    Sofia is one of the most ancient settlements in Europe; in fact, there’s evidence that people have been living there for up to 7000 years. Sofia’s past has been rocky: it has known times of peace and prosperity, but it has also been witness to historical cataclysms. If history and culture are your main reasons for traveling, check out our entire range of Bulgarian Sightseeing tours. For something more specific, take a look at our Discover Sofia Walking Tour.

    Join Excedo Travel for a private Sofia walking tour dedicated to the city’s Roman Past. Learn about the origins of Sofia, why the Romans called it Serdica, and discover its hidden archaeological gems. Take a journey back in time with us and follow Sofia’s turbulent history — a history that shaped it into one of the most significant commercial centers of the Roman Empire. Let us show you why Roman Emperor Constantine the Great so famously said “Serdica is my Rome”. For more information about this Sofia tour, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
