Full description
Plovdiv, the second biggest city in Bulgaria, is considered to be one of the oldest settlements of Europe. With more than 7000 years of history, Plovdiv is situated on the crossroads between the West and the East amid the fertile plain of Thrace, where history and modernity go hand in hand. From the ancient times until today, culture and art thrive within a vivid medley of shapes, styles and colors. The city is home of the fabulous remains of the ancient Roman Empire – the Roman Stadium, Roman Forum and the amphitheatre. The old town of Plovdiv, situated on the three hills of ancient Trimontium, with its houses from the national revival period (18 to 19th century), is proclaimed an architectural open air museum. The tour will offer visits to some of the main landmarks of Bulgaria from Thracian times, through the Roman Empire period, the national revival till and the modern age. This tour will start from your hotel. After a 2-hour transfer, you will reach Plovdiv, where you will visit the main sites of the ancient Roman theater, the Roman stadium, the forum, the old town and have a typical Bulgarian lunch. Return to Sofia – the tour will end at your hotel.

Una visita genial

Nuestro guia-conductor Ángel fue muy amable en todo momento, hizo del viaje toda una experiencia. Plovdiv es una ciudad que merece la pena visitar, el almuerzo típico búlgaro fue sabroso, pero sin duda lo mejor fue nuestra guia, nos explico todo muy bien, educado, atento y muy buen conductor. Por poner una pega el precio nos pareció un poco elevado.

La cittadina di Plovdiv è davvero deliziosa. La guida che è venuta a prenderci in hotel, Cesare, un giovane davvero in gamba, gentilissimo, preparato, ed estremamente disponibile. In realtà avevamo prenotato, e pagato, una guida in italiano, ma Cesare, che si sforzava di dire qualche parola italiana, era una guida inglese! Inoltre è arrivato al nostro hotel con più di un'ora di ritardo, tanto che temevamo che non venisse più, visto oltretutto che eravamo stati già piantati dall'autista che avrebbe dovuto venire a prenderci in aeroporto! Il pranzo non eccezionale, oltretutto il cameriere non sapeva neanche che dovevamo andarci (!), ma quando si mangia in paesi stranieri bisogna accontentarsi del cibo che si trova. Nel complesso, comunque, il nostro giudizio sulla gita è positivo, è stata gradevole e ne è valsa la pena.
