“The View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

It is all about the view, wether you walk there or take the cable car, the view is fantastic. The fortress itsself is not that impressive after the view. Make sure to take a good camera, people at home want to see this!

“What a hike, but what a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Worth the hike though the old Tbilisi neighborhoods. The views are fantastic. Very historical. You can also take a sky tram but the hike is so much more interesting; take a camera!

“the nice view of the city !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The Narikala Fortress is located in the Old Tbilisi, near St Nicolas Church and has a nice view of the city, mainly Central Botanical Garden and Kartlis Deda, the Mother of Georgia Monument.A sugestion: cross the Metekhi bridge, going to Europa Square and take a cable car(fee 2 georgian lari or one american dollar) and enjoy other big view of all Tbilisi!!!

“Need to visit at least once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Just do it. Take the cable car up if you need to, or just to see the city - the view is nice. The Fortress plays a big part in the design of the city, so you need to go here. Drop in the church up top as well!

“Nothing so amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I must say that the fortress itself isn't so amazing. In the dark the lights are making it beautiful. I also enjoyed getting there by "gondolas".
