The Basics

Cars with tinted glass windows create the perfect opportunity for cityscape photos in climate-controlled comfort—be quick, though, as the ride takes only about a minute and a half. At the top of the hill, explore Narikala Fortress, or get a nature fix in the Tbilisi Botanical Garden. Many city sightseeing tours include a ride on the aerial tramway en route to the fortress.

Tbilisi Walking Tour with Cable Cars, Wine Tasting and Traditional Bakery
$10.00 per adult
High quality tour guide in Tbilisi
If I were speaking to someone about this walking tour, I would stress that you are a "blue chip" tour guide company. I myself have usually been in a little less style. At the same time, it was not so expensive and I thoroughly enjoyed every single moment with the great local tour guide Luka. Thanks! "

When to Get There

The Tbilisi Aerial Tramway typically runs every day year-round until late at night. Although you can visit Narikala Fortress at any time, the landmark is most attractive when it’s lit up after dark.

Narikala Fortress

Most travelers ride the tramway to get to the ancient Narikala Fortress, which dominates the Tbilisi skyline and affords great views of the city. Established in the fourth century, the fortress is divided into two sections between the Orbeliani sulfur baths and the Tbilisi Botanical Garden, with contemporary St. Nicholas Church on the lower level.
