At Nessebar, see how traces of numerous civilizations have merged into a distinctive cultural whole over 3,000 years of history. This World Heritage site is also called the "pearl of the Black Sea" and Bulgaria's Dubrovnik. Explore the ancient city's remains, which date mostly from the Hellenistic period. Highlights include the acropolis, a temple of Apollo, an agora, and a wall from the Thracian fortifications. Enter one of the many churches to discover examples of ornamental ceramics--the painted decorations characteristic of the Byzantine period. Walk among 19th-century wooden houses, typical of the Black Sea's architecture of the period.

  • From the Festa Panaroma we were only a 15 min walk to the old town. I would recommend walking around the Old Town by day and in the evening. Museum well worth a visit too.

  • Lovely old town spoiled by tacky tourist shops. The old buildings hidden away by them. None of the buildings were open. Lovely restaurant overlooking the sea.

  • Chose this restaurant based on rating but subsequently have discovered that many scores are for the town Old Nessebar rather than the restaurant. The setting of the seaside terrace is lovely but there the pleasure ends. The food is at best mediocre, overpriced and the portions are small and the service is erratic. I would not recommend it.
  • Lovely old town, enjoyed the day. Good shopping and food & drink. The only down side was a cheating taxi driver on the way home, beware the price they tell you is not the price they may charge.
