So ready for your Georgian holiday? Wonderful. Now let’s give you the highlights so you can make the best of your visit here!

First things first…

Tbilisi is vibrant and happening

Tbilisi is the melting point of religions and culture, the old and new. This is where the hanging balconies in the Old Tbilisi district rub shoulders with the Persian-style sulfur baths and futuristic glass structures welcome a new era. It is a city that inspires and impresses. It is surrounded by mountains, making it a great starting point for your outdoor adventures. Explore this city full of Georgian and Armenian churches, mosques and synagogues and even the ruins of the most northern Zoroastrian fire temple. The nightlife is amazing, so is the shopping and dining. In short, it has a bit of everything.

Experience adrenaline rush at Gergeti

Gergeti is another world- in the sense, you get the feeling of being completely in the outdoors, amidst gurgling streams and mountains. It gives you the feeling of timelessness, peace and harmony. The scenery here will leave you speechless. If you find yourself here, make sure you climb up to the Trinity Church. The walk will take a few hours – but the breathtaking view at the top will be worth it or you can take a jeep ride.

Ski in Gudauri

On the way to Kazbegi (now Stepansminda) you will arrive at the town of Gudauri surrounded by snow-clad mountains. This place comes alive with skiers in winter (we suggest you book in advance) and chairlifts hum with activity right through the day! Snow is soft and powdery and is paradise for skiers. A little further away, is the Friendship Monument – a beautiful coloured circular wall overlooking green valleys.

The Friendship Monument is one of the most photographed site in Georgia.

Sip wine in Khaketi

Whether you are a wine lover or not, sipping divine wine in the Khaketi region of Georgia will leave you wanting more. Sipping divine wine. In fact there are several wine tasting tours (and quite popular, we assure you) that takes you on a tasting tour where in you can taste a few hundred varieties! After you have had your wine, relax in Sighnaghi, a city of love and vineyards. With winding, cobbled streets, old fortification walls and towers it creates a distinct Mediterranean feel – and an incredibly romantic atmosphere along it.

Explore caves, monasteries and churches

Georgia is home to some of the most unusual cave cities in Europe, of which Uplitstsikhe is the most ancient. Others include Davit Gareja, a vast monastic complex carved into the rock of Mount Gareja, and Vardzia, a spectacular underground city that once housed 2,000 monks. Georgia also has a fair sprinkling of churches and monasteries including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Mtskheta’s Svetitskhoveli Cathedral or Kutaisi’s Bagrati Cathedral, or the dramatic hill top position of the church in Kazbegi, Georgia’s churches or forts never fail to paint a pretty picture.
Khinkali is Georgia most favourite all-year-round dish. These succulent dumplings come filled with minced meats or cheese or shrimps and taste delicious.
