It is unbeleivable, no roof, no chairs and only half theater!! Everything was falling apart some stairs were even missing. How can you play football here,also no wheelchair facilities. Stay away.

I never knew Plovdiv had so many Roman rooms. This theatre is the most impressive. You can walk down the stairs and up on the stage if you want.

Visited Plovdiv for a day. Interesting architecture in the old town. The best part was finding the Roman Theatre. Very impressive. You can even get good photos from outside too. It was certainly a step back through time.

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
