On the bank of the Mtkvari River and at the foot of Trialeti mountain range, Tbilisi's location has given the city strategic significance since it was founded in the 5th century.
Get a sense of the local culture at Narikala Fortress and David Gareja Monastery. Get some historical perspective at Tsminda Sameba Cathedral and Anchiskhati Basilica. Step out of Tbilisi to go to Tsinandali and see Tsinandali Palace, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. Dedicate the 13th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area.
