The place is historic and monumental. Those attracted in ancient history must definitely visit this attraction. In the way back, there is a hidden escape root that inspires visitors. The age of the caves goes back to the Iron Age.

This partly underground old pagan / christian city is worth the visit. You can visit old cave houses and (again) and old church. Nice views over the valley but do bring good walking shoes.

We arrived at 2:00 AM to Tbilisi, and at 11:00 AM we were heading to the Cave Town. Well, I like history and such type of adventures but not my friends. A nice cave city. Just look at the rocks formation and the wind effect....More

The caves are pretty unique, but the whole site could be done in an hour. Our guide was enthusiastic but we had struggles understanding each other in English.

Hello! Would Easy Spirit AP1 walking shoes be adequate for walking around Uplistsiche? I don't want to have to bring hiking boots if they aren't absolutely necessary. Thanks!

You'll be fine wearing your sneakers. Be ready for a bit of wind and sun, however.
Is it suitable to visit this place with a 10 month old baby in March? Will there be a flat ground for me to change her diapers (if required)?
