This is one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful place in central Plovdiv. It is located in one of the seven hills so beware to wear comfortable shoes. You can stroll around and enjoy the preserved cottages and buildings that today house...More
The old town seems to meander a lot, after 2 days wandering around we still kept finding streets we'd missed. It's not that big but just full of interest. Great cafes and bars, everyone helpful, even the traffic police and parking wardens went out of...More
A must see if you are in town. Beautiful old houses big part of which are museums ad you can visit. The old roman stadium is a bonus. Take a pair of really comfortable shoes because the road is uneven.
Having not known about Plovdiv, it was a great surprise and order full treat. Cobblestones roads, no traffic, beautiful houses and great museums. Plus views from the top on the hills. Within the old city, one is not overrun with Tourists as in so many...More
We decided to go to Plovdiv when we were staying in Sofia - and I am so pleased we did! Old Town is stunning and we though it a much better place to look around then Sofia. You can easily do it all on foot...More

If traveling from Sofia to Plovdiv, you will save 50% if you order a cab from Plovdiv to come and pick you up. It cost 120 leva. If you take a Sofia cab to Plovdiv it is 200 leva. I just did this a couple weeks ago. The drive is 1.5 hours max or more if there is fog, snow, or icy conditions on the highway.
The other option is taking a bus or train but it takes longer. Kapana area is in downtown and well known place so you will have no trouble with that.
My suggestion is staying a night in Sofia ( if you have the time) so you can arrange for a cab. I can give u a number for a honest cab company. (I'm Bulgarian so i know). Cab in Plovdiv is very cheap but few speak english so be prepared to show addresses and possibly screenshots of the location on a map. I'd be haply to help with all your other questions too as BG is quite different from western europe.

It is a great idea to visit Plovdiv. The souvenir shop probably will not work, or will work till lunch. About the restaurant: almost all of the places are having a new years night working time and they work mostly till 20:00. And in the evening you can visit some concert on the square.
