Tbilisi

On the bank of the Mtkvari River and at the foot of Trialeti mountain range, Tbilisi's location has given the city strategic significance since it was founded in the 5th century.
Get a sense of the local culture at Georgian National Museum and Tsminda Sameba Cathedral. Do your shopping at Gallery 27 and Prospero's Books & Caliban's Coffee. Get out of town with these interesting Tbilisi side-trips: Mtskheta (Jvari Church & Svetitskhoveli Cathedral). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Narikala Fortress, get great views at Funicular, appreciate the history behind Shota Rustaveli Statue, and steep yourself in history at Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Tbilisi custom trip planner.

Cairo, Egypt to Tbilisi is an approximately 13-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Cairo to Tbilisi due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Cairo in March, plan for cooler days in Tbilisi, with highs around 15°C, while nights are slightly colder with lows around 5°C.
