All reviews wall paintings king david gelato buried here monastic complex main church burial place beautiful frescoes xii century unesco heritage site virgin mary free entrance rich history roof tiles world heritage list extensive renovations steep walk
Somewhat off the beaten track (you'll need a car or taxi for the 15 min journey from Kutaisi town but a real delight to find this fascinating complex still in active use. A slight sense of decay adds to the sense of tradition.
Although the monastery is under going extensive renovations its still open to visit.
The outside is currently being re constructed so lots of scaffolding and workmen.
Inside is just breathtaking. Depicting Christian history through simple but effect paintings on every part of the inside that...More
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to these Caves. The entrance fee to these impressive Caves is well worth it as the caves are spectacular and your ticket includes a very knowledgeable local guide. The stalagmites and stalactites are some of the best we have seen...More
We went there by taxi from Kutaisi. It was a short route between the hills. In there, you can find three churches, one of the oldest belfry and David the Builder grave with the oldest sentence written in the Georgian language. Plus, there is a...More
Hi all Bagrati Cathedral Motsameta Monastery Gelati Monastery Prometheus Cave Sataplia Martvili and Okatse canyons and waterfalls. Are all these places doable in one day in July with a privet car with driver? With 20 to 60 minutes spend in each (and 120 in Prometheus Cave). Can you estimate the cost? Thanks

Hi, It is not doable to visit all these places in one day. You can try but you will not have time for Okatse or Martvili or both after visiting monasteries and caves. The tour to Prometheus may start late as you can not go there any time. Sataplia is the same, so you may need more than one hour for each place. Driving half hour between each place. For Martvili you need one hour but Okatse may takes 2 hours if you will not take a local jeep and you go there hiking. By jeep you gain half an...More

Visiting Georgia in March - General questions and Itinerary (1 Replies)
Hi, My girlfriend and I are planning a 10day/9nights trip to Georgia in the second half of March (16th-25th) and would love some input from the community. We like culture, historic buildings, local food and nature. We are currently living in a mountainous country with plenty of snow etc, so we are not going to Georgia to see snow/ski etc, we get plenty of this at home. Considering the time of the year; how would you recommend we travel through the country? We would like to keep the...More

You have 9 questions in your post and none of them has a concrete answer. For example this one: "How much should I expect to pay for a car with driver/guide for a day?" How many km? One day non-stop driving? What kind of car? Going from where to where? So this one question is impossible to answer if you don't answer 4 questions yourself in advance. I think you need to restart the whole thing all over again.
