fantastic place for any age person. you can go there by the cable car from Rike Park. Name of this fortress means "Little Fortress".

The climb isn't that tough considering the rewarding views of the city. The fortress itself isn't much. Cable car is an easier way to head up and the Mother Georgia statue is pretty close.

Ancient fortress in the old town area. Great views from the fortress and the church on the property. Very unique remains from ancient times. Easy to take the cable car and then walk down the fortress.

The fortress is quite well preserved, and bigger than I thought. It is worth a walk there, also to enjoy the nice view over the city.

Had to walk up the hill as the cable car was closed because of the wind. Very nice panorama of the city. Free access.

Narikala can be riched by rope way. The ticket should be bought from metro station. It is possible to go there via rope way and come back via a pedestrain road which is very attractive.

You will rarely get the opportunity to visit a fort originally built in the 4th century. You can feel the history. It is possible to walk up, but I would recommend the cable car.
