Stunning views, good restoration

One of the best sites and most complete restoration in Plovdiv. Also excellent acoustics so therefore great place to catch a concert. Amazing views of Plovdiv visible past stage.

you can get tickets on line and for some performances you need to book ahead but i just emailed them and they replied very promptly that we could just turn up for the performance we wanted... there are cushions and its just magic to sit there under the stars with the occasional cat ambling by and bats in the moon...

We went visiting here when there was no performance going on. And just sight seeing this empty theatre is not really worth it. There is too much modern stuff to get a vibe of how it must have been in old times. And no information regarding the place. If you're walking through the old town, just peek in from above.... More

Plovdiv has deserved it's 2019 selection for the European city of culture. There is a 3d movie available to see opposite the mosque

What an amazing venue, the play was amazing and as the sun sets with the sweet sounds of music and dance you get the beautiful colours disappearing behind the set. If I ever go here again I'm going to definitely go back, absolutely loved it!

Plovdiv is probably the city in Bulgaria that has the most Roman ruins well preserved. t was a big happy surprise. This amphitheater still plays shows. You can see it very well from atop without going inside necessarily.

Enjoy the beautiful view and drink a cold beer on the terrace next door. Take lots of pics from the top. Also walk the area around, the architecture was amazing. Be prepared with comfy shoes and expect lots of walking up hill.

Found only recently it has been rebuilt in a respectful and sensitive way. It offers an evocative sight to the past.
