The cave town of Vardzia is fascinating, different from other things I've seen and worth a visit. Especially the church rooms and the caves leading from one to another were exciting. I wish we had rented an audio guide or brought some other information with...More

Vardzia is a must-see place in Georgia! We have seen a number of rock dwellings around the Caucuses, many in very good condition but Vardzia looks very well kept and is amazing to see in person. Lots of stairs so be prepared for that and...More

Impressive cave complex that has a fascinating history. You can come here on a marshrutka that leaves at 10:30am and goes back at 3pm. It's very cheap at 5 lari. You can get around in 2 hours. I visited on a very hot day but...More

The cave City is a must on your travels, walking in the past history , and religion dating way back..You can walk through the area which has interconnecting caves. Must wear sturdy shoes as some places have loose stones .

This cave-town is better to visit during the September-November, so the beauty of this place and whole Samtskhe-Javakheti Region would be highlighted with colourful autumn trees. Do not hesitate to drive a bit further to next villages along the river. There were some beautiful rocks,...More

You don´t need to take a taxi to visit this site. You can take a minibus, that runs 3 times a day, and if you take the first at 10.30, you have enough time to visit the cave city, and return to Akhaltsikhe at 3...More

I agree: it is not safe. But as long as you keep your kid tight at all times, I see no reason why you shouldn't visit the place and enjoyed it yourself. Your kid may not get a thing of Vardzia, but you deserve to go there... More
