città fantastica

la città è molto bella e io e mio marito abbiamo avuto la fortuna di essere gli unici due partecipanti al tour; peccato però che la guida, un ragazzo giovane, non abbia messo molta "passione" durante la visita delle attrazioni della città, pur rispettando il programma previsto.

The driver was careful and friendly, however, I was expecting a more in-depth tour in Plovdiv.

I recommend it to young, middle age and older people.
