You can make an exciting trip around Georgia in eight days. This hospitable and sunny country is created for them, who are in love with nature, sun, wine, ancient culture and Georgian cuisine.
After the meeting at the airport and accommodation at the hotel we’ll take you to a short excursion through evening Tbilisi. Full immersion into the fabulous atmosphere of a warm city will be held the next day immediately after breakfast. We’ll get acquainted with the statue of Mother Georgia, that protects the capital, and with the history of the city. Cable car will take us straight to the Sololaki ridge, where you can enjoy a fascinating view of Tbilisi. From there we will walk down to the sulfur baths and learn the story of the birth and secrets of the city. We will see the ancient and magnificent temples and Georgian «Pisa» tower, which is a part of Rezo Gabriadze’s puppet theater. All these sights and recalcitrant Kura river are peacefully neighboring each other. We’ll definitely visit the most cheerful and incendiary area of Shardeni, where the night life of the city is concentrated. During the day the night life hides behind the signboards of pretty cafes and hookahs. Then we’ll show you a street with excellent wine, cheese and souvenir shops, and say goodbye till the next day.
In the morning we’ll go to the ancient capital and spiritual center of Georgia, city called Mtskheta. First we’ll go up to Jvari (the temple of the Cross), where Saint equal-to-the-apostles Nina established one of the three crosses. There was a temple built over the cross in the VI-VII centuries, and it has never been destroyed. After Jvari we will go down to the first Christian church in Georgia – Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, which stores many stories, the chiton of Jesus Christ, a piece of the Holy Cross and the holy relics. After lunch we will go to Stalin’s homeland in Gori, and from there to Kutaisi where we will walk above the river Rioni along the wooden pedestrian bridge and visit the sculpted boy who meets the guests of the city. Then we’ll take off by cable car to Besarion Gabashvili park and walk through the park to the temple of Bagrat.
New day means a new city. We’ll travel to Batumi which arranges you with cozy little streets of the old town, statues of Ali and Nino, who are eternally in love, the real Italian square of Piazza and boundless sea. Batumi is perfectly located on the Black Sea coast: the most beautiful and interesting places, museums and restaurants that are always open for guests. You will have a whole day to see everything.
We will be there and help you to spend this time the way you want: walk around the huge botanical garden, tasting Chacha and Chacha cocktails in the most unusual bar of the city or tasting the best khachapuri «boats» in the most famous home café of the city. Maybe you’d like to to study the movement of the moon and time by astronomical clock? Or just walk along the seaside boulevard and then go to dinner in the Alphabet Tower, where you’ll enjoy a stunning view of the city and an excellent buyabes soup? The choice is yours!
On the way to Tbilisi we will visit Imereti once again. This time we’ll explore caves, where according to legend Prometheus gave people fire, for which he was doomed to long torment. You’ll see how the ancient stalactites and stalagmites are intertwined in an unusual pattern and modern lighting creates fanciful shadows. The cave is one of the largest in the world and makes an indelible impression. Then we will definitely go to the park Sataplia, where besides the beautiful nature, you can also find traces of dinosaurs. And then we will return to Tbilisi.
