DAY – 1
Reception by the company’s representative in Tbilisi International Airport,taking the company’s car and heading to the hotel. After receiving the rooms we will start the first cruise in our tour by visiting Metechi Church, the landmark Metechi Chursh located on the elevated cliff that overlooks the Mtkvari River, and the 1960s equestrian statue of King Vakhtang Gorgasali beside it, occupy the strategic rocky outcrop above the Metechi Bridge. This is where Vakhtank Gorgasali built his palace, and the site’s first church, when he made Tbilisi his capital in the 5th century. The existing church was built by King Demetre Tavdadebuli (the self-sacificing) between 1278 and 1289, and has been reconstructed many times since. We will then visit the Sioni Cathedral, the Sioni Cathedral bears the name of Mount Zion at Jerusalem. It is commonly known as the “Tbilisi Sioni” to distinguish it from several other churches across Georgia bearing the name Sioni. It is located in downtown Tbilisi fronting the right embankment of the Kura River.
