A Tour of Old Tbilisi

Historic Central Tbilisi

The Old Tbilisi area of the Georgian capital has some of the most stunning views in Georgia, the most iconic and appealing of which is probably the sheer sides of the gorge through which the central river (Mtvari) in Tbilisi runs. Moreover, in the hills around central Tbilisi, which are several thousand feet high, there are historic fortresses, churches, botanical gardens and a cable car ride, which provides a birds-eye view of the entire city from the hills above. Probably, the area was also known to the earliest humans, as well, with 1.8 million year old fossils (the oldest outside of Africa) being found at Dmanisi, just 90km to the south.
