Itinerary

- Depart from Nessebur port - Visit the Church of Christ Pantocrater (exterior viewing) - Explore the Church of St Stephen (visit of approximately 20 minutes) - Walk beside the Church of St John the Baptist - Visit the Church of the Holy Saviour (Sveti Spas) for approximately 15 minutes - Final stop at Nessebar's Archaeological Musem (visit of approximately 40 minutes) - Return to Nessebar port

You will be met at the port by your Cruising Excursions representative ready to commence your walking tour of Nessebar.

From the port your professional English speaking guide will accompany you through the fortified walls, the entrance to Old Nessebur, opening up into a maze of quaint cobbled streets.  As we walk through the old town your guide will be pointing out the most important buildings which prompted UNESCO to include the town in its list of World Heritage Sites in 1983.

The guide will take you to the following:

The Church of Christ Pantocrator: This 13th–Century church which is an art gallery today and it is famous for its lavish exterior.

Sveti Stefan (The Church of St. Stephen): Of probable 11th Century construction, this former Orthodox Church in Nessebar has been turned into a museum.

The Church of St John Aliturgetos: The ruins of the 14th Century was not consecrated, hence the name - 'aliturgetos' is the Greek for 'not consecrated. Legend says that one of the builders fell down and was killed and, subsequently, the church canon would not allow a place where a man had been killed to be used for worship (though according to records some services were held here).

The Church of St John the Baptist: A domed cruciform church, built of undressed stone and 12 metres long by 10 metres wide, the Church of St John is one of the best preserved churches in Nessebar and home to frescoes from later periods.

Sveti Spas, or The Church of the Holy Saviour: Though small, this 17th-Century church is notable for its early 17th century wall paintings representing scenes from the Life of Christ and the Holy Virgin, with a painting of the Virgin Platytera in the apse.

Your final stop will be Nessebar's Archaeological Museum, which has four exhibition halls chronologically following the development of the town through the historical periods. The tour will conclude with a walk back through the streets to the cruise port.

Please note: Unfortunately, due to the cobbled streets, this tour is not recommended for people who have difficulty walking or for those using a wheelchair.
