From Yerevan: Overnight Tour of Georgia's Ancient Wonders

1. From Yerevan: Overnight Tour of Georgia's Ancient Wonders

On your first day arrive to Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Have a yummy lunch, including Georgian national dish. Drive to Mtshketa - the first capital of Christian Georgia, located at the mix-point of Kura and Aragvi rivers. Historical Monuments of Mtskheta are included in Unesco World Cultural Heritage List. See Jvari (Holy Cross) monastery, built in the first half of the 7th century. Enjoy a delightful observing city tour around Tbilisi and have overnight. On the second day visit Bodbe monastery, where the relics of the enlightener of Georgia, St. Nino (4th century), rest. The monastery is popular among tourists and pilgrims. Originally built (9-11 centuries) at the burial place of St. Nino, the temple was not preserved to the present day. A three-nave cathedral was built in its place in the name of St. George. The temple is the center of Sighnaghi eparchy. Have lunch in a cozy atmosphere. Head to Sighnaghi - a "city of Love". This is the only city in Georgia, that has completely preserved the fortress walls. The name of the city comes from the Turkic word signakh (signak), meaning fortified place, shelter. In Sighnaghi, according to a local legend, artist in love Niko Pirosmani covered the square in front of the hotel, where his beloved woman lived (French actress Margarita de Sevres), with flowers. Come back to Yerevan, full of brilliant memories from the tour!
