Here it comes the continuation of my travel story for yesterday.(Click here to read previous post). Morning came, I woke up around 7:00 am in the morning prepared myself and took breakfast , then I just stayed in the lobby. This time our pick up will be at 9:00am, we started a bit early as our itinerary for the day is quite long, we need to travel 3 hours from Old Tbilisi town up to Gudauri mountain if without stopover, but along the way we have some stopover on significant historical point.
As continuation of my previous post .. I arrived in the hotel, had some rest, took lunch and waited for my tour guide to pick me.
At 2:00 pm I was already in lobby and waiting for them, but they arrived around 2:30pm as we were many they need to pick from different hotel. The bus was full of tourist from different countries. There are couple, family, group of friends and also solo traveler like me.
Then, our tour guide name Martha welcome us and explain about our itinerary for the day.
Our first destination was visiting to Jvris Monastery in Mtskheta. It took only around 35 minutes from Old Tbilisi town going up to the hill top of Mtskheta where Jvari Monastery is located.

Many of the ancient churches in Georgia are located on a hill. One of them is the Jvari Monastery in Mstkheta. (Mtskheta is one of the oldest towns and cultural and religious centre of Georgia. It was the capital of the Eastern Georgian Kingdom of Iberia from the Third century BC.)
