“Wandering through typical old houses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Discovering the part of the old Tblisi, just beside that unusual looking clock tower, and getting lost through the old and broken house (with residents still living inside) was one of the best thing to be done in Tblisi. These houses looked really old, some looked "crooked", I was really wondering how they still stand; some cats around, some children playing, but so quiet and beautiful in its semplicity. Personally I preferred it to the old quarter of Alfama in Lisbon

“Pretty but not spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I think I had set my expectations too high for the Old Town - yes, it was quite pretty and interesting to explore the laneways, but it wasn't spectacular nor was I walking around in awe constantly. Of course it is a must see when you're in Tbilisi but we found that a half a day was really all we needed to devote to seeing all of the sights here.

“Rear Old Tbilisi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Every corner, every part of Old City breathes antiquity. Every time I come to Tbilisi and enjoy atmosphere of Old Tbilisy.

“Old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We stayed primarily in Old Town. Anything you can want was along the street of our hotel. Plenty of Icon shops! Also, a few trendy bistros as well as kebab houses.
