Visited with my kids 6 and 9. The fortress is simple and small. It’s near the mother of Georgia attraction and we did it one the way down. You can visit this place in case you are planning to do mother of Georgia.

the view is perfect, you may see the old city and the entire city actually. it is kind of funny to go with the cable car, however, the castle itself, is not that amazing or breath taking. actually, nothing to be missed up there.

Nice location, not too far from the center of Tbilisi, you can actually walk there. If you are a fan of hicking you can reach it using the stairs, if you want to get there quickly and more comfortably, take the cable car, it's only...More

It is a pity that idyllic Nariqala Fortress exploded in 1827. One source says it was struck by lightning, another one that it was destroyed by an earthquake. In Tbilisi I heard the lightning version. In any case, I enjoyed going up to the fortress...More

The heading says it all!! Accessible by steps (not for those with difficulties on narrow steps) from the cable car landing and also by road from the town below. Worth it for the view below, while the fortress per se isn't much to write home...More
