After taking the same tour in Sofia, we decided for this format again in Plovdiv on January 7, 2014. The weather was fantastic and our guide, Mariyana, passionate and well informed. The historical center of Plovdiv is a jewel and the last time I took so many pictures was in Japan, 15 years ago. A complete surprise and most importantly, a very romantic place which really deserves a couple of days, especially up on the hill. I can’t even imagine what it must be to wake up in such a setting.
