Flying to Tbilisi with Alitalia will take you to the ancient capital of the Georgian people, a city boasting incredible charm and numerous majestic old buildings – plus some of the most welcoming people in the world. It's a place where Europe meets Asia and where cultures have intermingled over thousands of years.
When you purchase tickets to Tbilisi, you'll have a world of sights to choose from. For stunning views, take the funicular railway to the top of the hill and marvel at Tbilisi's ancient architectural styles. A visit to the nearby fortress is a must and you'll be impressed by the hot-spring sulfur baths. Also well worth a visit is the Anchiskhati Basilica, the oldest church in the area with a history going back to the 6th century. For a little variety, try the National Botanical Garden of Georgia.
Travel to Tbilisi in the summer and you can expect hot weather, with the hills above the town offering a beautifully cool escape if you need it. “Turtle Lake” in the hills is great for swimming and boating as you take a break from the summer heat. May and June have higher rainfall than other times, and festivals are sprinkled liberally throughout the year.
