Continue to NARIKALA FORTRESS and its ST. NIKOLAS CHURCH. Walk up the fortress stairs to get a “bird-eye” view of this magical city. Narikala can be seen from any point within Old Tbilisi.

Head to STEPANTSMINDA (the climbing resort on Great Caucasus’ mountains).
This is most people’s destination on the Georgian Military Hwy: a valley town with the famous hilltop silhouette of Tsminda Sameba Church and the towering snowy cone of Mt Kazbek looking down from the west. Now officially named Stepantsminda, but still commonly known as KAZBEGi, it’s a base for some wonderful walking and mountain biking.
Contemplate this 14th-century church 2,200m above Stepantsminda, a symbol of Georgia for its incomparably photogenic hilltop ..and for the fierce determination involved in building it on such a lofty, isolated perch. The views back over Stepantsminda are incredible.

Breakfast then journey to Kakheti, the wine area. There are 2,000 varieties of grapes worldwide, of which 500 varieties grow here in Kakheti. Drive to “SIGHNAGHI” the beautiful city of love. Famous for its eponymous castle, included in the list of the most famous and largest forts in Georgia.
Sighnaghi is perhaps Georgia’s single most attractive town, with an amazing position perched on a lofty hilltop facing the snowcapped Caucasus looming in the distance across the vast Alazani valley. Full of 18th and 19th century architecture and with a vaguely Tuscan feel, Sighnaghi has seen a comprehensive renovation program and has seen scores of hotels open. the town has retained its easy charm and is still a lovely place to spend a couple of days.
Descend to the sources of St. Nino (a 30-min walking). Visit “Bodbe” –
Bodbe Convent, the revered final resting place of St Nino, is set among tall cypresses 2km south of Sighnaghi, a pleasant walk on country roads. The little church was originally built over the saint’s grave by King Mirian in the 4th century. A steep path leads 800m down to a small chapel built over St Nino’s Spring, which reputedly burst forth after she prayed on this spot. Pilgrims queue up to drink and splash themselves with the holy water.
