Its strategic location also makes it the perfect base to explore the nearby desert, mountain, and wine regions. 

Other than Tbilisi, the most popular places include back pebble beaches in Batumi and Ushguli, which is a tiny collection of villages located high in the Caucasian mountain region of Svaneti. While Batumi is filled with modern architecture and a gorgeous botanical garden, Ushguli offers dozens of ancient watchtowers and surreal views.
