A must do when in Georgia. I would recommend to read an introduction on this cave city (from a guide book for example) before visiting as it makes it all the more interesting. This is an entire city, carved into the rocks, built up on a hill overlooking the area. According to guide books, some of the structures date from 1000BC. Some of the buildings or part there of are signed in Georgian and English to help imagine what they were used for at the time. This place is really fun to explore so I imagine it would be interesting for children too. Wearing sturdy shoes and sunscreen are essential as there is a bit of easy climbing and uneven surfaces, also there is no protection from the sun. Entry is 3 lari and the site- at the time, openned from 11am till 6pm but this has been known to change and if you arrive early (i arrived at 9am) the police might let you in with a bit of convincing. A taxi from Gori cost me 25 lari return. About 1 and a half hours is a good amount of time to see everything (the driver will ask you how long you want him to wait for you). There is a souvenir shop at the entrance with books about the site in English.
