Itinerary

- Depart from Varna port - Drive to the Roman Baths, approximately 10 minutes driving - Visiting the Roman Baths, approximately 30 minute visit - Drive to the Archaeological museum, 10 minutes driving time - Visiting the Archaeological museum, approximately 1 hour spent here - Travelling to the Cathedral, 10 minute drive - Visiting the Cathedral, approximately 30 minutes here - Walking tour in the city center, approximately 1 hour - Travelling to Varna Port, 10 minutes driving time - Return to Varna Port Please note: The order of the itinerary may change depending on traffic

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

The tour will commence with a short scenic journey to the Roman Baths, these are situated in the central part of the city so the journey will take around 10 minutes. The Roman Baths are large semi ruined public baths from Roman times built in the 2nd century AD.  Spanning over 7,500 square feet it is said that Varna Roman Baths are Europe's largest baths after Rome's baths of Diocletian and Caracalla and those in Trier, Germany.

When the baths were built Varna was known as Odessos and people would congregate, not just for bathing but also to socialise.  The baths were in use until the 3rd century AD, but now lie in a semi ruined state and visitors can see the various rooms, from the cold bathing to the hot bathing and the sports hall.

After the guided tour of the Roman Baths the tour will continue to the Archaeological Museum, a fascinating museum, this is where the oldest gold in the world was found.  The most important monument of the Eneolithic Age is the world famous Eneolithic Necropolis, exhibited in three seperate halls of the museum.

The final visit will be to the Dormition of the Mother of God Cathedral, built in 1880 after the liberation of the Ottoman rule.  It presents a masterpiece of local religious art of the 19th century.  It is the residence of the Bishopric of Varna and Preslav and one of the symbols of Varna. 

After the visit to the Cathedral you will have a little free time to explore Varna's ancient, medieval streets before meeting back up with your guide to return back to the cruise port.
