From its green valleys spread with vineyards to its old churches and watchtowers perched in fantastic mountain scenery. Georgia is one of the most beautiful countries on earth and a marvellous canvas for walkers, horse riders, cyclists, and skiers.
Georgia claims to be the birthplace of wine, and this is a place where guests are considered blessings and hospitality is the very stuff of life.
A deeply complicated history has given Georgia a wonderful heritage of architecture and arts, from cave cities to ancient cathedrals. Tbilisi, the capital, is still redolent of an age-old Eurasian crossroads. But this is also a country moving forward in the 21st century, with spectacular contemporary buildings, a minimal crime rate and ever-improving facilities for the happiness of visitors.
The ideal periods to visit Georgia are from mid-May to early July, and from early September to mid-October; the weather is generally warm and sunny.
July and August can be humid in the plains, with temperatures reaching 40 ° C. But it is an excellent period to stay in the mountains or by the Black Sea.
If you prefer hiking in the Caucasus, opt for June to September.
