Visit some of the most interesting sights of Mestia with a guide. It is a good idea to start on your own start Svaneti Museum in central Mestia, and go on this tour after you see the exhibition and are ready to explore the environment that produced the items you just saw in the museum. Meet the guide near the museum building and proceed to Lanchvali area on foot. Visit the Traditional Svan House & Tower complex (the tower is open for climbing, you can go all the way to the roof for bird’s eye views of Mestia). Then a car will take you a few km eastwards to the neighbouring Lahami area where you will visit Transfiguration Church of Lahami with 9-13 century frescoes, and the Museum of Alpinism, the traditional sport of Svaneti (museum closed on Monday).
* entrance tickets to museums are not included (10 GEL per person for 2 museums and church)
