Sity of Signagi (Region of Kakheti)

Signagi (Georg. სიღნაღი) – small town in the east of Georgia situated on the mountainside in the historical region of Kakheti. It is the only city in Georgia that has fully preserved the fortress walls that are crowned with watchtowers, where one can climb to get the magnificent view of the Alazani valley. New pages in the history book of the small town have been written in the last decades with the beginning of the capital reconstruction. The aim is to transform Signagi into the centre of tourism.

The town has two central squares with casinos, banks, mayor’s office and a wedding house where one marry anytime of the day. Thus, Signagi is called the city of lovers. You will find many cosy places, hotels and hostels to your taste, street cafes and restaurants, where you can try the home-made Kakhetian wines. By 2007 Signagi has turned into a European town with narrow cobbled streets, that are winding and steep, and districts full of one or two storey houses with bright red tiled roof in the style of South Italian classicism.
