Plovdiv Amphitheatre

In exhilarating Plovdiv, you can find one of the most intact ancient theatres around. Marvel at 28 rows of marble seats and a stunning stage – set against a backdrop of city lights – during a trip to one of the best-placed hidden gems in Europe. The views here are astounding from the top of the monument’s steps: a tapestry of city roofs and blue skies. From this vantage point, you’ll also find an outdoor cafe, allowing you to sit and admire the breathtaking landscape at your leisure.

If you’re lucky and plan your visit right, you might even get to attend a concert at the Plovdiv Amphitheatre. This ancient structure, which can seat up to 7,000 people and was once used as a venue for gladiator fights and hunting shows, now plays host to a variety of concerts and performances today. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
