We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and start our tour by visiting Borjomi National Park, where we will try mineral water “Borjomi” with unique healing qualities and taste, Borjomi water won its first gold medal in 1907 in Belgium. The water has been bottled since 1896. We continue our way to Vardzia cave town (12th century). Then we visit Khertvisi Fortress (10th century) before moving to the magnificent Vardzia. Vardzia is one of the highlights of the trip and stretches over half a kilometer along the river Mtkvari, with 19 tires. There used to be about 3000 caves here, but now there are just over 500. It has a church hewn out of rock with amazing 12th-century frescoes. The Complex also includes living quarters, small hall-type churches, and refectories, wine cellar, etc. Continue towards the town of Akhaltsikhe (New Fortress) that always has had strategic importance. That’s why the fortress Rabat has been built here in IX century, so it’s been called the fortress inside the fortress. It was guarding Georgia for centuries, but there were periods when enemies took over. The fortress keeps traces of both times, giving us an unforgettable impression. The fortress has been renovated several years ago. During the day you will enjoy with local food and vine in local restaurant. We will be back in Tbilisi at late evening.
