How to Spend 3 Days in Tbilisi

How to Spend 3 Days in Tbilisi

Georgia’s culturally rich capital is packed with enough sights, history, and adventure to keep you busy for three days. From visiting ancient fortresses to sampling Georgian wines and heading out into the nearby Caucasus, here’s how to make the most of your time in Tbilisi.

Day 1: Discover the City

Start by getting your bearings and checking off Tbilisi’s top attractions. To see as much as possible, consider booking a full-day guided tour of the city. Most tours are private—that is, it’s just you, your travel partners, and a guide—and typically include a cable car ride to Narikala Fortress and visits to landmarks such as the Holy Trinity Cathedral and Meidan Square. Some tours also stop by the historic town of Mtskheta. Alternatively, spend the morning on a walk through the capital or on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour, both of which give you the freedom to explore at your own pace.

Day 2: Savor Georgian Flavors

Georgia is known as the birthplace of wine. Fans of viticultural history can head out of the city on a day trip to the wine region of Kakheti. If you’d rather stick around Tbilisi, you can learn about Georgian wine making on a tour of various wine cellars. Almost as famous as Georgian wine, Georgian cuisine is the focus of several food tours, some of which include cooking lessons taught by locals. 

At night, travelers with energy to spare can join a local pub crawl, or head straight for the hottest clubs with a VIP skip-the-line pass.

Day 3: Head for the Mountains

Spend your final day soaking up the scenery of Kazbegi, on the slopes of the Caucasus Mountains. For hassle-free travel, opt for a full-day tour departing from Tbilisi in the morning. Check out the 16th-century castle complex of Ananuri and the Jinvali Reservoir before continuing along the Jvari Pass to the high-altitude town of Stepantsminda. From there, embark on an off-road adventure by 4WD vehicle to the summit of Gergeti Mountain, home of the 14th-century Gergeti Trinity Church. After lunch (sometimes included), hike through Darial Gorge to the Gveleti waterfalls.

Wind up your trip with a ride up to the Funicular Restaurant Complex, and relax over a dinner of traditional Georgian food and wine accompanied by panoramic views of the city.
