Mtskheta and Jvari Day Tour from Tbilisi is the perfect way to experience Georgia’s religious history firsthand. Mtskheta was the capital of the Eastern Georgian Kingdom of Iberia for nearly 8 centuries, beginning in the 3rd century BC. Today Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta remains one of the most popular destinations for religious pilgrims, while Jvari Monastery is significant both for its architecture and the role that it played in Georgian church history.
In addition to visits to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and amazing views along the way, an optional village detour for a Georgian lunch and wine tasting is available for this tour.
