- Peak season: Summer and winter, depending on your trip itinerary.
- Low season: Spring and autumn, due to the rain.
Flights to Georgia take at least 7 hours with a stopover from London.
Experience Georgia: what to see, what to do
Georgia is a totally unique destination with two very different attractions: the mountains for ski holidays and a beautiful sandy coast along the Black Sea, which is perfect in summer. Add to the mix a handful of charming historic towns and you’ve got the perfect trip.
Essentials in Georgia
Tbilisi: The Georgian capital is a beautiful city on the banks of the Mtkvari River. It’s overflowing with interesting museums, galleries and churches. Don’t miss the old town for its tiny winding streets and old-style balconies.
Bakuriani: If you’re off on a ski holiday, head to Bakuriani’s ski slopes. The city once made a bid to host the Winter Olympics. It’s an easy drive with a Georgia car hire from Tbilisi towards the south of the country.
Uplistsikhe: For a dose of history, check out this 3,600-year-old Silk Road cave city. It’s definitely something that will impress and was also, many, many years ago a centre for the Caucasian pagan religion.

Accommodation in Georgia
You can find Western hotels not only in Tbilisi but also in Batumi and a number of other Georgian cities. In the countryside the best option, and by far the most interesting, is to stay in a local home. Hotels tend to be overpriced as tourism is only starting to take off in the country.
