Tbilisi Long Weekend
4 days from £745
International flights NOT included - see below
Georgia's capital Tbilisi is an interesting city in its own right as well as being the gateway to a historic land of rich culture and scenic beauty.
DAY 1 - Arrival in Tbilisi.
On arrival in Tbilisi you will be met by a representative of World Discovery outside immigration and customs. You will then be taken by private car direct to your hotel. Recommended flight from London: Ukraine International Airlines from London Gatwick via Kiev (see below). If you are travelling from a country other than the UK we would be happy to give you guidance on your flight options.
DAY 2 – Tbilisi.
The morning has been left free for you to relax or sleep in after
your late arrival the night before. Your World Discovery Georgia holiday
begins after lunch when you meet your private guide and set off on a
walking tour of Georgia's capital city, founded in the 5th century by
King Gorgasili. Highlights will include the 12th century Metechi Church, the ancient Sulphur Bath Houses, Sioni Cathedral, symbol of the city, the Narikala Fortress and the State Museum of Fine Arts.
