This one day tour program will start with the drive to the legendary and beautiful Jvari Monastery – one of the major symbols of the Christianity in Georgia. Jvari is located on top of the mountain from where opens an amazing view over the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers conjunction, as well as Mtskheta itself.

After lunch in the town of Gori you will visit the Goristsikhe – remains of the ancient fortress that stands on a high hill right in the middle of the town.
