv. If you are anywhere near, you should definitely make the trek to see this stellar theater. The ancient marble steps are worn from centuries of sandals. The beautiful, scenic setting would make any modern developer jealous.

It is a great place to understand the history of the town and it also has a great view, a contrast of the old and modern in Plovdiv
