Plovdiv isn’t just the oldest city in Bulgaria… it’s one of the oldest cities in the world. Historians agree that this scenic valley in the south of Bulgaria has been inhabited for more than 5,000 years – but some will tell you that Plovdiv’s history goes back further still, for as much as 8,000 years of continuous habitation! So what can you expect on a Plovdiv day excursion or tour?

During this day tour to Plovdiv we will visit the Bachkovo monastery, the Asen’s fortress and the must seen places in Plovdiv – the Old town from 19th century; the Ethnographic museum; Balabanov house; the Ancient theater of Philipopolis; the Ancient stadium of Philipopolis, The St St Constantin and Elena church, The Djumaya mosque and square, The building of the Regional Historical museum, the Main walking street, “The Trap” neighborhood; Nebet tepe and more.
