Strolling through Nessebar is one of the most culturally enriching experiences in Bulgaria. This picture-postcard peninsula, known as the ‘Pearl of the Black Sea', is slightly larger than the Vatican City – but has far more churches. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
First up is the famous Hanska Shatra – Khan's Tent – to take in the panoramic views of the coast. Then, in Nessebar, start off with a guided walking tour of the old town. Crammed into a narrow peninsula jutting out into the Black Sea, it boasts such a wealth of history that it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Winding alleys fringed with old timber homes lead you to more than a dozen historic churches dating back as far as Byzantine times in the fifth century. You'll get to enjoy a local treat in a selected restaurant and have free time to explore the town on your own. Few places so small have so much to offer.
