Take this shore tour from Varna port and visit one of the oldest towns of Europe, Nessebar with its unique old town with several samples of rare architecture. Browse the small cobblestone streets and discover colorful cafes and charming craft and art shops, downtown and in waterfront areas

This World Heritage boasts one of the most diverse cultural legacies in all the Balkans. The town is a treasury of Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Bulgarian architecture. View the antiquities in the Archeological Museum and visit Nessebar's most significant sites on a guided walking tour. Lunch features Bulgarian cuisine and folk entertainment.

The old town of Nessebar is a small piece of land embraced by the sea, tied with a narrow rope-like neck to the quay of the continent. The time and waves were merciful and have left this marvelous creation of the nature, together with the ruins of the architectural inheritance under UNESCO protection.

The tour commences with an informative walk around Nessebar’s charming Old Town. Founded by Thracian Greeks and named Messambria about 9000 years ago, Nessebar is one of the oldest towns in Europe. Greeks, Romans, Slavs, Byzantines and medieval Bulgarians all left their marks, most often in the form of churches. Visit several area landmarks, including St. Stefan, St. Ioan Aliturgetos, Christ Pantocrator and the famous triple nave, un-vaulted basilica of St. Sophia. Beautiful façades lead to equally impressive interiors, often painted with striking murals. The town offers a maze of narrow and winding cobblestone streets, and graceful, two-storey timbered houses that are brightly-adorned with flowers. Colorful cafés, restaurants, and charming art and crafts shops dot the downtown and waterfront areas.
