...and a huge tourist trap. Definitely worth checking out, but be cautious of overly zealous shopkeepers and the many beggars in the area. There are quite a few gypsy kids who are pretty aggressive about asking for money, so watch your belongings.

Interesting pedestrian area that attracts foreigners. Few things to visit. Architecture is still poor since only partially rehabilitated. Some interesting bars and restaurants, which attract foreigners especially during the summer.

Old Town of Tbilisi or Dzveli Kalaki is one of the best and nice places for me, I live there for more than one and half year. You can enjoy Balconies and walking around old houses. Close to must of historic sites in Tbilisi.

I did a couple of thirty-minute walks through here taking about a 20 - 25 walk from the hotel (Rooms Tbilisi). It's pretty nice for someone hunting for old books which I do. Some of the rugs were OK.

We loved walking around the streets here, lots of life, cafes, people, charm, character. Allow yourself to get lost and discover new things in this maze.

The parts that have been renovated, are a bit too slick and touristy and the parts that haven't are a bit too dilapidated.

One of the old towns you really shoud see. Old Tbilisi has a charming atmosphere and a combination of crooked and winding streets with some cozy cafes and wine shops. I really enjoyed it, we lived in a hostel located on one of the hilltops and it was great!

Too much traffic, but a delight to walk the old neighborhoods ..... lots of personality. One day with a guide, a second on our own. Very pleasant, and amazing churches.
