“Great views from up and good for your orientation in Tbilisi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

The Aerial tramway is one of the unmissable and easy-to-get places in town. While the ticket costs 2 GEL (little over 1 USD and little less than 1 EUR) as a public transportation ticket, you'll have a view over the main part of the city in a modern and comfortable capsule with a few more travelers or locals.
It's good to try it both during the day and in the evening when the city is lit up (it ran until 10 pm in March 2013).

“Tram your way to the top of T'bilisi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a good, cheap ride that is very safe and very modern. It saves a lot of walking and takes you near the statue of Mother Georgia and the Narikala Castle. Keep your camera ready and you will have ample opportunity to capture all of the city and somewhat of the mountains beyond through the polished glass of the gondola. Do this ride on the first day and your arial view of the town will help keep you oriented toward your hotel later in the evening.

“Nice view of ALWAYS pad "new" glass bridge over Mtkavari river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

First, get a Metro card at one of the many Metro stops in Tbilisi and use it on yellow city buses, yellow public transport minivans, and the city subway. it cost 2 GEL for the rechargeable plastic metro card [a little more than a dollar]. When you go to the aerial tramway the cable car lift fare will be deducted just one lari per rider, from your metrocard. It is much easier to ask for a Metrocard on the Metro than at the tourist ticket window for the aerial tramway ski lift.

From the windows of your aerial tramway you get close up views of the NASA like spaceship constructions of the recently voted out of office, government's craze for "modern" glass display extravaganzas, in the Rike district near the glass presidential superpalace, and of the Disney-like color by numbers gentrification of gussied up old building facades in the Meidani district below the airborne tramway cable cars. The newly French designed and engineered sky lift works well, so don't be afraid, even if it is windy.

Once at the top you can visit Narikala Fortress, the Tbilisi Botanical Gardens [ask if you can go inside the HERBARIUM, you can't miss spotting this institutional looking modern edifice once inside the garden, it stands apart from all other attractions in the botanical garden], and you can even walk easily nearby to the new prime minister's long standing private home built in nearby Sololaki Heights.

There are several old broken down historic buildings near the Kartlis Deda MOTHER OF GEORGIA towering above the trees, a metallic [aluminum] sculpture, of the Protectress Saint of Georgia, that give the area a slight feeling of ancient Greece. Wonderful views of the river as it stretches to the right out to the Ortachala district, make one pine for the old tableau of a more natural Tbilisi, decades and centuries ago.

“nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

This is the easiest way to go t to the mountain top to have a nice view of the city.
Use the stairs on your way down.
