Full description

Spend a day exploring some of the most fascinating attractions in Georgia, starting with the ancient town of Uplistsikhe, considered one of the oldest urban settlements in all of George and dating back to 200 B.C.

The ancient rock-hewn town, on the list for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage program, contains a bulk of rock-cut structures and is connected to the southern part via a narrow rock-cut pass and a tunnel.

Narrow alleys and sometimes staircases radiate from the central "street" to its various structures, making it a fascinating place to explore. After exploring Uplistsikhe, continue the tour to Joseph Stalin's Museum in Gori, established as a local history museum but clearly intended to become a memorial to Stalin.

The main building of the complex is a large palace in Stalinist Gothic style. Enshrined within a Greco-Italianate pavilion is a small wooden hut, in which Stalin was born in 1878 and spent his first four years.
