“Make it part of your route”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Just walk around and you will find this gem in the middle. Great frescoes and lovely religious atmosphere. The entrance is simple but so pretty. Do not forget to check the balcony of "Romeo & Juliet" just outside.

“A lovely hidden gem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

It is always a battle when funds are scarce but this Church is well worth helping. The frescoes are proof of this.

“Inside is beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Very well maintained inside; when we went we were the only ones there; kind of feels forgotten but it's very pretty.

“One of the nearest churches of local Piccadilly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Sioni is between Erekle and Shardeni streets, which are currently the most popular streets for tourists and gourmands. It was the main cathedral till 2005. The best season for taking picture around Cathedral is Summer. This place has no additional attractions for tourists and it's not devoted to Tourism.
Construction of Sioni started in 5th century. It was reconstructed many times, since Orthodox Georgia was frequently attacked by Turks, Arabs, Mongols.

“beautiful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

as a new cathedral, I was quite impressed by the external appearance of the church. but nothing interesting inside. women dont need to cover their heads during their visit. I was there on a Sunday morning when there was a service. It was crowded and despite of the service it was loud.
