Tbilisi is the capital and largest city in Georgia, lying on the banks of Mtkvari River, surrounded by mountains on three sides. It has an ideal geopolitical position, as it is on the crossroad between Europe and Asia, close to the famous Silk Road. Tbilisi Old Town with its narrow alleys and significant out of shape houses has been intact. The newer part of the city has been recently changed with modern architecture.

Rental car companies in Tbilisi offer the opportunity to hire a self-driven or a chauffeur-driven vehicle. According to previous experiences, it is more secure in hiring a chauffeur-driven rental car due to the language obstacle, one-way streets, road hazards and driving rules.
Tbilisi taxis are a popular way of getting around the city due to low prices. You can call a local taxi company or hail one on the street. Always negotiate the rate before entering the vehicle, as most of the taxis don't own a meter.
