In the morning we will leave the town of Kvareli and continue our trip to Alaverdi Cathedral (11th century). This monumental, solemn-looking edifice dominates the surrounding landscape in the fertile river valley against the backdrop of the Caucasus Mountains. Famous for its façades with monumental blind arcades and opulent decorations , Alaverdi Cathedral has many times been plundered during its history.
Later, we continue to the village of Ikalto to visit a local Qvevri (clay jar) Academy and learn more about Georgia’s traditional Qvevri wine-making tradition (UNESCO Workd Heritage Intangible Site since 2013 ) which is a key element of national and cultural identity of Georgia.
After all, we drive back to Tbilisi and check -in to our hotel.
