Itinerary Description:

Begin in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, and discover the incredible blend of the modern and the ancient. Walking in the shadow of contemporary glass skyscrapers in the seventh century old town Icheri Sheher perfectly illustrates this blend through architecture. Explore the Zoroastrian culture of the country when visiting the Temple of Eternal Fire on the Absheron Peninsula and inspect some of the world's oldest rock drawings in Gobustan National Park.

Continue to Georgia and discover Tbilisi's hidden treasures, including the Mtkvari River running though town. Uncover the country's Christian roots set against spectacular mountain landscapes at Mtscketa, Ananuri Fortress, and Gergeti Tsminda Sameba Trinity Church. Taste wine in the Kakheti region, known as the birthplace of wine, and visit the birthplace of Christianity in the country at the Monastery of Saint Nino at Bodbe. Exclusive performance from the Georgian National men's choral group makes your last evening in Georgia festive and fun.

Close your journey in the Republic of Armenia, taking a scenic drive over the border with Georgia to the capital city Yerevan, stopping en route in the border town of Lori. The complex of cathedrals at Etchmiadzin and the Khor Virap Monastery will showcase the incredible Christian heritage of the country, while the Hellenistic-era Garni Temple goes farther back into history. Luxury travel in the Caucasus region is authentic, untouched, and seldom-visited.
