Full description
Meet your guide in the center of Tbilisi and travel to Jvari Monastery. Discover this 6th-century Georgian Orthodox monastery which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the surrounding views at the monastery which sits on a mountain summit at the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers, overlooking the town of Mtskheta. 

After a stop at the monastery, continue the tour by exploring the former capital of the ancient Kingdom of Iberia, Mtskheta. The town was the capital of the region from the 3rd century BC to the 5th century AD, and was the site of coronation and burial for many ancient kings of Georgia. As such, many monuments and buildings in the town are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 

See Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, which is currently the second-largest church in Georgia. Known as the burial site of Christ's mantle, Svetitskhoveli is one of the most venerated places of worship in the region.
