Let’s start with a sightseeing tour of old Tbilisi , from where it all started — from the area of Tiflis sulfur baths-“where the water boils without fire”, where the spirit of the past centuries is still felt, when in these places the caravans of camels and horses, inspired by incredible bales, moved.
Metekhi temple-Stretching over the very Kura, the temple silently looks at the city, at modern people and cherishes somewhere in its depth all those memories and pictures from the past that he had to go through . From here you can see an amazing panorama of old Tbilisi.
The ascent of the cable car to Narikala Fortress — the main and oldest fortification of the city-is a great place for memorable photos.
An unusual gorge with a waterfall-in the heart of the capital!
Sioni – Church of the assumption of the blessed virgin Mary, named after mount Zion — among the shrines-the cross of St. Nino! You will feel the miraculous atmosphere of this great temple.
We go to the first acquaintance with fantastic Georgian cuisine. Lunch. Just listen to chakapuli, chkmeruli, khachapuri…that’s real music taste.
Walk to the” cotton row ” — the cultural and entertainment center of The city
The glass bridge of the world is a pedestrian bridge, which, though, has changed the usual picture of the old city with its unusual appearance and live lighting, but it is beautiful and looks like some light fantastic creature that flew in and is about to fly away!

A show at the stone — Tower-watch – Theatre of Rezo Gabriadze… HE set the tower as a performance…) Georgian Hello to the Eiffel and Pisa towers.

Mtskheta city was founded in the 5th century BC and is not only the cradle of ancient architecture, but also the source of the spiritual roots of our country. We are waiting for a fascinating walk in small cobbled streets, which sell hops-suneli (seasonings), churchkhela, dried figs and more. And the aroma of freshly brewed coffee on the sand will perfectly complement our route. Then we find ourselves in one of the oldest temples of Svetitskhoveli, where is one of the most important relics of the spiritual world — the Chiton of Jesus Christ. It is here that was taken hristiansvo and the beginning of a new era. Ancient frescos hide many mysterious symbols and signs, about which we will know.
After that, we will climb up, offering a beautiful view of the city and the confluence of the Kura and Aragvi rivers. It is seen Lermontov, when he wrote his poem Mtsyri. Under the noise of the wind we will go to the temple Jvari and touch his silent but warm walls.
You will return to Tbilisi to continue to experience Georgia and enjoy every minute of your stay in this country.
