A big tourism-oriented renovation program has seen a rash of new accommodation spring up, but the town’s original style has been maintained. Sighnaghi has wonderful views over the Alazani valley to the Caucasus beyond, and is a pleasant place to spend a night or two. Hopefully they will have stopped the rented quad-bikes roaring up and down the main street by the time you get there.
Sighnaghi was originally developed in the 18th century by King Erekle II, partly as a refuge for the area’s populace against Lezgin and Persian attacks.
"Our experience was truly outstanding--it was a pleasure to plan with your staff, and your creativity and thoughtfulness really resulted in a wonderful trip. We will remember the people you connected us with even more than the terrific locations."
