We thought that restaurants elsewhere..like Musafir, Oliva, and Chachapuri, were more interesting than the food offerings on this street.But it is scenic and worth a short stroll. Begin from Andrew's church and walk down.

This is an old church in good conditions. Worth visiting not on a rainy day. It has green tops unlike the gold ones. Very unique.

I really enjoyed visiting St. Andrew's church and making the walk down the descent. Along the walk, there were plenty of merchandise stands, shops and restaurants to fill your time.

Not sure if you are able to schedule a visit inside but this particular cathedral was under reconstruction when we were here. It can be seen from far off and is quite imposing in it's beauty.
