It is protected old town that i offer everyone to see. The roads, streets, houses etc everywhere is protected, so that you can feel yourself in ancient times. It is very hard to explain but it is a must see place...

Great city to explore with just a backpack and a camera. Really good price/quality ratio, even the monument's fee is low so you can go wild and visit as much as possible.

A step back into old times, very interesting architecture but beware the large cobbled streets, need to be stable on your feet! Great views across Plovdiv from the top of the old town.

Loved walking around the Old Town. Lots of old structures to see, local places to eat, and souvenir shops. It is a lot of up hill walking though, so wear comfortable shoes & clothing! & make sure to bring a camera! So much to see, so leave plenty of time in your schedule.
