Fly to Sofia with Alitalia and you’ll discover one of those cities where East meets West in perfect harmony. Boasting a history of over 2,500 years, this is a town where every street contains architectural gems, friendly people and cultural delights. Travel to Sofia and you’ll discover a city that has only recently become aware of its own attractions and still seems surprised by how easily visitors fall in love with its streets.
Flying to Sofia will give you the opportunity to just wander aimlessly along the yellow-paved city center streets, while taking in the café culture and ambiance. However, visiting the breathtaking Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the neo-Byzantine Mineral Baths is a must. There are also numerous beautiful churches and museums dotted throughout the region. The National Palace of Culture and its vast range of exhibition halls will also show you something of Sofia’s history and Bulgarian culture.
For tranquility, tickets to Sofia in August might be ideal because many locals are away on holiday. For the weather, travel to Sofia in summer and you’ll find Mediterranean temperatures. Winters can be cold though, so pack warm clothes if you’re visiting then.
