kazbegi tour - 3 days in Georgia
Day 1: Airport Transfer – Old Tbilisi Tour
Arrive at Tbilisi International Airport where your tour guide will meet you at the gate and transfer to the hotel. Once you are all settled and feeling energetic again, we can start an Old Tbilisi Tour from the center of the city. During our tour, we will see many places that withstood enemy invasions for centuries and still are standing tall. You will take a cable cart to 4th-century Narikala fortress, from where u can see the central part of the city like the palm of your hand. We will see a Waterfall, located in Bath district – a place where hot mineral waters flow from the ground and a place where first inhabitants settled.
Also, we will clearly see the diversity that Tbilisi carried during the centuries, in this city Christian Church, Synagogue and Mosque are standing together side by side. You can compare old to the new architecture and feel the rich history in the city streets. In short, during your 3-5 hour Tbilisi tour you won’t find yourself bored, even for a few minutes.
In the end, our transportation can take you back, or you can simply walk narrow streets to the Hotel since our accommodations are located within the walking distance from the heart of Old Tbilisi.
Day 2: Tbilisi – Ananuri – Gudauri – Kazbegi (Stepantsminda) – Tbilisi
In the morning meet with your local guide at the hotel lobby and on this day you will visit the Great Caucasian Mountains, Kazbegi region. Before we get to village Stepantsminda (our final destination), there wii be few stops on the way. The road we will be taking there is called Georgian Military Road and the highest point here is almost 2,400 meters above the ground.
First, we’ll see Jinvali Water Reservoir, take few pictures and then continue towards to 17th-century Ananuri Complex, however, the oldest building here is from the 14th century. Shortly after Ananuri, the road will start going up through the mountains and we will keep driving at a higher altitude until we get to the Gudauri ski resort. During the winter, this place is visited by a lot of people, since there are perfect pathways for snowboarding and skiing.
Eventually, we will get to the village Stepantsminda and will drive up to a mountain to see 14th-century Gergeti Trinity. This place is a highlight of the day, and at this point, you will be extremely happy that you have chosen Georgia as your travel destination. After Gergeti, we can visit the newly built Dariali Monastery (optional, depends on the time), which is located right at the Georgian – Russian border.
