Day Trip to Kakheti in Georgia

Day trips to region of Kakheti in Georgia are quite possible and I would actually recommend to take one if you have a chance.. I have explored region of Kakheti in different ways (mostly by marshrutka and car). I prefer personal car with a driver. If you feel you are indie or rough traveler you might try marshrukta leaving from Tbilisi. Today I'll show you one of my favorite Kakheti day trip routes which is accessible by car.

This route will take you from Tbilisi to Telavi, then to nearby Kvareli and in the evening back to Tbilisi. (You should plan this day trip as early as possible)

It might seem as an easy route, but it will take all your day (especially if you will take your time to make pictures at these sites). You will visit a few really interesting Georgian Orthodox Churches (Nekresi monastery complex is among my favorite), a wine tunnel (you can have a wine tasting here, for additional money), you will see a Giant Plane Tree (more than 900 years old and about 12 meters wide/ 46 meters high). I would suggest to try local Telavi khinkali at Zodiako bar, and if you will be lucky enough (the day wont be over yet) you could make a stop at David Gareja Monastery complex.

I was able to manage such day trip for about GEL 80 + gas and food expenses for my driver.
