Georgia’s wine industry dates back seven thousand years and the vineyards make some very fine wines at very affordable prices. Georgia was one of the first countries to take to Christianity and the mountains are full of monasteries and churches. The emerald green hillsides and valleys surround these and the tiny stone houses and watchtowers, built in centuries past.
In the capital city, Tbilisi, narrow tree-lined streets and colorful old houses mingle with modern shops, cafes and restaurants. The old town clinging to a cliff side, sports ancient churches, mosques and sulphur baths.
