The Jvari Monastery in Mtskheta, the Uplistsikhe cave town and the city of Gori... Explore these three Georgian landmarks in one day with this complete tour from Tbilisi.
Mtskheta, Uplistsikhe & Gori Day Trip
After meeting at the Avlabari metro station in Tbilisi at 8:30 am, we'll set off at 9 am to some of Georgia's most important places of interest: Uplistsikhe, Gori and Metskheta.
The first stop on our tour will be Uplistsikhe, meaning "the lord's fortress", where we'll discover its incredible rocky landscapes. When we arrive, we'll see the nearly 500 caves which date from the Iron Age to the late Middle Ages. Did you know that Uplistsikhe is also known as the Georgian Cappadocia? It'll take your breath away! At 1 pm, you'll have free time to have lunch.
In the afternoon after eating, we'll head to Gori, a city with legendary history known for being the birthplace of Stalin. You'll have time to explore the city's historic centre and visit the Gori Fortress or the Stalin Museum, an exhibition dedicated to the Soviet leader. This medieval citadel has archaeological evidence dating it to several centuries BC!
Later, we'll make our way to the Jvari Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers unparalleled panoramic views over Mtskheta, the former capital of Georgia. We'll hear all about the history of the monastery, said to be the place where Christianity was first brought to the country. Finally, we'll visit the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, an impressive Orthodox church in Mtskheta and the final resting place of many of Georgia's monarchs.
At the end of the trip we'll take you back to Tbilisi, arriving around 7 pm.
