Tbilisi City Guide
Tbilisi, Georgia, is a bright, wonderfully chaotic city that will delight and inspire
you. From the skinny serpentine streets of Old Town to top-notch restaurants
and bars, Tbilisi is a riotous celebration of creativity and chicness.
Tips for Finding Your Way
For all of its boho vibe, the Georgian capital Tbilisi is a relatively modern and
streamlined city with plenty of transportation options, including a speedy metro
and on-demand taxi services like Yandex and Bolt. There’s complimentary WiFi
in the downtown core, and most restaurants, cafes, and attractions will take
cards, cash, and mobile wallet payments.
Before You Go
Download Bolt before you arrive so you don’t need
to pay for an airport taxi and risk getting overcharged. Tbilisi is roughly 20
minutes away from the airport via car.
When You Land
Pick up a SIM card at the airport by card or with cash. You can also install
an e-SIM on some newer phone models.
Avoid taxis waiting outside the airpor, instead, use Bolt to book a ride for the average price of 24 GEL, or $9.50.
Connect with complimentary airport WiFi at “Tbilisi Loves You” or “Airport
Getting Around the City
Get a Metrocard (in any Metro station) to pay on buses and the subway
easily. Most of Tbilisi’s top attractions are on the primary (red) subway line
in Avlabari, Liberty Square, and Rustaveli. Indigo’s event is at Stamba, very
close to the Rustaveli subway stop.
Bank of Georgia and TBC are Georgia’s two dominant banks, and their
ATMs are also in English . Most places take cards or your mobile wallet.
Bolt taxis run throughout the city, and your average cost will be 6 GEL or $2.30 to most major places in town.
