Sighnaghi (city of love) - Bodbe monastery


Sighnaghi is located in the Kakheti region of Georgia, settled since the Paleolithic period. Romantic atmosphere of the city, lots of cozy restaurants and hotels, beautiful landscapes and seclusion of the city make it attractive for spending honeymoons, family picnics and simply relaxing holiday away from hectic megapolises. Signaghi has recently undergone a fundamental reconstruction program and has become an important center of tourism in Georgia.
The Monastery of St. Nino at Bodbe is a Georgian Orthodox monastic complex and the seat of the Bishops of Bodbe located 2 km from the town of Sighnaghi, Kakheti, Georgia.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was the best trip yet. The views of the Caucasus mountains were incredible. Bodbe and The City of Love were also incredible, and as usual Giorgi showed us a couple of lesser known spots / views on the way. We then did some wine tasting at a couple of incredible vineyards, the second was a newer, less known, family run place (another Giorgi connection) which was the best place we've visited yet - unmatched views of the Caucasus, a beautiful swimming pool, open BBQ and really friendly owners / staff.
