With the metro you litterally can take almost everywhere in town. So no need for an expensive taxi from the airport

used it just once, but punctual, lacks some English speaking workers and announcing the station names, but goes to all the right places.

Cheap and a good amount of English signs and announcements. Took longer from the airport to the centre than anticipated as the trains aren’t as frequent as you would expect. Easy to buy tickets from the machines with notes and coins.

Hygienic if slower than London tube. Would recommend as way to get into the city, and has a sign about the history of Sofia.

The like I used was still new, very clean and affordable. It was on time, not full and I recommend it highly since traffic and parking downtown can be tough.

I would take the metro to Serdika Station and get off there. It's not a bad walk on Vitosha Boulevard, and this will expose you to one of the best walking streets in the city, if not the best! You only need one ticket, so... More
