A really impressive piece of Roman architecture, in a surprisingly good condition. One can really feel the atmosphere.

We couple loved Plovdiv. The Old Town is big enough for walking and exploring and checking. The Ruins really surprised us. We knew it would be historical and interesting, but we felt the desire to spend more time there than planned.

The place is just at the corner of the main streets where you'd probably be roaming at the local shops and cafes. A minute later you are then at a 2000+ year old historial ruins. And to think that this place is so well maintained, you wouldn't have believe it dated such a long way back. Must visit!

When strolling in the pavements of the old city and after having seen Galleries, Museums, Churches etc. and after having reached to the top of the hill, one remains -in the first visit we have to say- in order to conclude your visit in the Old Town of Plovdiv: The Roman Theatre which lays under a rocky top with a...

The theater is located in Plovdiv's Old Town and it is a bit hard to find as it is a bit up from the church as you enter the old town from the main shopping district. There is just a small sigh that leads you to the site across from the church. You will enter between two buildings ( one... More

This is a fairly well preserved Roman Amphitheater. I was actually pretty amazed at how much leeway tourists have at the theater. You can climb up and down the stadium seating. You can even climb on top of the stage and get some good views of the city below. This is worth the few Euro entrance cost and is obviously... More

The sight is a must when you visit the Old town of Plovdiv. The stone amphitheatre benches and stairs look just great when the sun sets over the Rhodopi mountains and the last sun beams shine on it. The stage has a great acoustic, but a little more attention is needed at the back to make it perfect.

part of the theater is being reconstructed so there is some scaffolding; take a good maps cuz some of the windy narrow streets are difficult to work out; you can see all the theater without paying to go in (unless you really want to sit and take it in)
