Your exploration of Tbilisi begins at Liberty Square. After just a few moments, you’ll step into the historical district of Sololaki, favoured by the great and the rich of Tbilisi in the 19th century. As we admire the decadent glory of this part of the city, you’ll definitely be tempted by the smell of freshly-baked bread from the local bakeries nearby, and you’ll see street vendors happily setting up impromptu sidewalk markets in order to sell their seasonal produce.
Prepare for some amazing views of Tbilisi as we take the Betlemi steps to the clifftop. From the quiet garden of this old quarter, you’ll be able to see the city’s top landmarks. Here we enjoy a delicious khachapuri, which literally means cheese and bread, and a glass of local wine (or mineral water from the neighbouring mountain springs).
The following stop will amaze you with colours as we visit the magnificent ‘kaleidoscope house’ to admire its stained glass decorations.
Back to the modern days, we’ll walk through the always busy Leselidze Street, which leads to the former main market square, called Meidan. Next thing we see is the red-brick domes of the Abanotubani sulphur baths, the hot springs with restorative properties that gave the city its name.
You’ll be surprised to see a spectacular waterfall right in the city center, the favourite place of the locals cool off on a hot summer day and make a wish.
As we cross the Metekhi Bridge, we’ll make a stop to take a look at the church on the rocks above the river. The royal palace was built here by Vakhtang Gorgasali when he made Tbilisi his capital all the way back in the 5th century.
Finally, we will take the winding path through Rike Park on the left riverbank and next on the glass-and-steel Peace Bridge which transformed Tbilisi’s profile.
Your tour will end near the clock tower of the Rezo Gabriadze marionette theatre. Before you go to continue exploring the city on your own, ask your expert local guide for more recommendations on what else to see and do while you’re in town.
