Tour in Vardzia and Rabati (1 Day)
Vardzia is the third caves complex you can find in Georgia and
this one is probably the most impressive one.
The good news is you can also go there as a day trip from Tbilisi.
The works on the cave town started at the end of the 12th century.
During the Mongol invasions in the Middle Ages up to 60 thousand
people could find shelter in the caves of Vardzia.
The site is really huge and impressive – the caves are cut in a steep Erusheti
Mountain and the whole cave town stretches for around half a kilometer and has up to nineteen tiers.
Visitors can see around 300 chambers as well as the Church of
the Dormition with the 12th-century mural paintings.
You need some 2-3 hours for visiting Vardzia.
Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes as some of the passages are steep and narrow.
Not far from Vardzia you can visit Akhaltsikhe town with a beautifully renovated Rabati
castle (originally from the 9th century). The city itself is pleasant for a stroll too and
has more interesting sights (like the Turkish baths) but all
of them are in the shadow of a marvelous Rabati castle.
