Georgia Cruise Deals
The Georgian cruise port of Batumi on the Black Sea coast is a microcosm of this small former soviet republic that is now undergoing rapid development as a tourist destination. A place where you can seek out the historic and traditional, explore the quaint cobbled streets of the old town, with its pretty little houses covered in grapevines and shaded by walnut trees, or admire the confidently futuristic new face of the city with its up-market hotels, restaurants, casinos and nightclubs, and its giant public sculpture installations. The capital of Tbilisi is a four and half hour drive east of Batumi, and the place where Georgians flock to for excitement, action and culture. The dramatic setting of the old town, along the edge of high cliffs that drop vertically to the swiftly flowing Mtkvari River, alone makes it worth the visit.
