FAQs

Can I eat well vegetarian in Georgia?

Yes, Georgia has a rich and varied cuisine with many vegetarian dishes. There is an abundance of delicious salads, pies, soups, casseroles, potato, rice, corn, bean dishes prepared without meat or fish. If you have certain allergies, please let us know in advance of the trip.

How is the climate in Georgia?

The short version: The weather is similar to the weather in Italy.

Located in a depression between the Greater and Lesser Caucasus Mountains, Georgia has warm summers and mild winters.
Due to its varied relief, the climate varies greatly from region to region.
So in July it can be 37 degrees in Tbilisi, but only 22 in Stepantsminda and 19 in Ushguli.

East Georgia is drier and hotter, while west Georgia is milder and wetter, influenced by the Black Sea.

All hotels and inns as well as most cafes offer free WiFi access.
