You will visit sites such as the Cathedral, the Basilica, the Presidency, the Rotunda, the Roman heritage, and more. They will also tell you about the history of the sites, as well as about the overall history of Sofia and Bulgaria. While you enjoy the sightseeing tour, your guide will also take you to some "hidden" places, which you would have difficulty finding on your own.
