#1 of 49 in Outdoors in Georgia
Named for a medieval Georgian poet, Rustaveli Avenue throbs with the life of the city and offers insight into the interaction of the old and new in Georgia. The avenue begins at Freedom Square, where government and cultural buildings line the street interspersed with shops and eateries. Among the imposing facades are the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre, the Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia, and the former parliament building of Georgia. Walk the avenue to find small, independent stores shoulder-to-shoulder with big name, international brands. The avenue is home to a wide range of eateries, from the inexpensive cafe to fine dining establishments.

  • I liked walking in this street as it has plenty of famous brands stores and some restaurants and markets.  more »
  • Nice, full Street, full of shops, restaurants, etc. We take that we saw a couple of fakes. Meet you see Louis Wheaton so you see price $90. So are you asking whether they are aware of this fake total almost with pride. Strange. And full of homeless people seeking money. Lady with flowers that really jumps out at you to buy.

Where to stay in Tbilisi

Strung out alongside the Mtkvari River, Tbilisi's historical core and bustling city center offers an array of accommodation options. Choose the fortress hill, the more northern residential districts, or a main street in the center of the action. Large international chain hotels offer luxury options, complete with fine dining, air conditioning, and more. However, you can also choose from more economical, mid-level options located around Rustaveli Avenue and Tbilisi's old town. For the lowest cost, consider one of the ubiquitous hostels.
