If you never visited roman theater, I'd say go ahead. But if you seen some, you've probably seen better. I think entrance fee is to high. Better to go to the caffee on top, sit by the fence and enjoy the view than to actually...More

From what I could see, there was little remaining of the original theatre except for the seating and a few columns. I understand they do hold performances, which may well be worth the visit but the theatre alone is pretty underwhelming compared to other Roman...More

This well preserved theatre was setting up for a concert when we visited. I would love to see a performance there in such a spectacular location. There were only a couple of other tourists there and we could wander about at leisure.

5 Lev to get inside, not necessary if you want to save some money. I think it could be amazing with some shows!

Located in the Old Town of Plovdiv, this is definitely one of the must-sees. Fascinating well preserved piece of ancient history, floating over the modern city. Entrance fee is 5 BGN, but even better way to experience it is to visit some of the concerts...More

We had a look and seen the 3D short film it was very interesting and informative, there is more of the ruins to be seen in the old town, definitely would recommend this to anyone visiting Plovdiv

What an amazing surprise this place is. Nestled in the middle of the hustle of Plovdiv it just appears out of nowhere and it is a challenge to see how it fits in with the rest of the city. It costs 5 lev to enter...More

Well preserved and maintained, perhaps because it is presently used for performances. Take a walk out of the theatre towards the new town and see the ruins to visualise the true extent of this grand architecture!

I haven't seen a ramp for wheelchairs and in general the access to the place to start with will be very tricky - the old town is mostly laid with cobble stones and on foot it can be tricky, let alone with a helping vehicle... More
