  • Day 1
    Early morning after breakfast drive on to the direction of Kutaisi. The city of Kutaisi dates back to the Argonauts’ time (13th -12th centuries B.C). Formerly capital of old Colchida, Kutaisi then ruled all of Western Georgia. Visiting Sataplia nature reserve / The star features of the 3.3-sq-km reserve, 9km northwest of Kutaisi, are a couple of dozen 120-million-year-old, fossilized dinosaur footprints (well displayed in a protective building), and an attractively lit 300m-long cave with a small underground river. The reserve is covered in thick, subtropical Colchic forest and has a couple of panoramic lookout points. It takes about an hour to walk round the main visitor route. There is an outlook constructed of glass with an astoundingly beautiful view of the Imereti region. This pathway is particularly suitable for families. Besides the dinosaur footprints, there are model dinosaurs along this pathway – a favorite among children and an excellent setting for family photos. Overnight at the hotel.
