Discovering Georgia - Times Expert Traveller
Availability: 18 places
Lying at the crossroads of trade and tradition for centuries, Georgia is one of Europe’s undiscovered gems. A place of myth and legend, this is a land of tradition and faith, where you can find some of the oldest churches in Christendom and some of the most spectacular scenery on the continent.
The journey, designed exclusively for Times Expert Traveller, begins on the banks of the Mtkvari River, in Georgia’s charming capital, Tbilisi. From here we journey through forested valleys and snow-capped mountains, explore ancient cave towns and clustered rural villages which are rich in heritage and can trace their origins back to late antiquity.
Sampling rich native wines and Georgia’s mouth-watering cuisine as we go, we’ll discover bustling markets, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a stunning array of religious architecture and outstanding scenery that form the backdrop to one of Europe’s best kept secrets.
