What awaits you
A city at the crossroads of cultures To understand the “Tbilisi phenomenon”, you will look at the city as a patchwork quilt woven from many cultural centers. You will learn about the peoples who settled in the capital, forming its appearance and character, about the peaceful coexistence of different religions. Speaking of the latter, let's look at the synagogue, the Armenian church and the only mosque where Sunnis and Shiites pray together
A walk through the main places and a journey through the ages Archaeologists have calculated that these places were inhabited 5-6 thousand years ago, and already in the 3rd-2nd centuries BC Tbilisi had trade relations with Parthia, Bosphorus and Rome. I will talk about those times and about the outstanding Georgian rulers, about the rich Tiflis of the 19th century and about our days, when ultra-modern buildings appear in the capital, like a symbolic Bridge of Peace … And the background for the stories will be several iconic parts of the city
- Rustaveli Avenue and Sololaki District: from Freedom Square you will walk along the main artery of the city past shady plane trees and elegant buildings, and I will tell you about the most interesting of them. Then we will get lost in the streets of Sololaki - an area that was considered elite in Tbilisi in the 19th century. You will see the remnants of the former luxury - the houses of Mantashev, the Seilanovs and other rich people of that time, hear about the fate of Sololaki, look into the most beautiful ceremonial and contrasting courtyards.
- Sulfur Baths District, where you will admire Tbilisi from a postcard - with lacy balconies and cobbled streets, and I will reveal the legend about the founding of the city. Nearby you will find the Sioni Cathedral, where the cross of St. Nino, and the bright Leselidze street. And, of course, you will admire our hilly city from above - for this we will "take off" by cable car to the Narikala fortress.
As a result, in 2.5 hours you will see Tbilisi as the indigenous people of Tbilisi see it, and its history, architecture and everyday life of its inhabitants will form a clear and vivid picture for you.
The ticket for the cable car is not included in the price (2.5 GEL).
The beginning of the excursion in the area of Freedom Square. You will find out the exact meeting point immediately after booking.
