Day 3:Tbilisi

Celebrating Tbilisoba!

Sightseeing tour around Tbilisi:

  • Start the tour in Old Town at the 13th century Metekhi church. The viewing platform in front of the church offers, probably, the most scenic views of the Old Tbilisi.
  • Narikala Fortress - the most famous and ancient monument of Tbilisi antiquity, the locals call her "Soul of the City." The whole city is in front of it at a glance. The fortress is situated on Sololpakski ridge, climb is high enough, but even older people who climbe there to pray at the holy place, say they do not feel fatigue.
  • Then we will visit important historical part of the city- Abanotubani district,, where the well-known Sulfur Baths are located. It is here where the story of construction of Tbilisi begins, because "tbili" in Georgian means "warm". When king Gorgasali discovered these springs he gave an order to build the city here. In olden times magical healing properties were attributed to these springs, but now everyone knows the profits of Sulfur Baths.
  • Walk along the Shardeni street. Its restoration was begun several years ago and the street was supposed to be the town of masters like Montmartre (Paris), but now it is rather the Champs Elysees with numerous restaurants and cafes, boutiques and a few salons.
  • Walk over the Bridge of Peace – it is a foot-bridge over the river Mtkvari. The bridge is beautiful during both the day and night hours, because it has a very special interactive display system. The Bridge of Peace of Tbilisi is in the list of the great bridges in the world.
