Best of Bulgaria

Begin your tour in Sofia, where you’ll take in the spectacular sights of the Bulgarian capital while strolling along its famous yellow cobblestoned streets. The next day, tour Boyana Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the 11th century, and the fantastic Rila Monastery, a Bulgarian arts and culture repository since the Middle Ages.

Explore Samovodene Street in Veliko Tarnovo, a vibrant shopping destination for traditional arts and crafts. Savor a cup of Turkish coffee brewed over hot sand, just as it was prepared hundreds of years ago. A guided walking tour of Arbanassi provides an exclusive view of daily life during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Next, tour three great UNESCO World Heritage outdoor sites: the Ivanovo Churches, the Sveshtari Thracian Tomb, and the ancient Madara Horseman, a famous Bulgaria symbol.

Your adventure continues in Varna, where you’ll view the world’s most ancient gold treasure. Relax on the beach, or explore the exquisite Balchik Palace and the caves of the Aladzha Monastery.

On the peninsula of Nessebar, you’ll find a gorgeous town with a history spanning thousands of years, beautiful old cobblestoned streets, and delightful restaurants with sea views. In Kazanlak, the center of the famous rose harvest, visit the Hellenistic Thracian Tomb.

Wind down your epic tour in Plovdiv, a modern urban center with a lovely Old Town and deep ties to the past. Visit Bachkovo Monastery and Asenovgrad Fortress before making your way to ancient Starosel, Bulgaria’s largest Thracian complex.
