Vardzia Resort, Akhalkalaki-Kartsakhi, Georgia



Are you looking to see the best of Georgia but are short on time?
With this trip, you’ll have the opportunity to discover contrasting sites of several historical eras and do it all in just a day!
The journey will commence in Borjomi, a scenic resort located in south-central Georgia and surrounded by the beautiful Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park. Here you’ll have the opportunity to taste the famous Borjomi water and Georgia’s biggest export straight from the spring.

The Rabati castle, standing proudly over the historic town Akhaltsikhe, will tell you the story of many invasions and destructions – from Ottomans to Mongols and to Russia. Renovated and reopened once again in 2012, it’s one of the most visited places in Georgia today.

Another must-see Georgian attraction is the cave monastery Vardzia in the south of Georgia. Commissioned by King Tamar in the 12th century this underground complex connected 13 levels and contained 6000 apartments, a throne room and a large church with an external bell tower.

The last stop on our journey will be the Khertvisi fortress, one of the rare examples of the feudal period in Georgia. The legend says it was destroyed by Alexander the Great himself.
