Mtskheta: Private Half-Day Tour

From USD 99.95

Embark on a journey through time and discover the rich cultural heritage of Georgia's first capital, Mtskheta. This private tour from Tbilisi takes you to some of the country's most significant historical sites, including UNESCO World Heritage sites, and offers a glimpse into the rich traditions and history of the Georgian people.

Your first stop will be the Jvari Monastery, a timeless masterpiece dating back to the 6th century. Perched on the confluence of the Aragvi and Kura rivers, surrounded by majestic mountains, this iconic site offers breathtaking views and a peaceful atmosphere.

Next, we will visit the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, a massive historical church located in the heart of Mtskheta. Considered one of the holiest sites in Georgia, it has been the final resting place of dozens of legendary Georgian rulers and kings and is revered by Orthodox Georgians as the soul of the Georgian nation.

After exploring the historical and spiritual centre of Mtskheta, we will venture to the Antioch Church and stroll through the charming streets of the renewed town. Take a moment to relax with a glass of wine, shop for traditional Georgian souvenirs, and admire the picturesque architecture of this historic town.

Our tour concludes with a visit to the Chronicle of Georgia, a modern monument created by Georgian architects that offers a panoramic view of the Tbilisi Sea and the city. After a journey filled with history, culture, and stunning landscapes, we can bring you to one of Tbilisi's best Georgian restaurants, where you can enjoy a delicious meal and reminisce about your unforgettable experience in Mtskheta.
