I have visited this place now twice in the last few years. There is a great amount of history that has been dug up in this town and the Theater is one of the best examples.

The old town area if Plovdiv is enchanting and enticing. Walking up n down the cobbled alleys we found our way to the Roman amphitheatre and it certainly offered an amazing sight. Was amazing to see a motorway pass right below the amphitheatre deck.

After a days touring, it was lovely to walk down the street to the Roman Theatre and sit and have a cold beer and view history at the same time.

Well preserves, nicely presented and good chance for photo opps. however not much time is needed here. Look out for the lion heads on each aisle, they are all individual.
