Mtskheta – the town is located right outside of the capital.
Today Mtskheta is one of the most important places for Georgians
and a popular tourist destination, part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The most important attraction of Mtskheta is Jvari Monastery from
the 6th century, located hight above the city – not only this is a wonderful
example of the early Christian Georgian architecture, but the view
from up there is pretty amazing too.

Other places to see in Mtskheta include Svetitskhoveli Cathedral,
Samtavro’s Convent, or ruins of the Bebris Tsikhe fortress.
There are even more old monasteries around the town.

Mtskheta itself is a nice place to visit and a perfect escape
from the hustle and bustle of Tbilisi.

Uplistsikhe is another impressive cave site located not too far from Tbilisi.
The oldest buildings of this ancient cave town date back to the 5th century
BC and the place was in use until the Late Middle Ages. Uplistsikhe is
a remarkable example of the influence of rock-cut cultures from Anatolia
and Iran where the pagan and Christian architecture stood next to each other.
This is also one of the oldest settlements in Georgia. The 1920 earthquake destroyed
the remnants of the town a bit more but still today it is an impressive place to visit.

The complex is divided into three parts – lower, central, and upper.
From Uplistsikhe you can also admire the beautiful panorama of the
surrounding landscape with the Kura river flowing through the area.

The duration of the excursion is 6-7 hours.

The excursion price includes:

  • English speaking guide / driver
  • Transport service
  • Water in the car


  • Organization of additional meals: lunch and dinner
