Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Narikala Fortress

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At:

Opened in 2012, a cable car connects Rike Park on the left bank of the Mtkvari river with Narikala Fortress. For only 1 Lari you can kill two birds with one stone – gaze at the fantastic 360-degree views of the city from the large windows of the car and have an easy ride to the top of the hill. The ride only takes a couple of minutes, which is our only complaint, because with such beautiful views to take in, the trip goes far too fast. We really hope that the officials in charge of the cable car read this and heed our plea to slow it down. When you get out at the hill-top station turn right to the Kartlis Deda statue, or left to the Narikala Fortress. A tip: wait for the car with a sign saying 'only 5 people allowed': it has a glass floor. The cable car accepts Metro cards, which you can get at the cable car station (to use multiple times, also at the public busses, Marshutkas and metros in the city) or pay single time at the place.
