Take Kakheti tour to explore the best-known places of Georgian traditional winemaking center, known also for its magnificent nature of fertile valleys and numerous architectural monuments of the Middle Ages. The ancient fortresses and temples, shrouded in legends, monasteries, magnificent buildings with a century-long history, felt in every stone of the masonry darkened with time, cause an involuntary awe. During the Kakheti tour you will explore Telavi, the center of Kakheti; the elegant Alaverdi Cathedral - one of the most well-known medieval temples in Georgia; Ikalto Academy – alma mater of Shota Rustaveli, the 12th century Georgian poet; Chavchavadze House Museum – historically important sight surrounded by English park and winery in the basement.
