This tour focusses on the small town in eastern Georgia located on the hillside, in the historic region of Kakheti. The city was transformed into the face of Georgian tourism and is one of the most visited places in Georgia. Cozy little town, lined with buildings in the style of South Italian classicism, scenic panoramas, mountain fortress wall surrounding Sighnaghi’s old part of the town, towers around offering stunning views of the Alazani Valley – all of this will definitely leave an unforgettable impression that is going to last for a lifetime. In the afternoon we end the tour with a monastery of Bodbe which is located in Kakheti, two kilometers away from the city Signaki. Bodbe is one of the most important shrines of Georgia, here rests the Enlightener of Georgia – Saint Nino, who brought Christianity to Georgia in 316 BC, it is one of the most venerated saints of the Georgian people. St. Nino went through the whole country, healing the sick, performing miracles and drawing people to the

Christian faith. St. Nino died here at the age of 67 years and bequeathed to be buried on this land. In the valley to the north-east of the monastery there is a spring of Saint Nino. Currently, there is a bath and a small church, built in the name of the parents of St. Nino, saints Zebulon and Susanna. Bodbe murals are the most outstanding work of art XVIII – XIX centuries, it is a final stage of the medieval Georgian Fine Arts, which is characterized by ever-increasing impact of modern European art and at the same time preserving the traditions of Orthodox iconography and distinctive national features.
