Whether you prefer ocean cruises or thoughtfully planned escorted tours, why not tick a holiday to Georgia off your travel bucket list? South of Russia, with the Black Sea nestling in the west and the Greater Caucasus Mountains along the northern border, Georgia’s varied and beautiful landscapes make it a joy to explore.
On our fascinating tour of Georgia, your journey begins in Tbilisi with a guided tour of this charming capital, set in the valley of the Mtkvari River. The climate is also ideal for its astonishing 8000-year wine producing heritage, and on our trip to Kakheti we sample the fruits of its UNESCO-recognised viticulture. We also journey to the former capital Mtskheta for even more UNESCO-protected gems, including the 6th-century Jvari church. Not to mention visits to the Stalin museum in his birthplace of Gori, and a tour of the Chavchavadze family’s grand estate. Along the way, take in the beautiful landscapes, with 40% of Georgia covered in lush forest, as well as the crystal-clear streams and pristine waterfalls along the Aragvi river.
Or perhaps Cruising the Black Sea on the Azamara Journey piques your interest. This 14-night full board cruise departs exclusively in July 2020 from historic Athens, before journeying through Istanbul, Romania and Georgia. Of course with included visits and lots to do as you sail, with an on-board spa, salon, pool, sun deck and gym. By day 11 of this luxury cruise, we'll arrive in Batumi, a stunning port city along the Black Sea, which boasts beautiful boulevards, belle-époque architecture and abundant flora along its coastal path.
