The best time to travel to Tbilisi

The capital of Georgia is usually warm, sunny and welcoming you all year round. However, its climatic characteristics should be considered when planning a trip.

☔ The spring in Tbilisi is usually bright and pleasant, but evenings and nights are cold, so it is better to take a warm jacket with you. May is the month with the most precipitation - an umbrella might be a good idea if you plan a visit around this time.

☀️ The summer, which lasts from mid-May to the end of September, is very hot and dry. The temperature often rises to + 40°C.

💡The autumn is perfect for long walks and exploring the area. The weather is sunny and merely beautiful with average temperatures of + 22-25°C and it rarely rains. At the same time, it is the season of grape harvesting, and guests can taste young wine.

🌨️ The winter is mild and dry, almost free of snow, mostly without sudden temperature changes, and well suited for excursions in the mountains and gregarious evenings with a glass of wine.
