Georgia

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

Travel to Georgia is a sensory experience. There is no doubt that Georgia is the capital of food in the Caucasus region.  Delicious feasts await you, tables groaning with food, (a guest is perceived as a blessing here) using plentiful local fresh locally grown and sourced ingredients; walnut, pomegranate and smoked cheese. All of this is washed down by excellent Georgian wines, some produced totally naturally in large clay urns, buried underground. 

Georgia stands at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, one foot rooted in its past another pointing towards its future. Valleys to vineyards, mountains to rivers, this is one of the most spectacular landscapes in the Caucasus Mountains. Its people are equally beautiful, proud and highly spirited as history has shown time and again.

The capital, Tbilisi is another melting pot. In the 20th Century it was populated by international artists and intellectuals. The eclectic architecture varies from Ottoman inspired hot baths, delicate and crooked buildings built into the rock with intricately decorated balconies and jaw dropping examples of Art Nouveau. 

Architecture, art, music and cuisine are all distinctive threads in Georgia’s culture. A visit to Georgia is unforgettable. Immerse yourself in the magic of Georgia with Exeter International.

Insider's Guide

Where to Travel in Georgia

Georgia’s charming and picturesque, capital is a great base to explore the surrounding countryside. A day spent wandering in the old town soaking up the atmosphere of the cobbled streets and small cafes and shops is a must. A total contrast to the modern side of the city with its glass Bridge of Peace and funicular taking you up above to the clouds with views over the city and the gorge of the Mtkvari River.

Sighnaghi is in Kakheti, which is the wine region of Georgia. A visit to this small town and a local winery is a delightful day out of the city. The views of the Caucasus mountains from here are spectacular.

A day trip from Tbilisi a visit to Gori, the hometown of Joseph Stalin is not to be missed. His original simple local home has been preserved along with part of the train that he used to travel through the USSR. In addition, the Stalin Museum which originally opened in 1957 is now a major draw. It is expansive and quite jaw-dropping, certainly worth the visit, in particular if you get the museum guide that has worked there all her life.
