Full description

Embark on a journey along Via Militaris – the old Roman Road that connected Rome with Constantinople and visit Plovdiv or Philippopolis as it was called back in the day. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and will take you to Plovdiv which is situated about two hours away from Sofia. A guided walking tour of the Old Town will give you a chance to submerge in the atmosphere of the past long gone while walking on the cobbled streets surrounded by stone walls and colourful facades. You will explore the earliest settlement on Nebet Tepe with its commanding view towards Maritza River and Rhodope Mountains, take on the stage of the Roman Theatre and get to know what Bulgarians were up to during the Revival Period in the Ethnographic Museum situated in a lavish house from the same time. Your guide will also take you past churches, small souvenir shops, along the main street of Plovdiv and the ruins of the Roman Philippopolis. A short transfer will take you to a local winery where you will learn about the way wine is made and stored and will get to try 5 different varieties before sitting down for a two course meal lunch. After lunch you will visit the biggest Thracian tomb/temple ever discovered in Southeast Europe. It is part of nearly 120 burial mounds in the region and dates from 2500 years ago. In the late afternoon it is time to head back to Sofia and and your guide will take you back to your hotel.
