We start Tbilisi sightseeing tour – the Old Town. The city offers a wide variety of sights, most of them very ancient. Starting at the church of Metekhi, we walk to the brick domes of sulfur baths and then on to spectacularly located Narikala fortress – one of the oldest fortresses in Georgia, overlooking Mtkvari river gorge. After that we visit the synagogue, and the Sioni and Anchiskhati churches, which mark the end of the Old Town. Right next to the VI century Anchiskhati church we will have lunch break in Cafe Gabriadze unique and cozy atmosphere.
After the light lunch, later in the evening we will visit The Gabriadze Puppet Theatre to attend marvelous performance.
