And other places

Varzia presents Twelfth-century cave dwellings in the valley of the Mtkvari River, approximately 270 km west of the Capital of Tbilisi in the Georgian Republic. This is an outstanding monument of the Georgian plastic arts of the Middle Ages. It was built for the most part between 1156 and 1205 (during the reigns of Georg III and his daughter Thamar) as a fortress and monastery for Georgia's southwestern frontier. It consists of several dozen homes, religious buildings, and businesses that have been carved into a sheer cliff of tufa to form tiers of dwellings with interconnecting passageways. There are preserved more than 240 cave rooms out of approximately 400.
On the way to varzia you'll get a chance to visit Joseph Stalin's home-town Gori, early medieval centuries fortress Atskuri, caves of Vani and well preserved fortress of Khertvisi (IVth century B. C). Actually Varzia is one of the most popular places of interest of Georgia and have thousands of visitors every day.

A Recent Review of this tour

Koba thanks for a wonderful experience. It is rare to find a guide that is more concern with business than money and takes the time to truly show the beauty of any land. Great memories and cheers. P.S. stay out of holes that you may not be able to get down from and thanks for the blizzard.
