If you’re new to Georgia, having arrived in the most recent orientation group before being quickly transferred to your villages across the country, you may not have had ample time just yet to explore Tbilisi and grow accustomed to ex-Soviet public transportation.

For many tourists coming to Georgia the primary activities consist of a cultural tour of Tbilisi, centered around the Old City and Rustaveli Avenue, and then a trip to the Black Sea.
