Drive to Dmanisi, located in the gorge of Mashavera river, 104 km (approximately 2 h drive) from Tbilisi. Visit Dmanisi Sioni (7th c.) and Dmanisi fortress built in the 10th c. Tour includes a visit to the archaeological site, pagan burial, and basilica (6th c.), as well as seeing the ruins of the royal palace.

International Archaeological excavations in Dmanisi have revealed an extraordinary record of the earliest settlement from Africa (1,75-1,8 million years ago). French scientists have reconstructed the skulls of woman and man so realistically, that you can easily imagine them alive.

After the lunch, drive to the town Bolnisi - the fertile settlements in the lower Kartli. Visit one of the oldest three-nave basilicas - Bolnisi Sioni. Georgia's most ancient inscriptions are preserved on the walls of the church. The inscriptions date back to the late 5th century. The columns are decorated with beautiful stone-carving of birds and animals. Visit Bolnisi museum - very interesting excavations are found in the area. Museum offers ethnoghrapical and historical objects since early humans life.

Drive just 2.6 km from Bolnisi and visit Tsugrugasheni Cathedral (13th c) – the elegant mediaeval high-domed church, distinguished for its architecture, proportions and ornaments around the windows in the drum of the dome.
