Full description
The adventure begins in Mtskheta, Georgia's former capital and home to various UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Enjoy the views from the Jvari monastery and explore fine examples of Georgian Christian architecture in the small town. Snap pictures of the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral where Christ’s robe is believed to be buried. 
 
Continue to Gori to visit the Joseph Stalin Museum. Learn about the dictator's life and view items collected from his past. Next, head 20 kilometers East to explore the ancient city of Uplistsikhe, literally translated as the "Fortress of the Lord." This city carved out of stone dates back to the 6th Century BC and is mentioned in the chronicles of the 1st Century AD. Wander through echoing halls, long meandering corridor-streets, and chambers for pagan worship and even see the remains of the oldest theatre in Georgia, all carved into the rocky plateau.

After the visit to the Stalin Museum and Uplistsikhe, have lunch at a local restaurant before returning to Tbilisi in a private car.
