This is the perfect spot for the pictures of the city. Make sure you wear hiking shoes and have water to drink while making the hike up hill.

This fortress was built in the fourth century as a citadel to keep watch over the narrowest point on the Mtkvari River. The views from here and the views of the fortress during the day and at night are awesome!

1. Lots of 'wild’ and a little bit dangerous places to get a great photo. 2. Looks great from the Botanical Garden. So make a double trip: fortress and the Garden. 3. Road to fortress is quite picturesque. 4. This place is free of charge.

Being on the top of Tibilisi it is good to pass by Narikala Fortress. Fortress itself is only partly reconstructed, but it offers a nice view to the whole valley.
