Vashlovani Day Tour takes place in south Kakheti, a small historical region known as Kiziki. During the tour, we will visit Vashlovani national park and Sighnaghi.
Our first destination will be the visitors center in the small town of Dedoplistskaro. Vashlovani national park’s main attractions are pretty far from town, but we will visit three important places:
The next destination will be Bodbe nunnery. This is the place where Aaint Nino of Kabadokia, one of the most respected saints in Georgia, passed away. The nunnery is located in a beautiful place near Signagi. The main church dates back to the XI century and has interesting medieval wall paintings.
The last destination will be the cozy late medieval town of Signagi. Optionally, we recommend eating lunch and tasting wine at the famous Okro’s winery. Here you will try the finest Kakhetian organic wines and the best food in the region, while enjoying a fantastic view from the terrace. Signagi is a wonderful and romantic town to walk in with its narrow streets. Additionally, it is possible to visit the local museum. Here is a collection of paintings by famous Georgian painter Niko Pirosmani. After a nice walk in the town, Vashlovani Day Tour finishes and we return to Tbilisi.
