Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi, Tbilisi Georgia

We walk around both the old and new town of Tbilisi, seeking out the architecture and interiors.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Rustaveli Avenue, Freedom Square to Kostava Street, Tbilisi Georgia

During the day we also have EXCLUSIVE access to a stunning disused ex-Soviet theatre (as featured in the photo at the top of the page), with permission from the owner. We shall spend an hour or so inside here after lunch, picking out compositions and unique angles.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: S. Nshan Armenian Church, Vertskhli St, T'bilisi, Georgia

The cobblestoned old town is a product of its rich and turbulent history. Periods under Persian and Russian rule have left it dotted with Eastern Orthodox churches, ornate Art Nouveau buildings and brutalist Soviet Modernist structures. This example is Armenian. We stop here to take some externals of the lovely features.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Davit Agmashenebeli Ave, 37-39 Davit Aghmashenebeli Ave, T'bilisi, Georgia

Over in the East of Tbilisi, we visit the old Apollo Movie Theatre, a stunning 100 year old building that is due to have a renovation project completed on it in the coming years.

Duration: 2 hours

I can't recommend this day trip with James highly enough. I've always had a strong interest in the aesthetic of old and derelict architecture, and delivered that in spades, and a LOT more! The ex-Soviet Theatre was stunning, but my favourite shot of the day was probably the
