Tour itinerary:

Day 1: Batumi – Mestia
 
Our driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel in the morning to start the tour to Svaneti. This region is the birthplace of a unique ethnic group – the Svans – who distinguish themselves from other ethnic groups in Georgia with their amazing and old culture and traditions. Svaneti is also famous for its original and authentic architecture and is dubbed as a “land of thousand towers”. Those towers used to play an important economic and defensive role in the history of Svaneti. There are still dozens of the towers – Middle Ages stone houses with fire watchtowers; and churches (X-XIV cc).
The evening you may spend visiting the original svan house “machubi”, and “koshki” tower. Overnight at the hotel.
Day 2: Mestia – Ushguli – Mestia
 
After breakfast at the hotel drive to Ushguli village, the highest standing settlement in Europe (2,200 m). Spend time in Ushguli strolling old narrow streets. Visit Lamaria Church complex with impressive wall frescos (XII century). Locals believe that it was under this church that Queen Tamara was buried. Enjoy the picturesque view of Mt. Shkhara. Ushguli architectural complex is a valuable architectural and historical monument listed in World Heritage of UNESCO for its exclusiveness. There are about 70 families living in Ushguli (around 200 people). Overnight at the hotel in Mestia.
Day 3: Mestia – Zugdidi – Batumi
 
After breakfast check out from the hotel. Visit the Svaneti Museum of History and Ethnography. Drive to Batumi. En route, we will stop at Dadiani Palace in Zugdidi. The 17th-century palace was built by Levan Dadiani, a local prince, and served as a residence of Megrelian princess and princesses.
